Description/Abstract of your Event: 

Real health care for all has been elusive in the United States, principally but not entirely because health care now represents more than a sixth of the U.S. economy, and the profiteers are not going down without a fight. Since early 2017, and especially since the flipping of the U.S. House in Fall 2018, we've come closer than ever to achieving our goal. Who's in this fight, and what's the situation and prognosis? Join our expert panel for an action-oriented update!
