Senator and CEO Wolf to testify in Washington on health care reform’s economic impact
Massachusetts State Senator and Cape Air CEO Dan Wolf will testify in the nation’s capital on Tuesday, July 10, to share his experiences as a successful job creator who supports both the Massachusetts Health Care Reform Act, and the national Affordable Care Act.
Wolf has been invited to testify to the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.
“I’m honored to be able to offer my perspective as an entrepreneur whose company, Cape Air, now employs close to 1000 people,” said Senator Wolf. “I’m pleased to report that Massachusetts health care reform, in many ways a template for national reform, has not stifled job creation or the state’s economic growth.”
The session, "Examining the Impact of Obamacare on Job Creators and the Economy," will begin at 1:30 pm in room 2154 of the Rayburn Office Building on Capitol Hill. It will follow a morning session titled, “Examining the Impact of Obamacare on Doctors and Patients.”
The committee expects to hear testimony from five witnesses, four chosen by the Republican majority on the committee, one by the Democratic minority. Senator Wolf will be joined by Michael Frederick from MCM Composites in Wisconsin; Dr. John Goodman from the National Center for Policy Analysis; Mary Miller, CEO of a janitorial service company Jancoa; and Jamie Richardson, Vice President of the White Castle restaurant chain.
This will be the committee’s first round of hearings on the Affordable Care Act since the United States Supreme Court affirmed the legislation’s legality.
