On today’s Caffeinated Thoughts Podcast, host Shane Vander Hart discusses with Chris Jacobs President Donald Trump’s recent healthcare executive order, as well as, the deal that was made between U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-TN) and U.S. Senator Patty Murray (D-WA) to address issues with the individual health insurance market.

Chris Jacobs, the Founder and CEO of Juniper Research Group, is a policy writer and analyst based in Washington, DC. He holds over a decade of policy experience in a variety of roles on and off Capitol Hill. Chris previously worked as a Senior Policy Analyst for the Heritage Foundation and the Joint Economic Committee’s Senate Republican staff.

Before that, he worked as a Policy Advisor for the House Republican Conference under then-Chairman Mike Pence during the debate surrounding the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, and as a Health Policy Analyst for the Senate Republican Policy Committee during the first two years of the law’s implementation. He has taught part-time on health policy at The American University.
