Joe Biden has been running an ad in which he says he cant imagine what it would be like to have a child with cancer and no health coverage. I dont have to imagine. Under the health 'reform' championed by Biden when he served as President Barack Obamas Vice President, I live that reality every day.

This event featured Independent Institute Executive Director Dr. Graham H. Walker interviewing Christopher B. Briggs and Independent Senior Fellow John C. Goodman on the horrendous experience Mr. Briggs and his family have endured with the passage of Affordable Care Act ("ObamaCare") after his youngest daughter was diagnosed with leukemia. They then discussed healthcare in America, the enormous harms being caused by ObamaCare and the market-based, patient-centered reforms that are needed now and for the future, as are discussed in the new Independent book by Dr. Goodman, New Way to Care: Social Protections that Put Families First.
