In a video news report from Charlotte, N.C., Modern Healthcare News Editor Gregg Blesch hit the Democrats' pre-convention street festival looking for signals of how the party will frame its defense of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and Medicare after taking a rhetorical beating in Tampa, Fla., last week.
