Why the Democrats Passed an Unpopular Health Care Reform
Sponsor
Elena and Miles Zaremski Law-Medicine Forum
presented by the Law-Medicine Center
MAR 27, 2012
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Location
Moot Courtroom (A59)
Professor White will discuss questions raised by the recent U.S. health care reform:
- How was Congress able to pass health reform?
- What did voters want from that reform?
- Why didn’t Democrats pass a bill that produced the results they knew voters wanted?
- Why was an unpopular bill the only reform that could pass?
- Why did Congress pass the unpopular Act?
Speaker Information
Joseph WhiteJoseph White
Luxenberg Family Professor of Public Policy and Chair, Department of Political Science
Director, Center for Policy Studies; Professor, Epidemiology and Biostatistics
Case Western Reserve University

Joseph White spent the 2010-11 academic year on sabbatical at the Conservatoire National des Arts et Metiers in Paris and the Rothermere American Institute of Oxford University. Even in Europe, he found himself writing and giving talks about U.S. health care reform. During the 2009-10 debate, Professor White’s analyses were published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, Health Affairs, New England Journal of Medicine, and on web sites such as Roll Call, Health Affairs, and the Institute for America’s Future. Since reform passed, he has published articles and book chapters on the politics of cost control, ideology of the conflict, disagreements within the Democratic Party, and the relationship between budget politics and health care reform politics. He is now writing a book on policies to control health care spending and participating in a working group on the roles of experts in health care politics, both examining cases from the U.S. and other rich democracies.
