Episode Description

Join us on Capital Thinking with Kevin O’Neill this week as Patton Boggs healthcare guru Todd Tuten dissects the legislative effort to overhaul the nation’s healthcare system. A Senate panel rejected a government-run "public" insurance option earlier this week, handing insurers an early victory and setting the stage for a long contentious fight. Most people would not think that a war-torn country like Iraq is the best place for business. But then, most people are not David Tafuri, who spent 15 months in Iraq. Tafuri will share his insights and tips on how businesses can succeed in Iraq. Finally, we discuss the politics behind a sweeping climate bill introduced by Sens. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.), John Kerry (D-Mass.). with Patton Boggs' Jeffrey Turner.
