Nearing the Finish Line?: The Policy & Practice Podcast

From hearings and press conferences in Washington, D.C.

The Senate Finance Committee is expected to vote on its health reform bill this week. Once out of the committee, there will be more merging, amending, and negotiating. And it’s anyone’s guess what will make it into a final package. In this week’s Policy & Practice Podcast, our reporters take a look at what didn’t make it into the Finance Committee’s bill, namely the public option.

And it’s the public option that has filmmaker Michael Moore riled up. Mr. Moore came to Washington last week to promote his latest movie and took time out to threaten congressional Democrats. His message: Include a robust public plan or pay the price at the polls next year.
