U.S. Rep. Bob Brady (D-PA 1)
Hour 1

With members of Congress on recess and back in their districts, we ask what kind of reception the big health care legislation they just passed is getting. Joining Marty to talk about the politics and policy is U.S. Rep. BOB BRADY, who’s also the head of Philadelphia’s Democratic Party and the head of the House Administration Committee. The latter job has him in charge of the Capitol Police in Washington DC, working to ensure the safety and security of Congress and the public around Capitol Hill. We’ll also talk to Franklin & Marshall political scientist STEPHEN K. MEDVIC about the reception that Congress is getting and the political climate across the country and the region.
