Last Tuesday, we watched the riveting first-ever Congressional hearings on MFA in the House Rules Committee featuring our advisory board members Rep. Jim McGovern (the committee chair), and Rep. Jamie Raskin (one of PDA’s original cofounders). Jamie offered heartfelt testimony of his own personal healthcare struggle. Also last week, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) released findings showing MFA is affordable and practical.
