@ Brookings Podcast: The Battle Over Health Care; Secretary of State Clinton in Africa

August 7, 2009

This week @ Brookings focuses on health care and healthy political ties. Members of Congress are back in their districts this month to speak with constituents about health care reform. Senior Fellow Sarah Binder says when legislators return to D.C. in a few weeks, the pressure to settle the issue will be a priority for congressional leadership and poses risks for incumbents. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton traveled to Africa—Senior Fellow Ernest Aryeetey said her trip sent a powerful message to governments and people across the continent.
