“Joe Biden has been running an ad in which he says he can’t imagine what it would be like to have a child with cancer and no health coverage. I don’t have to imagine. Under the health 'reform' championed by Biden when he served as President Barack Obama’s Vice President, I live that reality every day.
Christopher B. Briggs, Publications and Public Affairs Counsel, Independent Institute; from his article, “My Kid Has Cancer and ObamaCare Is Making Everything Worse” (New York Post, October 26, 2020)

This video features 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 discuss 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.

John C. Goodman is Senior Fellow at the Independent Institute, President of the Goodman Institute for Public Policy Research, and author of the widely acclaimed, Independent books, New Way to Care: Social Protections that Put Families First, A Better Choice: Healthcare Solutions for America, and the award-winning, Priceless: Curing the Healthcare Crisis. The Wall Street Journal and the National Journal, among other media, have called him the “Father of Health Savings Accounts.”
