"Affordable Care Act" ...Not the health reform America needs
Health policy and legal experts available in Chicago and Springfield
WHAT: Experts with the Illinois Policy Institute and Liberty Justice Center are available to comment on Thursday's U.S. Supreme Court decision on the Affordable Care Act, commonly referred to as ObamaCare. Experts can speak to what the ruling means for people here in Illinois and how the Supreme Court decision will affect average citizens.
WHERE: The Illinois Policy Institute has spokespeople available in Chicago and Springfield all day Thursday and Friday:
John Tillman, CEO and Ted Dabrowski, Vice President of Policy at Illinois Policy Institute can address how ObamaCare hurts the poorest among us, how the law hurts small businesses and entrepreneurs, and why the law should be thrown out in favor of state-based health care solutions. They can also speak to what good health policy looks like and how states can be laboratories for innovation when it comes to health reform. *Ted Dabrowski can give interviews in Spanish and English.
Peter White and Jacob Huebert, attorneys with the Liberty Justice Center public interest law firm, can break down the legalese and explain what the decision means for average citizens. Why is this law so contentious? What are the legal ramifications if it is upheld and struck down?
Kristina Rasmussen, Executive Vice President and Jonathan Ingram, health care policy analyst at Illinois Policy Institute can address how the ruling will affect Illinois, why ObamaCare is bad public policy and break down what the ruling means for average citizens.
WHEN: Experts are available all day Thursday and Friday.
