From Hurricanes to Health Care: What's Government For?Download audio (MP3)
Hitting in the final week of a presidential campaign, Hurricane Sandy stirred up the debate on an already divisive topic: the proper size and purpose of government. Mitt Romney and President Obama offer distinct and divergent visions for the role of government. We'll contemplate their competing worldviews with former Labor Secretary Robert Reich, and Stephen Moore of the Wall Street Journal editorial page.
