On today's episode of Clear Path, Greg talks about how the big plans to replace the Affordable Care Act did not succeed in these early days of the new administration. Nonetheless, there are rumors of plans to strengthen the Affordable Care Act. Hector De La Torre goes into detail on new developments.

Hector De La Torre is the Executive Director of the Transamerica Center for Health Studies, a nonprofit focused on helping consumers and businesses navigate the health care landscape. De La Torre was chosen to lead this new initiative because of his private and public sector experience, particularly his leadership role on health care and advocating for consumers and businesses. Among his accomplishments as an elected official were expanding access to doctors in underserved communities, consumer protections against retroactive cancellation of health insurance, and supporting facilities improvements at Children’s Hospitals.
