Kathryn Nix Biography

Title:
Research Assistant at Heritage Foundation's Center for Health Policy Studies
Position:
Con to the question "Is the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) Good for America?"
Reasoning:

“President Obama recently signed gargantuan health care legislation into law that will have major ramifications for every man, woman, and child in the United States. This newly enacted law originates from the Senate health care bill… and a sidecar reconciliation bill that originated in the House. Between these two bills are countless provisions that grow federal spending, increase burdensome taxes, and put federal rules and regulations between Americans and control over their health care.”
