In the run-up to the 2008 U.S. presidential election, health care is the leading domestic policy issue that voters want the next president to address. Americans are alarmed by the rising costs of health insurance and health care. At the same time, more than 40 million uninsured Americans are receiving inadequate care and placing increasing strains on the U.S. health care system. Part of the Baker Institute's series "Campaign 2008: The Issues Considered," this event will consider the key steps that the next president must take to reform the U.S. health care system. Key policy issues regarding health insurance coverage, controlling health care costs and financing health care reform will be discussed. The speakers will include Karen Davis, Ph.D., President of The Commonwealth Fund, and Jonathan S. Skinner, Ph.D., John Sloan Dickey Third Century Professor of Economics, Dartmouth.
