Capitol Hill Book Forum

Rep. Tom Price, MD, and Sen. John Barrasso joined us yesterday for our Capitol Hill book launch, hosted by AEI. All four co-authors spoke to a full room of Congressional aides about Why ObamaCare Is Wrong for America. Rep. Price said “this book is so incredibly important” and described how useful a tool it is to anyone trying to learn what was in the health legislation that passed a year ago. Watch the video below to hear Rep. Price’s remarks and the great presentations by our panel of co-authors.

7 Questions with co-author Bob Moffit

The Foundry recently interviewed co-author Robert E. Moffit about Why ObamaCare Is Wrong for America. Here’s an excerpt:

Q: The book gives the facts in clear language, yet there’s a lot to get through. Why should busy American families care about a complex law passed in far-away Washington?

Moffit: This law guarantees that Washington is not far away at all but deeply involved in your personal life. The law will dictate what kind of health plan you have, what medical benefits and treatments you will have, what you will pay in new taxes, what it will mean for your employer and your compensation, and what it will mean for your doctor in his medical practice. Moreover, many decisions that will affect you and your family will be made not by Members of Congress but by bureaucrats you will never know and never meet.

Book Launch and Webcast

Why ObamaCare Is Wrong for America was launched this week with a burst of media activity and a terrific event at the National Press Club in Washington, DC. The webcast gives a good overview of the book from the four authors, and you’ll hear a terrific introduction from Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol, who led off our event yesterday. “I’m such a fan of this book,” he said. “It’s really an excellent statement, I think, an important statement, of the case against ObamaCare — which I think is the correct case in understanding ObamaCare. And it also suggests the direction one should go once it’s repealed.”
