Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi famously said that we would have to pass health care reform to find out what’s in it. Well, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act has been law for four months, and we are beginning to learn more about what it will mean for the federal budget, insurance premiums, businesses, workers, doctors, and patients. So far, the news has not been good — the law’s cost and insurance premiums are expected to rise, while many of the promised reforms may turn out to be less than expected. Michael Tanner, a senior fellow at the Cato Institute and author of the new study, “Bad Medicine: The Real Costs and Consequences of the New Health Care Law,” will discuss these and related issues.
Featuring Mike German, Senior Policy Counsel, American Civil Liberties Union; Eileen Larence, Director of Homeland Security and Justice Issues, Government Accountability Office; Michael Price, Counsel, Liberty & National Security Program, Brennan Center for Justice; and Jim Harper, Director of Information Policy Studies, Cato Institute.
