Episode Description

The battle lines for healthcare reform are being drawn this week as House and Senate Democrats finally introduce the details of their plans for legislation that could pass this summer or fall. We bring you comprehensive coverage of what's in the various proposals, what it means for you as an employer or employee, and the impact it has on American business, our economy, and the political climate. Our guests include policy experts from Patton Boggs LLP as well as Bara Vaida, a healthcare reporter from the National Journal. Then, we are joined by attorney Harry Silver to talk about how the economic stimulus bill is spurring changes involving whistleblowers and legal cases under the False Claims Act. Finally, this weekend in Washington features the Duke Ellington Jazz Festival, an outstanding celebration of music and culture that is distinctly American. The Festival's President Charlie Fishman joins us to talk about the event's positive impact on the D.C. community.
