Primary Care Physicians Are Leaving Medicare

08/21/2012 10:30
by Devon Carlin   Washington, DC - Physicians are fleeing Medicare, and primary care physicians most of all, says a just-released paper by David Hogberg, Ph.D. for the National Center for Public Policy Research. Furthermore, action to reform Medicare to address the problem must be taken soon if American seniors and future retirees are to maintain meaningful access these critical doctors. Dr. Hogberg is Washington Correspondent for Investor's Business Daily and a former health care policy analyst for the National Center for Public Policy Research. His new paper, "The Next Exodus: Primary-Care Physicians and Medicare," examines the problem, its causes, and a proposed solution to...

State Corruption Led to Dismissal of PP Charges

by Phill Kline   Close to eight years after former Kansas Attorney General Phill Kline first sought subpoenas for Planned Parenthood records, Planned Parenthood is free from criminal charges.   Kline's evidence revealed that during a time that the abortion provider performed hundreds of abortions on children in 2003 and 2004 that Planned Parenthood only reported one case of child molestation to state authorities.  The evidence also demonstrated illegal late-term abortion.   Two judges reviewed Kline's evidence and found probable cause to believe that Planned Parenthood committed 107 crimes, including 23 felonies.  Yet, none of these charges will ever reach...

by Devon Carlin   Washington, DC - Legal experts with the National Center for Public Policy Research, home of the Voter Identification Task Force, are lauding Commonwealth Court Judge Robert Simpson's decision to uphold Pennsylvania's voter ID law that will protect all Pennsylvanians from voter fraud and will result in just and free future elections. "Today is a victory for free elections and voter integrity," said National Center General Counsel Justin Danhof. "Voting is a privilege that many Americans hold sacrosanct. Now Pennsylvania voters can be assured that their votes will not be stolen, and can be confident that election results are fair and accurate." Judge...

Heartland Events

As a candidate for president in 2016, Donald Trump unveiled his America First Energy Plan—a bold proposal to transform the United States beyond mere energy independence. His goal was to make America a global energy power again, and that’s exactly what’s happening. Trump has already turned back years of Barack Obama’s anti-energy policies, causing the United States to once again emerge as a global energy power. This is an amazing turn of events—one that would have been impossible had Hillary Clinton won the 2016 election, and still remarkable under Trump.


You must join us for The Heartland Institute’s America First Energy Conference to celebrate these accomplishments and learn more about what the future holds. We’ll be gathering in Houston, Texas at the J.W. Marriott Hotel on Thursday, November 9, 2017.


This conference will bring together the country’s greatest energy policy experts, as well as key players in the industry, to discuss how we’re making American energy great again. Will you join us in the heart of America’s energy and refinery industry for this timely and informative event?




Heartland’s America First Energy Conference will feature more than two dozen speakers presenting on eight panels and three plenary sessions. We expect hundreds of people to attend, and we are aiming to attract state legislators, think tank leaders, private sector government relations and policy analysts, and Heartland supporters like you.


The goals of this event are to:

  • Turn state legislators and state think tank leaders and policy analysts into advocates for key elements of the Trump administration’s America First Energy Plan.
  • Persuade civic and business leaders to publicly endorse the plan and back away from the anti-energy stances they adopted during the Obama years.
  • Generate national and international media attention for the plan.
  • To build popular support for implementing the plan at the national and state levels.

If you’ve ever been to one of Heartland’s International Conferences on Climate Change, you know our events drill down into serious policy. At the America First Energy Conference, we plan to examine – one year and one day after Trump’s shocking Election Day victory – the following:

  • Where does Trump’s America First Energy Plan stand?
  • How much progress has been made in implementing it, and what remains to be done?
  • What scientific and economic evidence is there the plan is putting the nation on the right path—either for economic growth, environmental protection, or both?

The event program is still coming together, but it will include prominent elected officials (including a member or two from Trump’s administration) and leaders from America’s energy industry. The panel discussions will address:

  • Energy and Prosperity
  • The Cost of Excessive Regulation
  • The Shale Oil and Gas Revolution
  • Energy and Agriculture
  • The Future of Coal
  • National Security and Energy Policy
  • Protecting Human Health
  • Protecting the Environment

There’s no doubt the election of Donald Trump as president of the United States has created a unique opportunity to fundamentally transform U.S. climate and energy policies. Trump’s America First Energy Plan lays out the rationale for and important first steps of that transition—and Heartland’s research and outreach has helped to inform that plan. Come to Houston on November 9 and be a part of America’s energy revolution!


Tickets for the event are $349 and include breakfast, lunch, and dinner. We expect a full house for this important conference, so register online today! If you have any questions, contact The Heartland Institute’s Events Manager Nikki Comerford at or 312/377-4000.
