Jonathan Gruber on Mitt Romney and Health Care Reform
“Jonathan Gruber: A Comic-Book Treatise on Healthcare Reform” was a program presented by The Town Hall Center for Civic Life, with University Book Store.
Jonathan Gruber, who served as an adviser for both the Massachusetts and national health care reform bills, talked about the history, current state, and future of health care in the U.S. He had written a graphic novel-style book about health care reform to present the basic facts to the average citizen and persuade them of the need for reform. Professor Gruber also spoke some about the health care system instituted in Massachusetts while Mitt Romney was governor of the state. He was interviewed on stage by Bob Crittenden and also responded to questions from members of the audience, including Lowell Weiss.
