SPN News: Goldwater Institute update (Sep/Oct 2011)

November 18, 2014

Goldwater Institute senior attorney Diane Cohen recently testified before Congress about the federal health care law’s Independent Payment Advisory Board, which is the subject of Goldwater’s court challenge to Obamacare. Cohen called IPAB “independent in the worst sense of the word: it is independent of Congress, independent of the president, independent of the judiciary, and independent of the will of the American people.” You can watch some of her testimony at /dianecohenipabtestimony. In August, the Institute released its ninth annual Legislative Report Card, which examines 375 legislative votes from this year’s legislative session and ranks every Arizona lawmaker on their commitment to liberty. The report card is the most comprehensive state report of its kind. For information on the methodology used and how you can apply it to your state, contact Goldwater Institute at
