Henry Waxman

Chairman, Waxman Strategies

Rep. Henry Waxman is one of the most effective legislators of the last 40 years, with health care among his central concerns. During his time in Congress, Waxman used legislative tools to unmask the tobacco industry after years of deception and authored the Affordable Care Act, which has helped 20 million more Americans get health insurance. The Hatch-Waxman Act helped create the generic drug industry, while the Orphan Drug Act incentivized the growth of an industry that has given hope to the millions of Americans afflicted with rare diseases. Evident in all of Waxman’s work is his commitment to concrete solutions that transform people’s lives for the better. His tenacity has earned him widespread recognition from journalists, fellow elected officials, and President Obama, who described him as “one of the most accomplished legislators of this or any era.”
