Dr. Alexander Interviewed on Health Care Process
Thursday, March 18, 2010
The local media reached out to Professor Alexander for his take on the negotiations to pass the Health Care act being debated in the U.S. House of Representatives. Alexander was interviewed by WLIO Lima and told reporters that perhaps the proposed legislation was less radical than its detractors had claimed. He pointed out that large national organizations such as the American Medical Association and the American Association for Retired People had endorsed the plan, and that they would be unlikely to back any plan that would radically change the status quo. Alexander provided a great deal more information than made it to the screen, but his ideas shaped the later content of the 11:00 PM broadcast.
Professor Alexander is a frequent interview subject in the local press and has also moderated election eve symposiums on C SPAN.
