That would be Richard Foster, chief actuary for the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
He’s the actuary the Bush Administration silenced so it could build support for Medicare Part D, the prescription drug benefit. Foster’s view is here. Rumor has it that his bosses at Health and Human Services squelched this week’s reports on Obamacare until after the vote passed. (I commented on Foster’s report this afternoon.)
The rumormongers should have asked Foster, cuz he says they ain’t true.
