En todo el mundo se ha homenajeado al senador Ted Kennedy, el "león liberal", que fue un defensor clave de la reforma del sistema de servicios de salud


Escuche/Vea/Lea (en inglés)

El miércoles se honró la memoria del fallecido senador Ted Kennedy en todo el país, y a lo largo y ancho del mundo, horas después de su muerte a la edad de 77 años. Escuchamos los homenajes del presidente Obama y del vicepresidente Joe Biden y emitimos fragmentos de discursos de Kennedy en los que habla sobre la reforma del sistema de salud, elegida por él como la causa a la que dedicaría su vida.
