Talking About Replacing Obamacare 

Last month, I was very pleased to be invited to appear on Brian Lehrer’s radio show (public radio in NYC) to talk about an alternative vision for health care reform, one that is very different from the vision embodied in Obamacare. The invitation to appear on the show was prompted by the piece Bob Moffit and I wrote for National Affairs magazine, entitled “How to Replace Obamacare.” The discussion focused on the reforms that are necessary to build a functioning marketplace for health care in the United States.

In addition, the American Enterprise Institute (where I am a visiting fellow) recently asked me to record a series of brief video remarks outlining the major features of a replacement plan for Obamacare. Those remarks closely follow the points I made with Bob in our National Affairs piece. AEI has posted the recorded videos on its YouTube channel.

For those who might be interested, the radio show is available here, and the AEI videos are available here.
