STREAMING LIVE: Tom Daschle & Leo Hindery on Health Care, the American Worker, and U.S. Competitiveness

-


On Wednesday at 4:15 pm EST until about 5:30 pm, I will be chairing a meeting at the New America Foundation featuring former Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle and former AT&T Broadband CEO and Obama economic advisor Leo Hindery.
The session will focus on the state of America’s health care mess and how rising costs are undermining American economic competitiveness and throwing even more hurdles in the way of America’s workers and middle class. In part, Daschle will reflect on his book, Critical: What We Can Do About the Health-Care Crisis.
Daschle is rumored to be on the short list of potential candidates being considered by Obama to be his vice-presidential running mate. If the VP slot doesn’t work out, Daschle is the front-runner to serve as Barack Obama’s chief of staff. Leo Hindery is co-chairing a newly created “Smart Globalization Initiative” at the New America Foundation.
More later.

    Tom Daschle, whose wife is one of the bigeest lobbyists in town, the man who rolled out the red carpet for Bushco.’s endless wars, as Chief of Staff? New kind of politics, eh?
    Who could have imagined?
    Here’s guy who could have helped Hillary get Universal Health Care going. If you are really sick, he’ll tell to you to buy his book. That should make someone feel better….
    Vichy Democrats.
