Good news: Sen. Burr not optimistic about ACA replacement this year

North Carolina Senator Richard Burr is making national news today with comments he made to WXII 12 News about the chances that the Senate will approve health care legislation this year to replace the Affordable Care Act.

Burr said he “doesn’t see a comprehensive health care plan this year”  and said the House bill that the CBO says will increase the number of people without insurance by 23 million is “dead on arrival” in the Senate.

The Wall Street Journal was the first national outlet to pick up on the comments, which were cited in the Talking Points Memo article.

Let’s hope Burr is right. He has plenty to work on anyway with the Russia investigation in his role as the Chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee.
