“Russia and the Domestic Agenda”
July 9, 2009
Hosted by Squire Patton Boggs
While President Obama is in Europe and Africa this week meeting with world leaders, major progress is being made on much of his domestic agenda as Congress returns to Washington for perhaps their most pivotal month of legislative activity this year. Travis Seegmiller joins the show to talk about newly introduced legislation in the House that would create President Obama's new Consumer Financial Protection Agency. Former Ambassador Philip Kaplan is our guest as we talk about the impact of President Obama's visit to Russia where new deals on nuclear proliferation and missile defense masked fundamental disagreements on how to deal with rogue nations like Iran and North Korea. Then, Elizabeth Litten from the law firm of Fox Rothschild is our guest to address some of the misperceptions about healthcare reform, access to care and insurance coverage.
