Location: The Heritage Foundation's Lehrman Auditorium

Most Americans think that health care costs too much, that too many people can't afford insurance, and that the entire system needs to be reformed.  And most Americans also don't want government bureaucrats interfering with doctor-patient relationships, taking away their existing health coverage, invading their privacy, limiting their right to seek better care, or jacking up their taxes.  Can Congress address the first set of problems without causing the second set?  Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK) - the Senate's only physician - thinks the Congress can and believes he has the detailed legislative remedy.
