"Am I My Brother's Medical Keeper?"

The debate over the Affordable Care Act during President Obama’s administration and the ongoing debate over the future of the ACA today makes very clear how divided we are over who should fund health care and how, what it means to provide access to good quality healthcare, what choices individuals and families should have regarding their health care coverage, the obligations we have to others in our community, who counts as a community member, and the trade-offs we should make in shaping the U.S. health care system. At its heart, this divide is about differing views on what sort of good health care is, what it is for, and how a health care system should and can work.  But that value question is rarely addressed head-on in debates about whether the ACA should be replaced and, if so, by what.  The panel discussion and interactive demonstration we have planned will help us explore these issues as a community.
