ICYMI: What Does the Harris Pick Mean for Health Policy in a Biden Administration?
In today’s edition of the Weekly Checkup, AAF’s Director of Health Care Policy Christopher Holt considers what the selection of Sen. Kamala Harris as vice presidential candidate means for health policy in a hypothetical Biden Administration. Holt concludes:
Harris’s demonstrated willingness to move to meet the Democratic base, paired with Biden’s similar disposition, should be cause for concern for anyone who opposes a government takeover of health care. Biden-Harris might not lead the charge on progressive health reforms, but they would willingly go along for the ride.
