What the Presidential Candidates Are Saying—and Not Saying—About Their Healthcare Plans
Opinion polls have consistently shown that healthcare is the top domestic priority of Americans. With the primary season approaching, the leading Democratic and Republican presidential candidates have released their healthcare plans—proposing reforms from cost containment to insurance deregulation and universal coverage. Join us as our distinguished panel dissects the healthcare plans from the leading Republican and Democratic presidential candidates.
