Affordable Care Act

Illuminating presentation on Affordable Care Act Monday night at the Laramie County Democratic Party's monthly meeting. Jan Drury and Jason Mincer from Consumer Advocates/Project Healthcare spoke about the many ways the ACA has (and will) help Wyoming -- and how Wyoming Republicans are attempting to stymie it at every turn.

Of particular concern is a committee formed by former Gov. Dave Freudenthal that's studying health care exchanges in the state. The committee is made up of, well. we're not sure who's on the committee. We know that consumers don't have a voice. Insurance industry has plenty of voices. Loud voices.

It will be interesting (and infuriating) to see what unfolds...
