This week’s NAHU Healthcare Happy Hour podcast takes an inside look at Tuesday’s primary election results, which saw generational changes in Democratic politics with the unexpected ouster of a key Congressional leader by a socialist Democrat campaigning on single-payer. NAHU’s Vice President of Government Affairs Marcy M. Buckner and Vice Presidents of Congressional Affairs John Greene and Chris Hartmann join this week’s episode to discuss the implications of this election and what it could mean for the prospects of single-payer moving through Congress as a new generation of Democrats takes office. They also review a gubernatorial primary that saw a single-payer supporting Democrat advance, the Utah Senate primary and a heated Republicans primary in New York that was previewed in last week’s HUPAC Roundup. The podcast also includes an update on last week’s association health plan final rule and when to expect the forthcoming short-term plan rule.
