The 2000 Elections and Their Effect on the Healthcare Safety Net

The 2000 elections could have a profound impact on the healthcare safety net. This session hears the views of nationally known figures in health policy and politics on how they evaluate the effect of the 2000 elections, held the week prior to the session, on the healthcare safety net. The session's focus will be on an analysis of the role of health care issues on the election outcomes, and a discussion of the likely impact of those outcomes on future health care policy development
