Hayek Auditorium
Featuring the author Philip Klein, Commentary Editor, Washington Examiner; with comments by Avik Roy, Senior Fellow, Manhattan Institution; Jeffrey H. Anderson, Executive Director, The 2017 Project; and Michael F. Cannon, Director of Health Policy Studies, Cato Institute.

Contrary to myth, Obamacare’s opponents have many alternatives to the health care law that is once again before the Supreme Court. The Washington Examiner’s Philip Klein, a leading conservative health care writer, takes us inside the debate on the right over how to overhaul the health care system along free‐​market lines in the wake of a ruling in King v. Burwell, and possibly in the wake of Obamacare.

Drawing on eight years of experience reporting on the issue, and dozens of interviews with prominent health policy experts, Klein lays out a free‐​market vision for health care and presents three competing approaches to getting there: reform, replace, and restart. Join us to hear from Klein, as well as from leading proponents of each school of thought.
