Biography

Amy Goldstein has been a staff writer at The Washington Post for 30 years. She currently covers health-care policy, focusing on the 2010 federal law reshaping the U.S. health care system.

Over the years, she has written widely about social policy issues, including Medicare and Medicaid, Social Security, welfare, housing, and the strains placed on the social safety net by the Great Recession. She also has been a White House correspondent and covered notable news events ranging from the Monica Lewinsky scandal to the Columbine shootings to five of the past six Supreme Court nominations.

Goldstein was part of a team of Washington Post reporters awarded the 2002 Pulitzer Prize for national reporting for the newspaper’s coverage of 9/11 and the government’s response to the attacks. She was also a 2009 Pulitzer Prize finalist for national reporting for an investigative series she co-wrote with her colleague Dana Priest on the medical treatment of immigrants detained by the federal government.

She has been a Nieman Fellow at Harvard University and returned to Cambridge as a fellow at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study to work on a book about the long-term unemployment and decline of the middle class in Janesville, WI, a small industrial city that bears the kind of economic bruises the Great Recession left on communities across the United States.
