The Concord Coalition will conduct an interactive budget and philosophical exercise where health policy students discuss and debate the hard choices associated with additional health care reforms and ideas to reign in excess cost-growth escalation in the U.S. health care system.
The Concord Coalition believes that only with an engaged, informed and demanding public can the nation's fiscal challenges be met. The Concord Coalition's mission is to cut through the usual partisan rhetoric and stimulate a more realistic public dialogue on what we want our nation's future to look like, along with the required trade-offs. We believe that elected leaders in Washington know there is a problem, but they are unlikely to act unless forced to by their constituents.
