Unfunded Healthcare Workforce Commission Has Been Unable To Start Work.

The Washington Post (5/14, Goldstein) reported that “in the eight months since” the members of the National Healthcare Workforce Commission were named, “the commission has been unable to start any work. The group cannot convene, converse or hire staff because $3 million that it needs for its initial year has been blocked by two partisan wars on Capitol Hill — strife over the federal budget and Republicans’ disdain for the healthcare changes that Democrats muscled into law 14 months ago.” The commission “is unlike many other aspects of the law, which have built-in money to carry them out.”
