How to Profit From the War on Cancer
Greene is a veteran of the war on cancer, a role she’s used to playing in Washington.
In 2009, she was the first woman to chair the committee that led the charge to repeal the 2003 National Cancer Act, which banned the use of federal funds for the treatment of cancer and other illnesses.
In 2010, she served on the Joint Select Committee on the President’s FY2019 Budget.
During her tenure on the committee, she championed a series of health-care reforms and helped develop the National Health Security Strategy.
As a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, she pushed to cut the US’s reliance on foreign aid, as well as the use and abuse of drugs and medical devices.
She also authored the Medicare for All Act, an ambitious plan to improve health coverage for all Americans.
“I think it’s a pretty amazing thing that the United States government, under the leadership of the president, is working on the most comprehensive, progressive health care reform in the history of the United [States],” Greene told Business Insider.
“And we’re all going to have to be on board.
We’re not going to be able to do it alone.”
