Threats to Medicare: The Election and the Lame Duck Congress

7:30 p.m.
Beth Israel's Phillips Ambulatory Care Center
2nd Floor Auditorium
10 Union Square East
New York, NY 10003

The structure of Medicare may be put at serious risk following the election. Governor Romney has explicitly called for turning it into a voucher program. If President Obama is re-elected, there are also major risks to the program, some of which may arise as early as the lame duck Congressional session in the fall, if there is an effort to reach a "grand bargain" on the deficit. CEPR Co-Director Dean Baker took part in a forum on the threats Medicare faces post-election and during a lame duck Congress.
