With a new political landscape in many statehouses and in Congress, what steps can federal and state officials take to address voters' serious concerns about the sweeping impact of the health overhaul law on deficits, jobs, existing health coverage, and costs? What can legislators do to move toward free-market solutions in health policy? The American Action Forum, the Galen Institute, and the Institute for Policy Innovation will host a forum with leading authorities to discuss plans and ideas to guide elected officials in Washington and state capitals in addressing these and other health policy challenges.
