The following quotes from John Kelliher are highlights of the podcast:

On how the economic challenges will distract the administration from healthcare reform: "The deficits and the attempts to deal with the financial sector crisis will distract Congress and the Obama administration away from healthcare. We saw this with the Clinton administration. . .and I think this will happen again," commented Mr. Kelliher.

On what general healthcare reform could look like: "In the state of Massachusetts we have a very good example of the general themes of what they would be attempting to do. . .Unlike Clinton, rather than trying to completely change the delivery system for healthcare. . .they really look to use the existing structure with added carrots and sticks, to take little bits and chunks out of the number of uninsured," stated Mr. Kelliher.
