Interview: Aaron Carroll, MD, Center for Health Policy and Professionalism Research, IU School of Medicine



Well, it looks like the health care reform process that’s been alive, and then comatose, is now flickering back to life.

As we record this mid-week, President Obama is laying out what he hopes will be the end-game to get the House to approve the bill that has already passed the Senate …with the understanding that then, the Senate will go back and amend its version so that both sides can pass it.

And as one step, the President has said that he SUPPORTS four adjustments to the measure that Republicans have proposed.

Here to walk us through what those changes would be is our regular analyst on this topic, Dr. Aaron Carroll.
