Anyone following the evolution of American health care should join us for this coversation with former Michigan Congressman Bart Stupak--and a look inside the making of the Affordable Care Act. A Q&A and book signing will follow Mr. Stupak's presentation.

Bart Stupak, a nine-term Democratic Congressman from Michigan’s First District, brought two unshakable principles with him to Capitol Hill in 1992: a firm belief in the sanctity of life, and the conviction that health care was a right for all Americans and not a privilege for the fortunate few. Studies indicating that 45,000 Americans died needlessly every year for lack of access to health care inspired Congressman Stupak’s tireless efforts, often at great personal cost, to pass lifesaving legislation while remaining true to his right-to-life principles. 

For All Americans (The Dramatic Story Behind the Stupak Amendment and the Historic Passage of Obamacare) is fascinating front-row seat to the inner workings and behind-the-scenes dealmaking in the US House of Representatives, and a first-person account of the collaboration between President Obama and Bart Stupak’s small but dedicated team of legislators to achieve the historic passage of the Affordable Care Act for all Americans.
