Jake Tapper here, substituting for George who is taking a break this week.
It’s been another summer week of heated debate over health care reform. The White House has launched a campaign to take on the critics and this Sunday, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, the top Cabinet official in charge of health care reform is our guest. Also, Democratic Senator Arlen Specter, who was caught in the town hall crossfire this week, debates Republican Orrin Hatch over health care. Is there any chance after what has happened this summer that Democrats and Republicans can reach any agreement on health care?
And a great roundtable this week. Ed Gillespie, former White House Counselor to President Bush, Democratic strategist and ABC contributor Donna Brazile, Ron Brownstein of the National Journal and the Washington Post’s Anne Kornblut, here to talk about health care, Hillary Clinton’s trip to Africa and remembering Eunice Kennedy Shriver.
All on This Week Sunday. We’ll see you then.
