I am pleased to announce the launch this week of what I hope will be an important new resource in the debate over the future of American health care: ObamaCareWatch.org.
Yesterday, the Obama administration embarked on an ambitious effort to again “sell” the new health law to a skeptical public by highlighting the supposed benefits of it in speeches, mailers, and planned advertising campaigns.
ObamaCareWatch.org is aimed at setting the record straight with facts. It will provide, in one convenient and searchable website, all of the most important research, analysis, news, and commentary related to the new health law. Proponents of the new law have claimed that it will produce many positive results for the country. When the new law instead produces precisely the opposite results of what was promised, ObamaCareWatch.org will make that information available to ordinary Americans so they can hold those who sponsored and passed it accountable for what they have done.
ObamaCareWatch.org is sponsored by economics21, an excellent new research institute dedicated to promoting sound economic policies in a rapidly changing global economy. I am pleased to be serving as the project’s director, even as I continue in my role as a Fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center and as a contributing editor to The New Atlantis.
Please go to the new website regularly, spread the word to those who might benefit from visiting it, and sign up for the weekly “ebrief” to get periodic updates with all of the latest information and developments.
