Goodman was featured three times on air and posted online as part of a FOX News Channel series on projected health care cost hikes for young adults that would result from Senate reforms. FOX Business News reports that "health reform is not dead," although it's going to take common sense to make it happen, in this story that includes NCPA input on the benefits of buying health insurance across state lines. The Wall Street Journal Report told their listeners on January 18 that millions of people are making poor decisions because they are panicking on how the recession will affect their nest eggs, according to a study by NCPA Senior Policy Analyst Pamela Villarreal. NCPA Distinguished Fellow Robert McTeer discussed Ben Bernanke's second term on CNBC's Closing Bell on January 22. NCPA Legislative Director Brian Williams appeared on The Mike Gallagher Show in January with a Capitol Hill update on health care. On January 25, McTeer told CNBC's The Call that Senator Reid did a disservice to the Federal Reserve.

A January 7 editorial in The Wall Street Journal on new tax hikes implemented in 2010 said, "A study by the NCPA found that about 90% of the benefits from capital investment go to workers in the form of higher wages due to increased productivity." On January 4, NCPA Senior Fellow H. Sterling Burnett told Environmental Protection Magazine that nuclear power is one of the safest and most reliable forms of energy available and it emits no greenhouse gases. Goodman appeared on The Mike Gallagher Show in January with a health care update. Burnett told the Dallas Morning News on January 6 that "the perception is that Washington knows best; they know what the problems are in regard to pollution and the rubes out in Middle America don't."
