For Better or Worse

The National Health Care Bill

Listen 28 minutes

Will people with disabilities, seniors and low-income
folks benefit if the health care bill is passed?

After nine months of political wrangling and back door
deals, the US congress was set to put a universal national
system for health care insurance in place. Then,
Massachusetts’ voters sent a Republican to congress —
and everything changed.

Cartoon of wheelchair-user surfingAs we linger in the morass
of Congressional
we talk with BOB KAFKA,
a national
organizer for the
grassroots disability organization,

He’ll tell us what to celebrate
if the bill is
and why we can be happy
if it is not.

With an essay by Shelley Berman.
