Yesterday President Obama signed historic health care legislation - so, what will it mean for you?
It’s taken – seemingly – forever to get to this point. Now, as we start to grapple with what a new federal health care law will mean, we’ll talk to two people who have spent a great deal of their time on the subject.
Our Democratic political analyst Bill Curry, as you know, has been pushing for health care reform for years – at the state and federal level. He was part of the Clinton White House, so he understands what it means to push for massive changes, and not get there.
We’ll also talk once again with Jacob Hacker, the political scientist who basically came up with the term “Public Option.” With a federal health plan not part of this law, does he think it does enough? We’ll also tackle some of the bill’s specifics, what it will mean politically.
