Getting It Done

How Obama and Congress Finally Broke the Stalemate to Make Way for Health Care Reform
Daschle, Thomas (Book - 2010 )
Getting It Done

Item Details

Senator Tom Daschle's narrative of what went on behind the scenes in the making of the new health care legislation delivers a powerful lesson in the workings of American politics. The evolution of health care reform was drawn-out, frustrating, and complicated, but Senator Tom Daschle is the ideal person to recount the process.  His account will guide you through the entire story, from the earliest presidential campaign debates - and his firsthand experiences in the Obama team - through the battles on Capitol Hill to solve our most serious health care problems.  Not simply a book about policy, Daschle's narrative describes in vivid detail how fragilethe support in Congress was at every step of the way, as well as the frantic efforts to design a rescue strategy before time ran out.   Combining his insights as a health care expert and his political expertise, this is the inside story about 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 a dramatic personal story and a remarkable lesson in politics at the highest level.
