During our deliberation, we’ll be talking about how to fix our We’ll be talking about actions and drawbacks to reducing health care costs by three different options:

(1) Ensuring health care for all: All Americans deserve health care, so let’s cover everybody, but doing so would eliminate private insurance


(2) Build on what we have: Improve the mix of public and private options by revising the ACA, but doing so keeps private insurance in place and wastes billions of dollars on advertising and paperwork


(3) Let people make their own choices: Reduce government involvement in health care by allowing stripped down insurance or no coverage, but doing could lead to everyone paying more and people receiving sub-par care.
