Intelligence Squared US: Obamacare is Beyond Rescue

(Rochester, NY) – With the disastrous launch of the website, critics of the Affordable Care Act, or "Obamacare," were given more fuel for the fire. Is this political hot potato's inevitability once again at stake? And is the medical community really on board with the law, or resisting (rewriting?) it from the sidelines? Intelligence Squared US: Obamacare is Beyond Rescue debates these questions, Sunday, March 9 at 9 p.m. on AM 1370. John Donvan moderates.

Speaking for the motion: Dr. Scott Gottlieb, Practicing Physician & Former Deputy Commissioner, FDA; Megan McArdle, Writer and Columnist, Bloomberg View. Speaking against the motion: Jonathan Chait, Political Commentator and Columnist, New York Magazine; Dr. Douglas Kamerow, Family Physician & Former Assistant Surgeon General.
