Two years after President Barack Obama signed his name to landmark health care reform, polls find that millions of Americans disapprove of the law. Driving that opinion in part may be the remarkably unbalanced television advertising around the law, as opponents have outspent supporters by a 3-1 margin since the president signed the Affordable Care Act.

The Good News and Bad News in the President’s Deficit Plan

For too long, Washington's fiscal hawks have co-opted the deficit conversation suggesting the only way to restore our nation's fiscal balance is to slash Social Security and Medicare. At the same time many of these "safety net" opponents were signing pledges to protect tax breaks for millionaires and corporations. That is not fiscal responsibility. Our National Committee members understand this and, thankfully so does our President.

New Research Seniors and Taxpayers Can Gain from Medicare Reforms

The big three entitlement programs - Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security- promise to increase federal spending to unprecedented and unaffordable levels in coming years.
