Episode Summary

EDIT
Watch this debate on Bloomberg Television starting Friday, January 14th at 9PM ET. In March 2010 President Obama signed into law the Affordable Care Act, the biggest overhaul of our health care system in decades. According to a November poll from the Kaiser Family Foundation, 40 percent of the public would like Congress to expand the new health reform law or leave it as is, while 49 percent are in favor of repealing all or parts of it. Can the new law reduce the deficit and expand coverage to millions of uninsured Americans, or, as its critics warn, will it actually increase the deficit and fail to control costs that are spiraling out of control? For the motion: Douglas Holtz-Eakin, John Shadegg Against the motion: Jonathan Cohn, Paul Starr Intelligence Squared U.S. brings together the world’s leading authorities for an exciting contest of ideas, wit and persuasion in a series of provocative and timely debates.
