Media Advisory: A Conversation with Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour

Washington – Join Mississippi Governor and Republican Governors Association Policy Chairman, Haley Barbour and American Action Forum President Douglas Holtz-Eakin for an open discussion on domestic policy at the National Press Club on Tuesday, October 25. Topics will include the Affordable Care Act, “Super Committee” recommendations and economic growth. Audience questions are encouraged. A continental breakfast will be provided. Space is limited so please RSVP today.


As lawmakers continue to wrestle with a high national unemployment rate, a yawning budget deficit and an unworkable health care law, states are forced to confront the problems Washington ignores. A byproduct of this failure, however, is new and creative solutions at the state-level which become models for future federal policy.

Governor Barbour’s experience working at both the state and federal level gives him a unique perspective, understanding the nuances of federal policy making and the challenges of implementing them in the state. Please join us for a compelling and informative conversation.
