Dismantling of the HIV/AIDS Council, CHIP Funding In Jeopardy, and Obamacare’s Death by a Thousand Cuts



On today’s show, I am joined by Cara Stewart of the Kentucky Equal Justice Center to discuss three important healthcare stories that have gotten lost in recent political coverage.  We discuss the future of U.S. HIV/AIDS policy and research in the wake of President Trump firing the members of the Presidential Council on HIV/AIDS, the likelihood of Congress securing funding for the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) and how this affects families in Kentucky and across the country, and the impact of the GOP Tax bill on healthcare policy.   I learned a great deal from this conversation with Cara, and I hope that it can be the same experience for you!
