Repeal, Replace, Reform 

I will be participating in a discussion at the American Enterprise Institute tomorrow called "Beyond 'Repeal and Replace,'" focusing on suggestions for reforming health care. Details can be found here.

Meanwhile, I participated in another AEI forum (cosponsored by the National Review Institute) a few weeks ago on what the new Congress should be doing about health care. Quite naturally, the conversation centered on what should be done to undo the Obama health care law. I focused my comments on why "repeal and replace" is a necessary condition for just about everything else the new House majority wants to achieve. Kate O'Beirne of National Review Institute moderated the panel, and I was joined in offering comments by Ramesh Ponnuru of National Review and Dr. Scott Gottlieb of AEI. Details and video are available here. The event was also broadcast on C-SPAN, which posted its video here.
