Senator Daschle's insider account of the health care legislation: a dramatic personal story and a powerful lesson in the workings of American politicsOne of our biggest political issues for our current administration has been health care legislation. The evolution of "Obamacare" was drawn-out, frustrating, and complicated to understand, but Tom Daschle is the perfect person to explain. Combining his insight as a health care expert and his political expertise, this is the insider story of how the new legislation came together: from the persistence of President Obama to the subsequent efforts--and counter efforts--within the Senate and the House. In Daschle's hands this becomes both a dramatic personal story and a remarkable lesson in political science at the highest level.
