Health Care at the Crossroads: What Constitutes Fair and Equal?
Recorded on September 6, 2007
Location: The Heritage Foundation's Lehrman Auditorium
National polls show that health care remains a top priority and
concern of Americans. With health care costs increasing and
the retirement of one of our largest generations imminent, we face
a major crossroads for this important issue. Do we take the
path advocated by some and start to force all citizens - even those
enjoying private care - into substandard universal government run
coverage? Or, do we take a more dynamic approach that
provides alternatives and choices for an informed public?
Furthermore, how do we continue to approach the volatile issue of
federal incentives and disincentives to health care - namely the
tax treatment in law? Join us for a discussion of these
questions as well as opportunities in current legislation - such as
SCHIP - to formulate and advance a real health care reform
