How Should Washington Control Medicare Spending? 

On May 19, I participated in a public forum in Washington, D.C., sponsored by the Heritage Foundation, called “How Should Washington Control Medicare Spending?” My remarks focused on why a market-based reform of Medicare would be far superior to government-imposed cost controls. A transcript of the event is now available here, and the video is here. My slides are also available here.
