Kennedy-McCain Supporter

Robert Siegel talks with Dylan Malone, a supporter of the Kennedy-McCain bill, whose son was born with brain damage. Malone's health insurance company first agreed to provide half of the nursing care recommended by doctors (eight hours a day, rather than 16), then later backed out of providing any nursing care at all. After former Vice President Al Gore pointed to the Malone's situation in a presidential campaign speech last year, the insurance company agreed once again to cover nursing care for Dylan Malone's son.
