Why should conservatives care about achieving universal health care? What policies should they pursue to accomplish it? Can they join Democrats in forging a bipartisan approach? Taking place shortly after the 2018 midterm elections, this discussion will consider potential solutions to the U.S. health care crisis. Within the context of the failure of full ACA repeal, the removal of the individual mandate, and the emergence of a range of new liberal proposals for changes to the system, what are the options for the new Congress? AVIK ROY, a policy researcher, journalist, and advisor, will help explain the conservative case for moving toward a bipartisan, universal health care plan. This conversation will be moderated by GUIAN MCKEE, associate professor of presidential studies at the Miller Center.
