Description

This segment from the March 5, 2010, episode of the series “Louisiana: The State We’re In” features Shauna Sanford’s interview with Congressman Charles Boustany on the ongoing debate over health care reform. Congressman Boustany discusses: his participation in the White House Health Care Summit; his belief that the current reform bill does not bring down the costs of the health care system; his support of making incremental changes to the system instead of a massive overhaul; and the agreement between both sides on the need for health insurance reform.
