Halperin: Tom Price Is Not Being Honest About What Their Health Care Bill Will Do

‘His defense is not honest about what it will be’

EXCERPT:

HALPERIN: "The Affordable Care Act is a model of clarity compared to this. The Affordable Care Act represents a vision of a relatively unified Democratic Party about how the government, the federal government, should interact with the health care markets. I don’t understand this piece of legislation. I don 't understand how it comes close to representing the conservative vision of lower premiums, better coverage. There is such evasion. Look at the debate leading into this vote in the Senate. There's no one talking about a vision. The loudest voices are the people saying this is a bad idea. I don't hear anybody except Tom Price defending it. And his defense of it is not honest about what it will be."
