Columbia Basin Badger Club Webinar: “Should the U.S. guarantee healthcare for all?” – October 15, 2020

Online Zoom Event
From 12 noon – 1 p.m.
Free to participate – must register for this Zoom session

Some say that the U.S. healthcare is the best in the world, with its high-quality medical schools and cutting-edge research. Others say the U.S. health care is the most expensive, least effective system with its yearly $3.6 trillion price tag, and nearly 28 million left uninsured. Families, even with high deductible coverage, struggle to pay for premiums and prescriptions.

Then Covid struck, resulting not only in huge numbers of infections and deaths, but also mass unemployment leading to an additional 5.4 million without health insurance. How can we, as a country, get a handle on this? Is it time for universal basic health care for U.S. citizens? Should we consider health care as a “human right”? If so, on what basis?

How does the state address these issues? What are the unintended consequences of these events? How will Washington’s businesses evolve as a consequence of the disruptions and unemployment?

Where are we today and where do you see the state’s business community being a year or two years from now?
