Evening Ethics: The Case for Universal Healthcare by David Colton

Sep 25, 2020, 5:30 pm

Join us for a presentation and Q&A with David Colton, author of The Case for Universal Healthcare.

With the exception of the United States, all developed nations provide their citizens with quality, affordable health care. And, despite its having expanded access through such programs as Medicare, Medicaid, SCHIP, and the Affordable Care Act, nearly 20 million Americans still do not have health insurance. Worse, efforts by the Republican Party to dismantle the ACA and increases in premiums could leave millions more without the financial means to afford treatment when needed.

Countries that guarantee health coverage to all their citizens have done so recognizing the health of the nation is dependent on the health of their people. This has not occurred in the United States, not only because powerful forces have mounted a vast campaign against it, but also because no plan with clear solutions and guidelines has yet emerged.
