CBO Director Releases Study on Rising Cost of Health Care

On Nov. 13, 2007, Maya MacGuineas, director of the Fiscal Policy Program at the New America Foundation and President of the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, hosted an event featuring Dr. Peter Orszag, director of the Congressional Budget Office. At the event, Orszag released a CBO paper entitled “The Long-Term Outlook for Health Care Spending.” This paper precedes the regular release of the long-term budget outlook, of which health care is a major component.
