Podcast Interview with Senator Orrin Hatch

March 14, 2007

We have posted an interview with U.S. Senator Orrin G. Hatch (R-Utah) as yesterday’s Tax Policy Podcast. Sen. Hatch discusses the benefits of two types of health care reform: health savings accounts and the President’s proposed plan to equalize the tax treatment of people who purchase health insurance on their own and those who receive it through their employers. The Senator addresses several criticisms of these plans and discusses the importance of reform.
