California Health Care Foundation (CHCF), a nonprofit philanthropy organization focused on improving access to health care for low-income California residents, published an interview with Waxman Strategies Chairman Henry Waxman on the changing political landscape of health care reform. Since the start of his political career, former Representative Waxman has championed health policy initiatives to expand access to health care for all, most recently serving as an architect for the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
In the current political climate, health care is predicted to be one of the most important issues to voters in the upcoming election and a growing number of policy fixes to the nation’s health care system have been endorsed on and off campaign trails. While some policy ideas have gained traction, Waxman explains the barriers that must be overcome to truly achieve universal health coverage. As one of the most influential legislators of modern time, Waxman understands the importance of bipartisanship and making an impact on the lives of everyday Americans. During the interview, Waxman recounts his time in Congress to provide insights on the future of health policy and the role health care is anticipated to play in the upcoming elections.
