DALLAS, June 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Nationally renowned health care policy expert  John Goodman and former Delaware Governor Pete du Pont today announced their departure from the National Center for Policy Analysis (NCPA).  

Goodman founded the organization 31 years ago and du Pont joined the board 20 years ago. Together they built the organization and helped achieve some remarkable policy accomplishments:

  • Because off the NCPA's idea of Heath Savings Accounts, more than 30 million people are managing some of their own health care dollars.
  • Because of the NCPA's concept of the Roth IRA, more than $250 Billion in assets will never be taxed again.
  • Because of another NCPA initiative, 78 million baby boomers will be able to reach the retirement age and keep on working without losing Social Security benefits.
  • Because of an NCPA/Brookings Institution effort millions of workers are being automatically enrolled in 401(k) plans.

"Together, Governor du Pont and I established the National Center for Policy Analysis and built it into one of the nation's leading think tanks.  We are proud of the many policy achievements that we accomplished over the years and of our efforts to promote private free market alternatives to government regulation and control," said Goodman.  "I want to thank the outstanding NCPA staff for their hard work and dedication and wish them the best of luck in the future.  I look forward to the exciting opportunities that lie ahead."

"It has been an honor to work with John and build NCPA into a nationally recognized public policy leader.  John is one of the foremost experts in health care policy in America, and I look forward to working with him again," said Governor du Pont.  "While it is unfortunate that our time at NCPA ended in a disagreement with the organization's board, we look forward to the future and what it holds."
