Healthcare remains a topic of interest within our country. While some are very happy with the Affordable Care Act, others believe it to be a step back in how we approach this challenge. But all too often, the discussion seems to focus more on who is going to pay for coverage rather than the actual care itself and the processes on how we deliver it. Join us for this discussion with Mr. John Médaille, noted author and distributist, and Dr. Matthew Loftus as we discuss approaching the healthcare challenge in different ways. Specifically, we will discuss an article written by Mr. Medaille titled Distributism and the Healthcare System and a presentation given by Dr. Loftus to the ASP Chapter in Maryland titled "Creating a Just and Good Healthcare System."
John Médaille is a businessman in Irving, Texas, and also an Instructor in Theology at the University of Dallas, where he teaches a unique course on the Social Encyclicals for Business Students. He is the author of The Vocation of Business: Social Justice in the Marketplace and Toward a Truly Free Market: A Distributist Perspective on the Role of Government, Taxes, Health Care, Deficits, and More (Culture of Enterprise). He writes at The Imaginative Conservative and Front Porch Republic.
