Heartland’s Peter Ferrara was a guest this morning on AM 560’s Chicago Morning Answer with Dan Proft and Amy Jacobson talking about the stalled effort to repeal and replace Obamacare.
Peter, a senior fellow for entitlement and budget policy at The Heartland Institute, served in the White House Office of Policy Development under President Reagan and as associate deputy attorney general of the United States under President George H.W. Bush. He is a graduate of Harvard College and Harvard Law School.
Peter is author of several books, including The Obamacare Disaster — making him just about the perfect guest — as well as President Obama’s Tax Piracy, and America’s Ticking Bankruptcy Bomb. Ferrara’s latest book (2015) is Power to the People: The New Road to Freedom and Prosperity for the Poor, Seniors, and Those Most in Need of the World’s Best Health Care.
Peter is also the lead author of the soon-to-come book “Roadmap to the 21st Century,” including this section on health care and social security. Listen to the interview, which AM 560 immediately posted on YouTube, in the player above.
