Where experts disagree: A civil discussion about health care in America

    A couple of weeks ago, WHYY’s Chris Satullo asked, “Can we talk about health care without killing each other?” He set out to answer that question with two experts on either side of the Affordable Care Act debate on Thursday night by moderating a discussion at Beth Sholom Congregation in Elkins Park.

    Dubbed the Bernard Wolfman Civil Discourse Project, the public forum was conceived of by Dina Baker, a congregation member who works in the health-care field, to honor her late father.

    Subject experts David Nash of Thomas Jefferson University and Stuart Butler of the Heritage Foundation led a discussion about where the Right and Left agree and disagree and what to do about it.

    More later today from Satullo, but until then, here’s a compilation of tweets from the almost too-civil discussion:
