Representative DeLauro also serves as a senior Democrat on the subcommittee responsible for the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration—where she oversees food and drug safety—and on the House Budget Committee.

Jacob Hacker is the Stanley Resor Professor of Political Science and Director of the Institution for Social and Policy Studies at Yale University. Professor Hacker is known for his research and writings regarding health policy, especially his development of the so-called public option. A regular media commentator and policy adviser, he is the author or co-author of five books, numerous journal articles, and a wide range of popular writings on American politics and public policy. His most recent book, written with Paul Pierson, is American Amnesia: How the War on Government Led Us to Forget What Made America Prosper.
