Harry Litman Moderates Internal “Podcast” on Post-election Policy Climate for JHF Board
Harry Litman, JD, Jewish Healthcare Foundation (JHF) Board member, former U.S. District Attorney, law professor, and political commentator, and former Pittsburgher, moderated a panel discussion during JHF's Dec. 5 All Boards meeting. Litman is also the producer and host of the popular podcast "Talking Feds."
Litman facilitated an hour discussion on current policy challenges and changes to the political landscape from the most recent election. The panel included: John Delano, KDKA political analyst and government, political, and economic news reporter who hosts the Sunday Business Page segments for KDKA's weekend news; Steven D. Irwin, Leech Tishman Fuscaldo & Lampl partner, chair of its Government Relations Practice Group, and current chair of Pennsylvania Advisory Committee to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights; Chis Jennings, founder and president of Jennings Policy Strategies Inc. and three decades-long health policy veteran of the White House, Congress, and the private sector.
Panelists commented on the most recent (and even upcoming) elections, issues with polling, health policy, and future anticipated action on policy issues important to JHF. They also took questions from the Board.
"The people here are kind of the first authors of history. This period in some ways seems without precedent in our history and it continues to be a tumultuous time at best," said Litman.
