I don’t think the policy will be finalized until next month.
That will be two weeks before the next presidential election.
If you ask me, the president should have put a moratorium on the policy.
He needs to be able to see the evidence before making any final decisions.
He has a moral obligation to release his final version, and we should respect that.
This is a long-overdue reform, and he has to show the public he’s done something about the opioid epidemic, and this is the way to do it.
