H.R. 2‘s Five-Year Cost Examined in Latest Taxpayer‘s Tab

by Dan Barrett / /

The National Taxpayers Union Foundation starts off 2011 right with an analysis by Senior Policy Analyst Demian Brady on the 112th Congress’ most talked about piece of legislation yet. The Congressional Budget Office has already released two preliminary reports on H.R. 2, the Repealing the Job-Killing Health Care Law Act, but questions remain as to the budgetary impact of repealing the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010. NTUF has laid out the costs and savings associated with such a repeal so that everyone can be on the same page.

Also included in the Tab are details of the National Taxpayers Union coverage of the upcoming President’s State of the Union Address, scheduled for Tuesday, January 25th. NTU will once again open a chat room to anyone wishing to share their opinions on the Administration’s accomplishments so far, the agenda the President outlines in the speech, and any other taxpayer-related items. NTU’s Facebook and blog,, pages will also be buzzing with posts and comments, updated throughout the night by policy experts, advocates, and everyday citizens. @NTU and @NTUF on Twitter will also be tweeting developments as they happen using the hashtags #NTUSOTU and #SOTU.
