Senate GOP leaders press ahead on a health care reform bill: What's in it, what's not, and will voters like it any better? Then, lessons learned from the Republican victory in a Georgia special election on Tuesday.
Guest Host: Susan Page
Guest host Susan Page speaks with veteran political analyst Norm Ornstein about the attack earlier this week during a GOP baseball practice and the calls for unity from leaders of both parties, and then with Democratic consultant Geoff Garin on what state election results may suggest about our national political trends.
In “From the Archives”, this week’s shootings at a congressional baseball practice called to mind the the 2011 shooting of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. Just like today, that incident sparked a conversation about our coarsening political discourse and what can be done. Diane and a panel discussed calls for a more civil tone in our political debates.
