Polls consistently find that health care is foremost on voters’ minds, and as the coming campaign season begins to heat up, so does the debate over dramatic change in the American health care system. Carey Goldberg, editor of CommonHealth, hosts an evening of lively discussion and painless learning about what’s likely to be a central question in the coming months: What should the country do — and what can it realistically do — about the health-care system? Does it need evolution or revolution? And for those who favor a single-payer system, what road may lie ahead?
