Rep. John Shimkus

Congressman Shimkus, a Collinsville Republican, talks with Jennifer Fuller of WSIU Radio and WSIU-TV's Jak Tichenor about his reasons for voting against President Barack Obama's health care proposal and the GOPs hopes for trying to repeal the law should they win a majority in the mid-term elections. Shimkus will also be asked about federal oversight of the nation's mining industry in light of this week's deadly coal mine explosion in West Virginia, the Toyota recall, new ethanol legislation, and the Federal Communication Commission's new broadband expansion proposal.
