Washington D.C. – Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney, Chair of the Joint Economic Committee (JEC) will convene a hearing to examine the to-be released Census Bureau data examining trends in health insurance coverage, household income, and poverty through 2008.  The hearing entitled, “Income, Poverty, and Health Insurance Coverage:  Assessing Key Census Indicators of Family Well-Being in 2008,” will take place Thursday, September 10, 2009 at 1 p.m. in room 210 of the Cannon House Office Building.  Witnesses will examine trends in health insurance coverage, income, and poverty over the 2000-2008 period, as the economic policies pursued during the previous administration left most families behind and ill-prepared to weather the current recession. The hearing will examine how policies being pursued by Congress and the Obama Administration will work to counter those trends and improve the well-being of families across the country.
