House parties discuss health care
St. Paul, Minn. — The last of the Obama transition team "house parties" on health care takes place this week.
At thousands of private homes, people have contributed their concerns and ideas about how to solve problems in the delivery of, and payment for, health care.
It's just the beginning of a process that many believe will begin early in the Obama administration despite the economic crisis.
- Len Nichols: Director, Health Policy Program at the New America Foundation.
- Julie Brunner: Executive director of the Minnesota Council of Health Plans.
