While with the South Dakota Bankers Association in August 2009, Dennis McCuistion had the opportunity to speak with a few of the country’s leaders. During part one of this three part interview series, we hear from Congresswoman Stephanie Sandlin, of the U.S. House of Representatives.
To begin this session with Congresswoman Stephanie Sandlin, Dennis McCuistion asks her to explain and clarify the role of a blue dog democrat.* She explains and then expounds on what they are doing to ensure that all the people (including rural communities) are being fairly represented, even if that includes moving across party lines in some cases. She asserts that the primary focus is fiscal responsibility and fiscal health. She continues on to explain the role that they have had thus far in influencing the healthcare debate.
Join us as we hear from Congresswoman Stephanie Sandlin.
