Healthcare and the President!
September 10, 2009
Hosted by Squire Patton Boggs
President Obama rolled the dice on healthcare reform Wednesday night with his joint address to Congress. Healthcare policy attorney Martie Kendrick is our guest to talk about the initial Congressional reactions to the President's speech and the latest details on complex negotiations in the House and Senate to settle on a reform package. The focus on healthcare reform has kept Congress from jumpstarting the next phase of rebuilding the nation's financial regulatory scheme. Financial services policy attorney Micah Green updates progress on Congressional work in this area. The Supreme Court held special arguments Wednesday on the Citizens United campaign finance case that could reshape the political world. Bill McGinley, campaign finance attorney and ExpressAdvocacy.com blogger, joins us to review what points were scored in oral arguments.
