How Legislative Giants Might Get Health Care Done

Friday, September 18, 2009

The national uproar surrounding the effort to reform health care has us wondering: How did anyone ever get changes to health care passed? And what lessons can be learned from the notable failures (*cough* Clinton *cough*)? Political consultant Bob Shrum, former senior advisor to Democratic presidential hopefuls Sen. John Kerry and Vice President Al Gore as well as former speechwriter for Sen. Ted Kennedy, gives us a look at the legislative magic of LBJ's Medicaid bill and how he might get health care reform done today.
