Radioactivity: Live Call-In (Tuesday) | Listen to this entire show:
Good afternoon, welcome to Radioactivity. I'm Rob Lorei. Today we'll hear from two doctors who generally support the health care reform legislation making its way through Congress.
The AP is reporting that Independent Connecticut Senator Joe Lieberman says he expects to support the Democrats' health care legislation as long as any government-run insurance plan stays out of the bill. To ensure Lieberman's support, Senate leaders said yesterday they were backing away from a medicare expansion that Lieberman opposed. They had already dropped a full-blown government insurance program.
