Senate Committee on Aging Holding Hearing on Medicare Reform

CRFB President Maya MacGuineas and former CBO director and current CRFB board member Douglas Holtz-Eakin will be testifying in front the Senate Special Committee on Aging at a hearing entitled "A Time for Solutions: Finding Consensus in the Medicare Reform Debate." 

This hearing will focus on the various different ways in which Medicare and other federal health programs can be changed, why this is necessary (our fiscal crisis, with health-care being the main driver, of course) and what consensus exists. CRFB has been showing consensus in Medicare, and others in its table of overlapping policies.

The hearing is being webcast on the Senate Aging Committee's website and will start at 2 PM.
