Health Care 2008: Big Government vs. Individual and Family Choice

Recorded on April 3, 2008

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Allison Auditorium

Washington bureaucracy.  Government-run health care.  Mandates.  Wage garnishment for those who do not enroll in a national plan.  Price controls.  More than ever before, we are on the brink of describing health care in America by these words.

But, conservatives in Congress are fighting back.  Over the next eight weeks, Senators David Vitter (R-LA), Richard Burr (R-NC), Mel Martinez (R-FL), Johnny Isakson (R-GA), Tom Coburn (R-OK), Jim DeMint (R-SC), John Thune (R-SD), and Bob Corker (R-TN) will be spreading the conservative message on health care.  Through coordinated media education and speeches on the floor of the United States Senate, these senators will define the stark contrast between liberal government-controlled health care and the conservative vision that would allow Americans to own and control the health care plans for their families. 

Join us as four of these Senators outline their health care reform plans and address why it is vital to stop a big government takeover of health care.
