The Scouting Report: Reforming the Health Care System

Event Materials


Without reform, rising health care costs are slated to worsen the long-term budget outlook in the U.S.

Yet proposals to expand coverage to the uninsured might cost more than no reform at all. As a major congressional debate on this starts, noted health care expert Henry Aaron joined Politico’s Fred Barbash for a live web chat on how to balance the fiscal and societal issues at play in reforming the health care system.
