Sen. Romney discusses the future of federal health policy

We were honored to host  Senator Mitt Romney as part of our afternoon keynote at the recent 2020 Utah State of Reform Virtual Health Policy Conference. During a one-on-one conversation with host DJ Wilson, Romney discussed what it’s like to be a member of Congress in 2020, his top concerns for the country, and his views on the future of federal health policy.
Romney led off the conversation with comments on his experience serving as a senator in the current political climate. He says his colleagues get along on a personal level, but “our views on policy are diametrically opposed.” He says the political parties’ shifts to the far right and far left make it difficult to work collaboratively.

When asked about the future of health policy at the federal level, Romney says he anticipates a “significant readjustment” following the presidential election in November.

If President Trump wins re-election, which Romney predicts will happen, he doesn’t anticipate seeing dramatic changes in the health care system. He says people can expect more of the same, but with adjustments on a piecemeal basis.
