Hopes for the White House health-care summit

School of Management Professor Stephen Davidson, author of “In Urgent Need of Reform: Saving the U.S. Healthcare System” being published this spring, questions whether today’s White House health-care summit will have any lasting political impact.

“Congressional Republicans were advised by their leaders to oppose anything, no matter what compromise plan the Clinton Administration came up with.  Some of those people are in even more senior positions in the party now.  If they have the same attitude now, the summit won’t have any positive effect on them.  But if there are others who are open to considering reform, the summit signals that their ideas would get a fair hearing from the Obama administration.”
