Conversation: 'Power, Politics & Universal Health Care'

  • Aired: 01/04/2012

  • Rating: E

His new book, "Power, Politics and Universal Health Care," puts President Obama's historic health care win in historical perspective, showing how his administration narrowly side-stepped a century's worth of past mistakes.
