Health IT – New Face of CFPB – The Survival of the Filibuster
July 25, 2013
Hosted by Squire Patton Boggs
On this week’s Capital Thinking, guest host Bret Boyles first speaks with Martie Kendrick for an update on developments in the area of health IT and the health care industry overall. Next, after much political turmoil, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) finally gains a new director. Vince Frillici joins Bret to discuss what we can expect from the agency in the near term. Then, Bob Dove will comment on the role of the filibuster in the United States Senate’s legislative process. Bob will also share his opinion on the filibuster and offer advice to the Senate regarding the parliamentary device intended to provide a balance of power within the government. Finally, back by popular demand, we will bring back Carol Van Cleef’s recent segment on bitcoins. Follow us on Twitter @capitalthinking and tweet your responses.
