Who Spoke the Most at Health Care Summit?
March 2, 2010
Did you know that for congressional hearings and programs such as the White House Health Care Summit that you can quickly tell how long the participants spoke? On the program page, look under the people tag. All the people who participated are arranged by the amount of time that they spoke. Next to each name is the total amount of time that they spoke during the event.
President Obama spoke the most, about an hour during the morning and also the afternoon sessions. He was followed by Sen. Alexander (R-TN) who spoke for fourteen minutes, and then by Majority Leader Reid (D-NV) and Speaker Pelosi (D-CA) who spoke for about eight minutes each. In the afternoon session, Vice President Biden was second with an eight minute speech.
You can use this feature on congressional hearings as well.
