Why Health Care Professionals Are So Pessimistic About Reform

I was positively stunned to learn that many congressmen acknowledged they had not read the latest health care bill (The Meadows-MacArthur Amendment to the American Health Care Act or AHCA) before it was recently approved by the House of Representatives.
