Regardless, though, we wanted to check in on what politicians are saying about health care with Kaiser Health News correspondent Julie Rovner, who acknowledges that candidates this year aren’t really health care-focused, but she reminds us that it’s still an important topic.
“Health care is always going to be an issue in a presidential campaign if the economy is, because it’s kind of a proxy for people’s economic anxiety,” says Rovner.
Rovner spoke with The Pulse host Maiken Scott about the health care policy differences between the candidates."
