It’s said that the more things change, the more they remain the same. That could certainly be said about the upcoming 2020 US presidential election. Just as it was in the last election cycle, healthcare remains the number-one voting concern for voters who see out-of-control drug prices, diminishing health-insurance benefits, and rising healthcare premiums as threats to their wallets—if not their livelihoods. Of course, there are no easy answers from a policy perspective. Every one of the ...Learn More
