UCLA Health Care Debate

The UCLA Objectivist Club will be sponsoring the following debate on October 30, 2008, "Universal Health Care: The Cure or the Disease?":
Universal Health Care: The Cure or the Disease?

Thursday, October 30, 2008 (7:00pm - 9:00pm)

UCLA Campus: Moore 100

Health care has been an important issue in politics, especially in the last several years. Amidst much specific policy analysis and political quibbling over superficial issues, the fundamentals have been ignored: What are the underlying philosophic and economic considerations? Is universal health care moral? Does it achieve its stated goal? Is there an ethical and practical alternative?

Come hear Professor Mark Kleiman (UCLA Department of Public Policy) and Dr. Peter LePort, M.D. (Ayn Rand Institute Board of Directors) answer your questions about the issue of universal health care.

7:00pm: Opening Statements
7:30pm: Q & A with the Audience
