Budget Deficits and the Soaring Cost of Health Care
October 15, 2007
The Brookings Institute recently co-sponsored Opportunity 08 with the New Hampshire Institute of Politics. The forum examined key domestic issues facing presidential candidates in the New Hampshire Primary, including health care and the federal budget.
Former senator Warren Rudman was joined by expert panelists from the New Hampshire Institute of Politics, including Jennifer Donahue, senior advisor for political affairs, and Jennifer Lucas, assistant professor of Politics. Panelists from Washington, D.C., included Brookings president and former Clinton Deputy Secretary of State Strobe Talbott; former Center for Medicare and FDA Administrator Mark McClellan; and former presidential advisor and Opportunity 08 co-chair Tom Donilon.
Video and audio coverage of the forum is available for download through the Opportunity 08 Web site.
