Responsible Health Reform: Competition, Innovation, and Individual Control
AEI on the Hill
About This Event

Americans spend over $2 trillion annually on health care, and health costs are growing at unsustainable rates. Millions of Americans are uninsured. Those with insurance are concerned that they are not getting enough value for their health care dollars. These problems are driving the rising chorus of demands for major health system reform. Can Congress take action to resolve these issues without creating new bureaucracies and imposing new restrictions that interfere with medical progress? Can reform ensure access to affordable, quality health care that protects the doctor-patient relationship?

At this event, Senators Richard Burr (R-N.C.) and Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) will offer a market-based reform proposal that relies on stronger competition in the health system, tax reforms, individual responsibility and ownership, and more active consumer involvement in medical decisions. Joseph Antos and Thomas P. Miller of AEI will offer their assessments of the key features of the Burr-Coburn proposal.

Please note this event is taking place at 325 Russell Senate Office Building.
