In Case You Missed It...


This week at CBPP, we focused on health care, poverty and inequality, and Social Security.

  • On health care, Jesse Cross-Call marked Alaska becoming the 29th state (plus the District of Columbia) to expand Medicaid as part of health reform.
  • On poverty and inequality, we issued a new chart book on the accomplishments of the safety net, which Danilo Trisi highlighted.
  • On Social Security, Kathleen Romig warned that a Disability Insurance benefit offset could harm beneficiaries and discourage work.
