Where Is Health Care Headed in the United States?
Heartland Policy Advisor John Garven will break down the debate surrounding health care reform and give his perspective about the overall outlook for health care in America.
This is not the first time Congress has debated controversial health care reform proposals, nor is it the first time that downright bitter, partisan politics have come into play and confused the issues. Along the way, some efforts have succeeded, but many others have failed.
Many Republicans have campaigned heavily since the 2010 mid-term elections on the promise of repealing and replacing Obamacare. Now that the GOP is in charge, though, they’re realizing that governing is a whole lot more challenging than playing the role of the opposition party. Certainly, what we have seen to date with the “repeal and replace” effort is testimony to this fact.
Heartland Policy Advisor John Garven will be with us on July 26 to provide an informed perspective about how we got into the mess we are now in, and to offer his thoughts about where all of this may be headed in the years ahead.
