Health care reform lost to wider economic concerns?
Two advisors, one from each presidential campaign, talk about why their candidates are not giving up on health care reform despite the current economic crisis. There are big differences between the health care plans of Republican John McCain and Democrat Barack Obama.
- Neera Tanden: Domestic policy advisor for the campaign of Democrat Barack Obama, and one of his advisors on health care.
- Stephen Parente: Associate professor in the Department of Finance in the Carlson School of Management at University of Minnesota. He helped write McCain's health care policy.
