Dem. Rep. Jim Clyburn on Ft. Hood, Health Care Plan

Friday, November 06, 2009


Yesterday, we spoke with House Minority Whip Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.,) about the Republican plan for health care reform. Today we talk with House Majority Whip Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.), who has just one more day to line up votes for the House Democrats' health care reform plan. Ahead of Saturday's expected vote, he joins us for a look at what's in and what's out in the Democrats' bill.

Rep. Clyburn also gives us his thoughts on the shooting in Fort Hood, Texas. (click through for a full interview transcript)

Yeserday, I predicted that Rep. Clyburn would not get anything like the adversarial questioning that The Takeaway's hosts posed in the companion interview of Republican Rep. Eric Cantor. I'll let you decide whether the two interviews, together, expose John Hockenberry's political prejudices.
