Pushing Limits - For Better Or Worse: The National Health Care Bill

Will people with disabilities, seniors and low-income folks benefit if the health care bill is passed?  After nine months of political wrangling and back door deals, the US congress was set to put a universal national system for health care insurance in place. Then, Massachusetts' voters sent a Republican to congress and everything changed.

As we linger in the morass of Congressional uncertainty, we talk with Bob Kafka, a national organizer for the grassroots disability organization, ADAPT. He'll tell us what to celebrate if the bill is passed, and why we can be happy if it is not.  With an essay by Shelley Berman.  

Hosted by Adrienne Lauby and Ruthanne Shpiner.
