    No issue vexes American politics more than health-care policy. Veteran political insider Mike Murphy analyzes how—from the health-care battles of the Clinton Administration to Obamacare and the current war over its repeal—health-care policy has become the new third rail of American politics. He’ll look at how both parties struggle to navigate the reality of health-care policy, as well as how the changing demographics and the growing technology revolution that hospitals, pharma, and insurers face is both an opportunity and a challenge as congressional and administration leaders struggle to create real, lasting health-care reform. A longtime adviser to presidential, senatorial, and gubernatorial campaigns, Murphy knows how politics really works. And as a consultant to health-care providers, he understands the challenges facing every part of the industry. An entertaining, ideologically balanced pundit, Murphy’s funny and insightful style will both entertain and inform audiences about what he believes is the most important domestic issue of the next decade.
