Debating the President’s Health Care Pitch in Portsmouth
by THE EDITORS
August 17, 2009
When it comes to health care, Americans become very passionate. And when it comes to the rights of the individual – the very foundation of America – we become even more passionate. The current debate over government-run health care is the “proof in the pudding.”
FamilySecurityMatters.org has been riding the health care wave, bringing you the best information we can find on the topic. Our quest to bring you the best analysis of what is really in the bill and who is analyzing it extraordinarily well so that we can help you, the public, understand what’s in store for you continues – especially insofar as how the president is continuing to try to sell it at his town hall meetings.
A little skepticism is healthy, so far as we are concerned. Fortunately for our readers, we came across Keith Hennessey.
Hennessey is the former National Economic Council Director under George W. Bush. Before that, he spent eight years on Capitol Hill as a policy advisor to Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott (R-MS). He was also on the Senate Budget Committee staff for the Chairman, Senator Pete Domenici (R-NM), and for a short time was on the staff of the Bipartisan Commission on Entitlement and Tax Reform, which was co-chaired by Senator Bob Kerrey (D-NE) and Senator Jack Danforth (R-MO). Before that, he designed and tested software for Symantec Corporation. He holds a B.A.S. in math and political science from Stanford, and a Master in Public Policy degree from the Kennedy School at Harvard.
Hennessey has been researching what’s in this health care bill and what Obama has been saying about it – and what’s true and what’s false. For his latest analysis, click here.
