Two topics on today's Radioactivity: Health care and Pres. Eisenhower's Speech on the Military Industrial Complex01/18/11 Robert Lorei
Radioactivity: Live Call-In (Tuesday) | Listen to this entire show:
Good morning, welcome to Radioactivity. I'm Rob Lorei. Coming up on the first part of today's program we'll discuss Republican efforts to repeal health care reform legislation. The GOP in the House will begin to debate the matter today.
Not all Republicans have opposed health care reform. In a moment we'll hear part of an interview I conducted last April (after passage of the law) with former Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist who told me he supports 80% of the health care reform legislation. I spoke with Sen. Frist via satellite at the University of Florida. The interview was part of an event sponsored by The Graham Center.
Next up, it was 50 years ago yesterday that outgoing President Eisenhower made his farewell address warning of the "military industrial complex." Let's listen back to that speech.
