SFR's Julia Goldberg, Zane Fischer, Dave Maass and Corey Pein just had a sit-down interview with Santa Fe's man in Washington, US Rep. Ben Ray Lujan. Look for our entire discussion next week. In the meantime, it seems timely to excerpt and post the audio from the portion of the interview dealing with health care reform.
Trust me, listening to our interview is more fun than going to a town hall. Enjoy.
"Bingaman may be the prime example of the way some Senate Democrats seem to have approached the healthcare debate this summer: count votes first, figure out what should be in the bill later. And while you're counting, take the most pessimistic view possible."
"What's mysterious about Bingaman's decision to join the negotiations is how badly New Mexico needs help getting its citizens -- his constituents -- health insurance."
