Quarterly Report

FIRST QUARTER REPORT 2021

Mar 31, 2021

During the first quarter, the Goodman Institute paid special attention to health policy, including identifying Trump administration reforms that need to be made permanent and proposing bipartisan solutions for Obamacare. A new book from the institute explores the need to reform our social insurance programs (including Social Security and Medicare) and a controversial essay asks whether conservatism needs resetting.

FOURTH QUARTER REPORT 2020

Dec 20, 2020

During the fourth quarter, the Goodman Institute succeeded in pulling politicians, think tanks and editorial writers together to endorse a health policy agenda, summarized in our Third Quarter Report. This agenda focuses on many Trump era reforms that were largely ignored in the mainstream media and all too often by the president himself. We also produced a cutting-edge analyses of the Biden/Harris economic plan and the effects of Republican tax reform on Georgia voters.

THIRD QUARTER IN REVIEW 2020

Oct 4, 2020

During the third quarter, we continued to partner with the Heritage Foundation in explaining the Trump administration’s health reforms and the need to make them permanent through congressional legislation. We continued our partnership with the Heartland Institute to publish Health Care News. And we initiated a major study of the Biden/Harris economic plan.

SECOND QUARTER IN REVIEW 2020

Jun 29, 2020

In this quarter we did some remarkable things. We partnered with the Heartland Institute to rescue Heath Care News, an invaluable communications tool in this election year. We completed the arduous task of bringing right-of-center organizations together to endorse health reforms the Trump administration has been implementing for some time. And Prof. Kotlikoff and his colleague have produced first-of-their kind estimates of lifetime marginal tax rates for people of all ages and income levels and the impact of carbon taxation for the current and future generations.

FIRST QUARTER IN REVIEW 2020

Mar 26, 2020

This quarter was dominated by health policy. Obamacare turned age ten. The coronavirus attacked. The goal of the Goodman Institute was to identify and promote core reforms backed by think tanks, advocacy groups, members of Congress and the Trump administration – to give those reforms clarity, voice, intellectual support and leadership.

FOURTH QUARTER REPORT 2019

Dec 31, 2019

Almost alone among U.S. think tanks, the Goodman Institute has long supported allowing employees to own their own health insurance and to be able to take it with them from job to job. Thanks to the Trump administration, millions of workers will have that opportunity beginning this January.

THIRD QUARTER IN REVIEW 2019

Oct 1, 2019

During the third quarter, the Goodman Institute joined with the Heritage Foundation to develop a health reform plan for the Trump administration, developed a solution for surprise medical bills, explained what Republicans and Democrats want to do with Medicare and created a new environmental blog.

SECOND QUARTER IN REVIEW 2019

Jul 1, 2019

In this quarter, the Trump Administration adopted a major Goodman Institute health care reform, our economists produced stunning new evidence on the effects of tax reform, and Republicans on the Hill updated a resolution on pre-existing conditions that we helped prepare last year.

FIRST QUARTER IN REVIEW 2019

Apr 5, 2019

The Goodman Institute is the only right-of-center think tank that has called for major reforms in Medicare, and a number of those reforms are being implemented by the Trump administration. We have also produced the only estimates of the lifetime benefits of tax reform.

FOURTH QUARTER REPORT 2018

Jan 5, 2019

The Goodman Institute, more than any other think tank in the country, made a significant difference in 2018 in two areas: taxes and health care.

THIRD QUARTER IN REVIEW 2018

Sep 30, 2018

In the third quarter of 2018, the Goodman Institute continued to defend the tax reform bill against its critics. We are also continuing to work with members of Congress to find a alternative to Obamacare.

SECOND QUARTER IN REVIEW 2018

Jul 3, 2018

In the second quarter of 2018, the Goodman Institute continued to defend the tax reform bill against its critics. We are also continuing to work with members of Congress to find a replacement to Obamacare before the next election.

FIRST QUARTER IN REVIEW 2018

Mar 30, 2018

In the first quarter of 2018, the Goodman Institute took the lead in defending the tax reform bill against its critics. Throughout 2017 there was a steady drum beat of attack from writers and even many economists who were critical of the reform effort. We expect that to continue. If there is a significant electoral swing in the next two elections and if tax reform is a cause of it, the reform will be in serious jeopardy.

FOURTH QUARTER REPORT 2017

Jan 5, 2018

In 2017, the Goodman Institute took the lead in providing the intellectual basis for congressional efforts to reform the health care system and the tax system. While health care reform is temporarily stalled, tax reform was a significant achievement. This achievement could be undone, however, if we do not successfully defend it in this election year.

THIRD QUARTER IN REVIEW 2017

Oct 10, 2017

During the third quarter, the Goodman Institute went into overdrive to clear the air of fake news on health reform and geared up for a similar battle on tax reform. Goodman Institute president John Goodman and board member Nan Hayworth were especially visible on cable television, defending the Graham/Cassidy/Heller/Johnson Obamacare replacement bill from all manner of unfair attacks.

SECOND QUARTER IN REVIEW 2017

Jul 13, 2017

The Goodman Institute for Public Policy Research is doing things that are not being done by any other organization. We are supplying Congress, the media and the public policy community with the very best advice the scholarly world has to offer on health reform, tax reform and entitlement reform.

FIRST QUARTER IN REVIEW 2017

May 11, 2017

The Goodman Institute for Public Policy Research is doing things that are not being done by any other organization. We are supplying Congress with the very best advice the scholarly world has to offer on health reform and tax reform. If the Trump administration is willing, we can do the same for entitlement reform.
