Elected Mock Interview

Select an elected state or federal official (legislator) and examine this legislator’s position on a current health care bill of your choice. Following the assignment guidelines below, develop an interview paper as if you were going to interview the legislator. Please note: A current health bill is a bill that is actively going through the legislative process and has not become law yet. Your mock interview paper should include: -A description of the legislator’s background and history of political involvement -A detailed summary of the legislator’s current political involvement, constituent groups, number of terms in office, committee responsibilities, and other leadership experiences -A description of the legislator’s current policy agenda or judicial interest -3-4 key interview questions that relate to the health care bill (legislation) you have chosen -Mock answers to your interview questions. Investigate the answers to your interview questions by looking at the legislator’s website, calling the legislator’s office and speaking with a member of the staff, and/or looking for information and quotes that relate to the legislator’s position on the legislation -Critical insights, analysis, and personal reflection -APA format (6th ed.), proper grammar, and references as appropriate Source: http://www.ontheissues.org/Social/Marco_Rubio_Health_Care.htm
