Speakers examined the policy and political implications of the Affordable Care Act — the two-year-old health reform law — and potential further action by the Supreme Court, Congress and New York State policymakers. Institute Fellow Richard Kirsch, author of the book Fighting For Our Health, launched the forum with a discussion of the politics surrounding the passage of the act two years ago. Attorney Henry M. Greenberg, shareholder at Greenberg Traurig LLP, outlined the implications of possible decisions the U.S. Supreme Court could make as it considers the constitutionality of one of the act's key provisions. James R. Knickman, president of the New York State Health Foundation, talked about the impact of those decisions on New York State.
