Watching Obamacare

Next Tuesday, September 14th, at noon, the ObamaCareWatch.org team will be holding its first public event at the National Press Club. Sen. Mike Johanns (R., Neb.) will deliver a keynote address, and my Ethics and Public Policy Center colleague Jim Capretta and Robert Book of the Heritage Foundation will present the results of their new study on the devastating effects of Obamacare on the Medicare Advantage program. The event will be moderated by Bill Kristol, with additional remarks by Doug Holtz-Eakin. Worth your while if you’re in Washington. You can get more details here.
