Weekend Watchdog

Bill Scher

Every Friday in our Weekend Watchdog feature, we post suggested questions for scheduled Sunday guests. You can add your own questions in the comment thread. We’ll also include contact information for the shows, so we can let them know what their viewers want asked.

And on Sunday at 4 PM ET, tune in to Air America Radio’s “Seder on Sundays” program, where I’ll offer the Weekend Watchdog Wrap-Up.

For Newt Gingrich (Fox News Sunday): 64 percent of Americans say our government should guarantee health insurance for all, with 60 percent – including nearly half of Republicans — said they would be willing to pay more in taxes for it.

Sen. Clinton’s health insurance plan would achieve that goal — as would the plans from the other leading Democratic candidates. All would expand the choices Americans have by providing public and private plans, and paying for it in part by rolling back Bush’s tax on those earning $250,000 or $200,000 a year.
