Congress's job is to pass laws that serve the American people. However, Congress often passes sweeping reforms into law and then fails to make updates to ensure they're working in the real world.
The Affordable Care Act (ACA), which made sweeping reforms to our nation's health care system, is a prime example. While health care reform helps improve the accessibility of health coverage, it is not perfect and reasonable fixes would ensure the law works for American families. Unfortunately, partisanship has prevented Congress from making commonsense, bipartisan fixes to the law.
One necessary fix is the repeal of the excise tax on medical devices, which was included as part of the payment plan for health care reform.
