Political scientist touches on health-care reform

David Kimball, associate professor of political science at the University of Missouri–St. Louis, was quoted in an article about whether the GOP or Democrats will benefit from the passage of health-care reform. The article ran March 22 in the St. Louis Beacon.

In the story, Kimball discussed reasons it took more than a year for the legislation to gain approval.

“One reason it took so long is that (President Barack) Obama left it to Congress to work out the details,” he told the St. Louis Beacon. “He didn’t make a public case until the last two months. Had he done more of that and been more involved in the details earlier, (Congress) would have been able to get this through more quickly and turn its attention to jobs.”
