After Massachusetts voters handed State Senator Scott Brown an upset victory over his Democratic opponent for the U.S. Senate seat once held by Ted Kennedy, Democratic leaders in Washington began scrambling to figure out how to get health reform passed with the loss of their supermajority.

Meanwhile, there’s a more pressing issue for physicians: the perpetually looming 21% reduction in Medicare fees, now due to take place in March. They once again rallied, urging Congress to address the issue.

These stories and more are in this week’s Policy & Practice Podcast, brought to you on the eve of President Obama’s State of the Union speech, where we all hope to find out more about where he plans to take health reform now.
