Jim Jaffe

For 16 years, Jim Jaffe worked for House Democrats who served on the Ways and Means Committee, apprenticing with Representatives Green, Gibbons and Gephardt before (having run out of Democratis whose names started with G) being hired by Chairman Dan Rostenkowski where Jim was the staff person/henchman (depending on your perspective) assigned to dealing with the media. Since his retirement, he has worked around town (IRS, Georgetown Law, Powell Tate, Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, Employee Benefit Research Institute) before launching a freelance career that includes blogging on health issues at Centeredpolitics.com, and infrequently on the Huffington Post.
