Part II: Interview with Lee Hamilton

Part II: Interview with Lee Hamilton

Photo:

This week, IU’s Center on Congress is commemorating its first 10 years. Former Congressman Lee Hamilton helped establish the educational cooperative shortly after leaving Capitol Hill after 34 years representing southern Indiana. In addition to the Center on Congress, Hamilton was also tapped by President Bush to co-chair the 9/11 Commission and the Iraq Study Group. WFIU’s Daniel Robison sat down with Hamilton recently, and in the final except from the interview, the conversation turned to health insurance reform. Hamilton worked on previous efforts to grant access to insurance to increasing numbers of Americans, from Medicare and Medicaid in the 1960s to President Clinton’s failed universal initiative in 1994.

Daniel Robison

Daniel started as WFIU's Assistant News Director in July 2008. He graduated with a B.A. in history in 2007 and earned an M.A. in journalism two years later. Daniel hosts Ask the Mayor weekly and the occasional Noon Edition. He also hosts Morning Edition on Thursdays, sleepily. Daniel's beats include everything News Director Stan Jastrzebski wants him to cover. And it feels strange to type biography of myself in the third person like this. So that's that.
