ObamaCare, RomneyCare and Presidential Politics

Hosted by

Healthcare reform is being used as a campaign issue against President Obama and against Republican challenger, Mitt Romney. Obama's plan is only partially in effect. On this archived edition of To the Point, what's the history of the plan Romney established five years ago when he was governor of Massachusetts? (Since we first broadcast this program in July, the US Supreme Court has agreed to hear challenges to the Obama healthcare plan.) Also, the worst predictions for 2011, and that familiar background music in political campaign commercials.
