Inside Deficit Reduction: What Now?

The Budget Control Act of 2011 tasked members of a “Super Committee” to find at least $1.2 trillion in deficit reduction over the next decade. Members did not reach an agreement by the November 23 deadline and as a result automatic spending cuts to defense and entitlement programs are set to kick in beginning in January 2013. Panelists at this briefing discussed the impact the sequester will have on the health care sector and how implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act will be affected.

This briefing was cosponsored by the Alliance for Health Reform, the Kaiser Family Foundation, The Commonwealth Fund, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and The SCAN Foundation.
