    First on FBN: Sen. Kent Conrad Questions Medicare Expansion

    Senator Kent Conrad, D-North Dakota, was the first to float health care co-ops instead of the government-run public option.  His idea wasn’t fully adopted or accepted by either the House or the Senate, but his reservations about a public insurance option were taken to heart as the Senate abandoned the concept.

    Now, while he supports the Senate bill, he expressed reservations about the idea to include people ages 55 and older to add to the Medicare rolls.  Right now, the entry age is 65 and the system is already severely stressed.  In a First on Fox Business interview today on Countdown to the Closing Bell, he told me why. 

    He’s a smart centrist and I’d love for you to listen to his reasoning.  Watch the clip below.


    Show gets 2 no-shows

    The Boston Globe (Boston, MA) January 8, 1999 | Jim Greenidge, Globe Staff It’s a shame Patriots Scott Zolak and Ted Johnson didn’t make their scheduled appearance on “Tuesday Night Football” on New England Cable News earlier this week along with WBCN color commentator Gino Cappelletti.

    After Sunday’s playoff loss in Jacksonville, the players said they didn’t want to relive the disappointing conclusion.

    The players, in fact, didn’t even notify the station that they weren’t going to appear, but instead relayed the word through Cappelletti. There’s really nothing to complain about with Johnson not making this season’s last airing, though, since he didn’t play against Jacksonville due to a torn biceps. But Zolak, the starting quarterback in the game, should have appeared. So Ron Hobson of the Patriot Ledger joined Cappelletti and anchor Kristen Mastroianni. If you recall, last season’s final “Tuesday Night” telecast was one of the best as fullback Sam Gash, knowing that he wouldn’t be with the Patriots the next season, discussed coach Pete Carroll and his lack of playing time. Show must go on During the season Channel 4 had “Patriots Game Day,” but now that the team has been eliminated, the show will go on with a new name — “NFL Game Day,” at the same 11:30 a.m. time. Bob Lobel will anchor the 30-minute program with Steve Burton at the Meadowlands for Jets-Jaguars . Bob Neumeier and Pete Brock will join Lobel in studio. The final “NFL Game Day” will be Jan. 17 prior to the AFC Championship Game. Dafoe gets the call Bruins goaltender Byron Dafoe will appear on ESPN2’s “NHL Tonight” Tuesday at 11:30 . . . Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino will be on with WEEI’s Eddie Andelman and Dale Arnold Wednesday from noon-1 p.m. to discuss the proposal for a new Fenway Park . . . With the condensed NBA schedule, as well as Hockey East action, Sean Grande, the Minnesota Timberwolves’ TV play-by-play voice, has a busy winter ahead. “This NBA schedule will be a lot more complicated, so I’m going to be spending a lot less time at home,” Grande said. “I’m pleasantly surprised we’re having the NBA season, to the point where I ran out of logical reasons to have one.”. . . WEEI’s Ted Sarandis had harsh words Tuesday for a caller who said Carroll should be fired but didn’t have a replacement in mind, calling the caller an “idiot” . . . Fox Sports has two classic Celtics games on tap Wednesday at 7 p.m., Games 5 and 7 of the 1984 finals against the Lakers . . .

Boeings' take off of the 787 today! I watched the Dreamliner take off on FBN. Those who bad mouth it for being late may have a point. HOWEVER; Nearly three years in the making, but if they have made it correct, they will have a winner!
