New Podcast Episode: The COVID-19 Pandemic’s Impact on Health Insurance Coverage
It’s The AAF Exchange — your source for clear, data-driven insight into today’s economic and domestic policy issues.
In our latest episode, AAF President Douglas Holtz-Eakin discusses how the Supreme Court vacancy left by the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg could affect the future of the Affordable Care Act as well as Congress’s ability to legislate. He breaks down the pandemic’s surprising impact on the rate of health insurance coverage. And he considers what a vaccine rollout could look like along with the steps the federal government can take to ensure that the public is confident in the safety of a vaccine.
