Description
The future of health care in the United States is a critical issue in the 2008 presidential election, and the two candidates have radically different proposals. Senator Obama favors an employer mandate with subsidies for those who do not qualify under the mandate, while Senator McCain favors a market-based approach much like President Bush's. Senior health policy advisors David Cutler of Harvard University for Democrat Barack Obama, and Gail Wilensky of Project HOPE for Republican John McCain, discuss their candidates' positions on health care reform in a symposium cosponsored by the New England Journal of Medicine and the Harvard School of Public Health.
David Cutler and Gail Wilensky, health policy advisors to Obama and McCain, discuss the candidates' positions on health care reform.
