First, as part of our series on health care reform, Bob speaks with David Riemer, the director of the Community Advocates Public Policy Institute in Milwaukee. Riemer has spent much of his career working on health care reform and he is arguing for Congress to model a national health care plan after the state employee model used in Wisconsin. Then, Matthew Aid has been studying the United States government’s most secret agency for the past 20 years. The Secret Sentry: The Untold History of the National Security Agency is the culmination of his research. The book traces the agency from its creation in 1945 to its unprecedented involvement in Afghanistan and Iraq.
