The Politics of Health Insurance for Children

Hosted by

Democrats and some Republicans want to expand health insurance for children, paid for by increasing the tax on tobacco. President Bush has threatened a veto. Is it a step toward universal healthcare? Would it be "socialized medicine?" What would it mean for comprehensive healthcare reform? Also, on Capitol Hill, Donald Rumsfeld's in the hot seat over the cover-up in the death of Pat Tillman and, on Reporter's Notebook, Saudi Arabia says it might talk to Israel and open an embassy in Iraq.
