Healthcare was the first big issued tackled by the Obama administration. Some critics say Obama has bet the mid-term elections on the outcome. What are the the political battles and costly compromises that define the Obama administration's endeavor? What role do powerful interest groups play in the healthcare debate?
KUED presents Frontline "Obama's Deal" airing Tuesday, April 13 at 9:00 p.m., a new investigation that reveals the hand-to-hand combat between the White House, lobbyists and Congress over healthcare reform. Producer Michael Kirk ("Bush's War," "Dreams of Obama," "Inside the Meltdown," "The Warning") provides a sobering exposé of the realities of American politics.
"Obama's Deal" is the first in-depth look at how the Obama administration operates. The report traces the administration from the early positive efforts, through the bitter battles with the Tea Party to the failure in the Massachusetts' Senatorial election.
