130+ Economists Sign Letter Calling Health ‘Reform’ a Jobs Killer


House Minority Leader Boehner is circulating a letter signed by over 130 economists, addressed to the president and Congress, describing the catastrophic effects of the so-called “reform” to U.S. health care. Both I and my colleague Benjamin Zycher are signatories.

The letter focuses on the avalanche of new taxes and the resulting negative impact on capital investment and job growth. It also emphasizes that the “reform” will increase the cost of health care.
