“The reason that most people have a negative impression about the so-called Affordable Care Act is because the government has taken away so many of our choices from us.” - Horace Cooper, legal fellow with the National Center for Public Policy Research and co-chair of Project 21

Cooper discussed efforts to repeal and replace Obamacare with host Thom Hartmann and conservative commentator Matt Demar on the March 22, 2017 episode of “The Big Picture with Thom Hartmann.”

Cooper also defended the value of profit in health care, arguing that profit gives an incentive for professionals to offer excellent service. The panel also discussed the recent ban of laptops in carry-on baggage on certain flights.
