Audio/Video: Richard Epstein Debates Whether Health Care is a Right
On April 9 the Miller Center of Public Affairs at the University of Virgina held an event in their National Discussion and Debate Series at Boston's historic Faneuil Hall. Four participants, including our own Richard Epstein, examined the resolution: "Americans have a fundamental right to health care, and it is the obligation of government to secure that right."
Audio, video, and a transcript of the debate are now available from the Miller Center's website.
The other participants were: JudyAnn Bigby, MD (Secretary of Health and Human Services for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts), Regina Herzlinger (Professor of Business Administration at Harvard Business School), and Dick Armey (Chairman of FreedomWorks and former House Majority Leader).The debate was moderated by Susan Dentzer, Health Correspondent for PBS's NewsHour with Jim Lehrer.
