Thomas Miller is a resident fellow at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), where he studies health care policy, including health insurance and market-based alternatives to the Affordable Care Act. 
A former senior health economist for the Joint Economic Committee (JEC) in Congress, Miller was previously a trial attorney, journalist, and sports broadcaster. He is the coauthor of the bestseller “Why ObamaCare Is Wrong For America” (HarperCollins, 2011), the first in-depth examination of the impact of the new health care law.
While at the JEC, Miller organized a number of hearings that focused on reforms in private health care markets, such as information transparency and consumer-driven health care. He has testified before Congress on issues such as the uninsured, health care costs, Medicare prescription drug benefits, health insurance tax credits, genetic information, Social Security, and federal reinsurance of catastrophic events.
Miller has a B.A. in political science from New York University and a J.D. from Duke University School of Law.
