Rep. Joseph Cao talks health care vote and song parodies

We write a lot of songs. But it's not very often the subject of those songs is willing to sit down with us and talk about the points we raised in verse.

Then again, Congressman Anh "Joseph" Cao isn't your average person. He's a first term Republican representative hailing from a very Dem-friendly district. He's also the lone Republican that said "yes" to the House health care reform bill.

Last week we commemorated his bold decision in a song called "The Ballad of Joe Cao." This week he joins us for a conversation about that song.
