Jacob Hacker Writes on the GOP’s Attempt to Dismantle the ACA

June 4, 2018
Jacob Hacker’s new article is on the most ambitious effort to dismantle a social program in American history.  The Repeal and Replace the Affordable Care Act was only three votes short of enactment.  Read Hacker’s article, “The Dog That Almost Barked: What the ACA Repeal Fight Says about the Resilience of the American Welfare State” (with Paul Pierson) recently published in Journal of Health Politics, Policy and Law on why it failed and what it means for retrenchment politics and polarization.
