The costs of protecting 800 American jobs - Keith Hennessey
However well-intentioned, President-elect Trump’s new policy will do far more harm than good. I hope he instead embraces free trade and competition and that he stops trying to tell individual American business leaders how to run their companies. He can best strengthen the American economy by developing broad-based neutral policies that create favorable economic conditions and allow smart business leaders to expand, hire, and make the American economy grow.

Why do so many Americans pay no income taxes? | KeithHennessey.com
"If you wanted to work within the current income tax system and reverse some of this trend, broadening the income-taxpaying base, you’d be hard pressed to get a big effect just by raising the bottom rates. To affect millions of people you’d need to either scale back EITC or the per-child tax credit. I think both are highly unlikely."

Which is the decade of profligacy? | KeithHennessey.com
"President Obama’s proposed deficits over the eight-year period FY 2009-2017 are 5.9% of GDP, the light blue bar. That’s more than twice as large as the Bush nine year 2.7% average, and almost three times as large as the Bush eight year 2.0% average."

Misreading the economy | KeithHennessey.com
"I agree with the Vice President that they misestimated where the light blue line would be. In addition, I think the stimulus is having no measurable effect on the U.S. economy right now. The stimulus law was pooly designed so that the bulk of the economic effect does not occur until 2010."

Demographics is a bigger problem than health care costs | KeithHennessey.com
"Director Orszag is correct that rising per-capita health spending is a key driver of our long-term fiscal problems. But he overstates his case by ignoring the other driver of federal spending growth, demographics. We need to address both. We need health care reform that will slow the growth of per capita health spending. And we need to change the promises made under Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid to adjust for a rapidly aging U.S. population."

The President overpromises on keeping your health insurance | KeithHennessey.com
"The President overpromised. So far the best he can deliver is, “If you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan, as long as you’re not one of the 10 million people whose employer will decide to stop offering you health insurance through your job.” I think that loses some of its rhetorical punch."

CBO scores the Kennedy-Dodd bill | KeithHennessey.com
"The Congressional Budget Office has released a preliminary estimate ("score") of the draft Kennedy-Dodd health care bill. Some in the press are reporting that this is a "$1 trillion bill." This poorly explains the true budgetary impact of the bill for several reasons. The bill would increase spending by more than $1.3 trillion (that’s "thirteen hundred billion dollars") over ten years, and even that understates the impact because the bill phases in over the first five years."

KeithHennessey.com » Third party payment in health care (part 3): Technology drives cost growth
"The hidden nature of employer-provided health insurance and the tax subsidy for that insurance distort people’s decisions so that they purchase health insurance with low deductibles and high premiums. This encourages us to use lots of health care without too much regard for the cost of that care."

KeithHennessey.com » Third party payment in health care (part 2)
"There is a broad and bipartisan policy consensus that the tax treatment of employer-provided health insurance is both unfair to those who choose higher wages and less expensive health insurance policies, and unfair to those who are not fortunate enough to get health insurance through their job. It is also inefficient, in that it subsidizes more costly health insurance plans at the expense of higher wages."`
