We are delighted to invite you to an upcoming series on the post-midterm landscape. Sponsored by the Rockefeller Foundation, the Niskanen Social Policy Team has partnered with Public Private Strategies to help funders and others explore how a new political reality will impact four key issue areas: family, employment, health, and business policy.
This four-part webinar series begins Friday, June 3rd, with a panel on family policy–details and registration links are below.
Family Tax Policy
June 3rd at 1:00-2:00 pm ET:
With growing recognition of the financial challenges facing families, panelists will discuss the scope for bipartisanship on issues such as paid family leave and child tax benefits.

Wells King, American Compass
Adrienne Schweer, Bipartisan Policy Center
Patrick Brown, Ethics and Public Policy Center
Employment Tax Policy
June 6th at 12:00-1:00 pm ET:
Panelists will discuss the tax and workforce strategies that can help America’s labor market get back on track, address long-standing challenges such as trade and automation, and win broad political support.
Judy Conti, National Employment Law Project
Matt Darling, Niskanen Center
Jessica Fulton, Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies
Chris Griswold, American Compass

Health Care Tax Policy
June 21st at 1:00-2:00 pm ET:
Some suggest that new majorities in the House and Senate may reverse the health coverage gains and protections for preexisting conditions. At the same time, many argue that the ACA, now 12 years old, has redrawn the battle-lines around health care reform: future reforms will have to meet or exceed the ACA in terms of universal coverage and affordability. Panelists will discuss the prospects for health care reform ranging from incremental to systemic reform.
Chris Pope, Manhattan Institute
Robert Orr, Niskanen Center
Arielle Kane, Progressive Policy Institute
July 13th at 3:00pm-4:00pm ET:
After a decade of stagnant or declining business dynamism, could a new wave of innovation be upon us? And if so, what forms of public investment in science and technology will be necessary to ensure the benefits from economic growth are broadly shared? And how can adjustment in the tax code support the continued growth of America’s small businesses? Panelists will discuss these issues and more, with a focus on areas of potential for bipartisan consensus.
