Should Conservatives Fix the Affordable Care Act, or Scrap It?

This is my last day guest-posting for Megan. Thanks, Megan, for the opportunity, and thanks to all of you for enduring my endless, dry recitations of health care statistics. Thanks also to Derek Thompson for his patient editing. If you're interested in continuing to follow my work, I encourage you to visit my blog at Forbes, which also has a weekly email digest, an RSS feed, and a Twitter feed.

I've been very impressed by the quantity and quality of your comments. I did my best to chime in from time to time--sorry I couldn't do more.

For a change of pace, here's some video from a debate I had a few weeks back, sponsored by the Manhattan Institute, with Paul Starr, founder of The American Prospect. The topic was whether or not conservatives should seek to fix the Affordable Care Act, instead of striving to repeal it wholesale. The whole thing lasts about an hour.



Here's a catalog of some of my representative work from the past year, in which I discuss, among other things: the upcoming Supreme Court case on the Affordable Care Act; the ins-and-outs of the health-policy positions of the various Republican presidential candidates; FDA reform; Medicare and Medicaid reform; and some of the interesting myths that pervade the health care debate.

Hasta la vista!
