Congressional staff not worried about defunding health reform

Health staff for CT’s delegation are not concerned about prospects of defunding national health reform – a great relief for policymakers across the states worrying about their responsibilities under the law. A lot of the funding is mandatory. In general, everyone has a great attitude about the constant stream of votes by the new majority in the House to repeal everything accomplished in the last two years. I tend to be worried when I come down for these trips, but I leave very comforted – everything will be OK. They all emphasized that their members are eager to help us secure every opportunity for CT to build our health system and support innovations. They will be sorry they offered.
