Airing on Wednesday, June 24, 2015: Senate is expected to clear fast-track authority legislation and send it to the president today. Big labor has gotten the blame or credit, for tough opposition against the Trans-Pacific Partnership. The question is: how might they influence the trade deal going forward? Plus, a mega-merger in Europe may seem far away until you realize what it could mean for what you pay for food in America. More on that. And when it comes to providing social services as a way to head off health costs, it’s not one-size-fits-all. It’s one-size-fits-one. We dig into the type of high-intensity interventions that make a difference in the lives of complicated patients.
