What Now? The Future of Healthcare Policy and Its Long-Term Impact on the Budget



On April 26, 2010 EPPC Fellow James C. Capretta participated in a public forum entitled, “What Now? The Future of Healthcare Policy and Its Long-Term Impact on the Budget.” The event was moderated by EPPC Senior Fellow Rick Santorum and focused on the risks associated with passage of another large federal entitlement program just as the U.S. government has entered a period of unprecedented borrowing and economic risk.
