Monumental Issues: Talking Health Policy with Katie Mahoney


Former Managing Editor, Digital Content

We continue our tour of Washington, D.C., where we visit a monument and discuss a monumental issue impacting our economy and the business community.

This time we headed over to the Tidal Basin and the Jefferson Memorial with Katie Mahoney, executive director of Health Policy at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. (Good thing we beat the crowds and this week's rush for the cherry blossoms.) The topic: employer-sponsored health insurance and workplace wellness.

Katie notes: “Today, 175 million Americans enjoy employee-sponsored insurance and 80 percent of those that are offered it take it. Why? Because employers are at the forefront of creating and developing innovative benefits and innovative services that are available to their employees.”

At the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, we continue working to ensure policies that create jobs, foster growth and expand opportunity for every community and every American.

Check out the first installment of Monumental Issues, where Caroline Harris, the U.S. Chamber’s chief tax counsel, visited Iwo Jima and discussed the need for comprehensive tax reform.
