Talk Radio’s Cain Headliner for Obamacare Event

Washington, D.C., Aug. 10, 2010 – Popular Georgia talk radio host Herman Cain will address a luncheon crowd on the topic “America Is Not Going Down” as the featured speaker Wednesday, Aug. 18, at an event in Atlanta sponsored by local supporters of The Heritage Foundation.

The program at the Westin Buckhead, 3391 Peachtree Rd. NE, will open at 10 a.m. with a panel discussion on “Obamacare” including three policy experts from Heritage, the leading Washington think tank.

Michael Franc , Matthew Spalding and Robert Moffit are slated to address the new health care law’s consequences for doctors and seniors, the role of federalism, and repeal of the legislation, enacted by Congress and signed by President Obama in March. A reception at 11:15 will be followed by lunch and Cain’s remarks.

The event’s sponsor, the Atlanta Committee for Heritage, is a group of local business and civic leaders who support the think tank’s conservative public policy solutions. About 11,000 of Heritage’s more than 684,000 members reside in the Atlanta region. Ernest and Jan Taylor are co-chairmen of the committee; Vivian DuBose, Barb Van Andel-Gaby and Rick Gaby are honorary chairs.

Cain , host of “The Herman Cain Show” and president and CEO of THE New Voice Inc., previously was chairman and CEO of Godfather’s Pizza. He is also a Fox News contributor.

In a recent column on taxes, Cain writes: “All tax increases are bad, but there are some that are just plain unfair and punitive for no logical reason. The marriage penalty, the small business penalty, the retirement penalty, and the death penalty are in that category.”

Tickets are $30 for Heritage members, $60 for non-members and $20 for students with proper ID. Online registration is at For details, call Catherine Pepper at (202) 608-1524 or e-mail
