Tom Daschle - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Page 2 of 9 „ 7 External links Spouse(s) Linda Hall Religion Roman Catholicism [note 1]Family backgroundDaschle was born in Aberdeen, South Dakota, to Elizabeth B. Meier and Sebastian C. Daschle. Hispaternal grandparents were ethnic Germans from Russia.[4] Daschle grew up in a working-class RomanCatholic family as the eldest of four brothers.[5] He became the first person in his family to graduatefrom college when he earned a political science degree from South Dakota State University in 1969.While attending South Dakota State University, Daschle became a brother of Alpha Phi Omega. From1969 to 1972, Daschle served in the United States Air Force as an intelligence officer with the StrategicAir Command.[6]In the mid-1970s Daschle was an aide to then Senator James Abourezk of South Dakota.Daschle has been married to Linda Hall, Miss Kansas for 1976, since 1984, one year after his marriageto his first wife, Laurie, ended in divorce.[7] Hall was acting administrator of the Federal Aviation , , gAdministration in the Clinton administration; she is now a Washington lobbyist. Her lobbying clients y ghave included American Airlines, Lockheed Martin, and Boeing, Senate lobbying records show.[8][9]Daschle has three children from his first marriage: Kelly, Nathan, and Lindsay. His son, Nathan, isExecutive Director of the Democratic Governors Association.[10]Career in the House of RepresentativesIn 1978, Daschle was elected to the United States House of Representatives, winning the race by amargin of 139 votes [11], following a recount, out of more than 129,000 votes cast. Daschle served fourterms in the House of Representatives and quickly became a part of the Democratic leadership.At the 1980 Democratic National Convention Congressman Daschle received 10 (0.30%)[12] delegatevotes for Vice President of the United States. Although he was not a candidate, Daschle (along withothers) received votes against incumbent Walter Mondale, who was renominated easily.Career in the SenateIn 1986, Daschle was elected to the Senate in a close victory over incumbent Republican James Abdnor,becoming the nations 1,776th senator. In his first year, he was appointed to the Finance Committee. In1994, he was chosen by his colleagues to succeed the retiring Senator George Mitchell as DemocraticMinority Leader. In the history of the Senate, only Lyndon B. Johnson had served fewer years beforebeing elected to lead his party. In addition to the Minority Leaders post, Daschle also served as amember of the U.S. Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry. South Dakotans re-elected Daschle to the Senate by overwhelming margins in 1998. At various points in his career, heserved on the Veterans Affairs, Indian Affairs, Finance and Ethics Committees.When the 107th Congress commenced on January 3, 2001, the Senate was evenly divided—that is, therewere 50 Democrats and 50 Republicans. Outgoing Vice President Al Gore acted in his constitutionalcapacity as ex officio President of the Senate, and used his tie-breaking vote to give the Democrats themajority in that chamber. For the next two weeks, Daschle served as Senate Majority Leader. Then,upon the commencement of the Bush administration on January 20, 2001, Dick Cheney became 11/19/2009
  3. 3. Tom Daschle - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Page 3 of 9President of the Senate, thereby returning Democrats to the minority in that body; Daschle reverted tothe position of Senate Minority Leader. However, on June 6, 2001, Senator Jim Jeffords of Vermontannounced in that he was leaving the Senate Republican caucus to become an independent and to caucuswith Democrats;[13] this once again returned control of the body to the Democrats and Daschle againbecame Majority Leader.Democratic losses in the November 2002 elections returned the party to the minority in the Senate inJanuary 2003 and Daschle once more reverted to being Minority Leader.Daschle recounted his Senate experiences from 2001 to 2003 in his first book, Like No Other Time: The107th Congress and the Two Years That Changed America Forever, published in 2003.[14]Anthrax case in 2001In October 2001, while he was the Senate Majority Leader, Daschles office received a letter containinganthrax, becoming a target of the 2001 anthrax attacks.[15] Many of his staffers were confirmed to havebeen exposed,[15] as well as several of Sen. Russ Feingolds staffers and Capitol police officers.[16]Views on abortionIn 2003, Roman Catholic Bishop Robert Carlson wrote Senator Daschle regarding the Senators viewson abortion, in light of legislation Congress was considering that would ban an undefined set of late-term procedures called "partial-birth abortion" by those opposed to them. Carlson reportedly toldSenator Daschle that his stance on such issues were in conflict with Roman Catholic teaching, and hetold Daschle that he should no longer identify himself as a Catholic.[17] Daschle had previouslydescribed Bishop Carlson as being "more identified with the radical right than with thoughtful religiousleadership."[17] A mixed voting record on abortion-related issues led the pro-choice organizationNARAL to give Daschle a 50 percent vote rating.[18] In 1999 and 2003, Daschle voted in favor of theban on so-called "partial-birth abortion",[19][20] and supported legislation making it a crime to harm afetus when someone attacks a pregnant woman.[21] (Investigators into the 2001 anthrax attacks, whichincluded Senator Daschles Capitol Hill office, suspect that alleged anthrax mailer Bruce Ivins may havechosen to target Daschle over his views on abortion, although Ivinss lawyer disputed this allegedmotive.[22])2004 Senate electionIn the 2004 Congressional elections, John Thune prevailed by a narrow 50.5%-49.4% margin, whichwas 4,508 votes[23]. Daschles defeat marked the first time that a Senate party leader had lost a seat since1952.[24] Senate majority Leader Bill Frist visited South Dakota to campaign for Thune.Throughout the campaign, Thune — along with Frist, President George W. Bush, and Vice PresidentCheney — frequently accused Daschle of being the "chief obstructionist" of Bushs agenda and chargedhim with using filibusters to block confirmation of several of Bushs nominees. The Republicancandidate also drove home his strong support for the war. In a nationally televised debate on NBCsMeet the Press, Thune accused Daschle of "emboldening the enemy" in his skepticism of the Iraq war.[25]When the race began in early 2004, Daschle led by 7 points in January and February. By May, his lead 11/19/2009

Tom Daschle - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Page 4 of 9minimized to just 2 points and into the summer polls showed a varying number of trends: either Daschleheld a slim 1 to 2 point lead or Thune held a slim 1 to 2 point lead or the race was dead even.Throughout September, Daschle led Thune by margins of 2 to 5 percent while during the entire monthof October into the November 2 election, most polls showed that Thune and Daschle were dead even,usually tied 49-49 among likely voters. Some polls showed either Thune or Daschle leading byextremely slim margins.Post-Senate careerCareer and public serviceFollowing his election defeat, Daschle took a position with the g , plobbying arm of the K Street law firm Alston & Bird. Because he was y gpprohibited by law from lobbying for one year after leaving the Senate,[26] he instead worked as a "special policy adviser" for the firm.[27][28]Alston & Birds health care lobbying clients include CVS Caremark,the National Association for Home Care and Hospice, AbbottLaboratories and HealthSouth.[8] The firm was paid $5.8 million pbetween January and September 2008 to represent companies and y p p passociations before Congress and the executive branch, with 60 percentof that money coming from the health industry.[9] Daschle wasrecruited by the former Republican Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole.[29] Daschles salary from Alston & Bird for the year 2008 was Official Senate portrait yreportedly $2 million.[30] mDaschle was also a senior fellow at the Center for American Progress. In addition, he served as NationalCo-Chair of ONE Vote ‘08 ( initiative of, along with former Senator Bill Frist. He and (an g), gformer Senators George Mitchell, Bob Dole, and Howard Baker formed the Bipartisan Policy Center,dedicated to finding bipartisan solutions for policy disputes.[6]In late September 2005, Daschle caught the attention of the media by reactivating his political actioncommittee, changing its name from DASHPAC to New Leadership for America PAC and procuring aspeaking slot at the Iowa Democratic Partys annual Jefferson-Jackson Day dinner. He has continued tokeep a relatively high profile among Democratic interest groups. These moves were interpreted by themedia as an exploration of a potential 2008 Presidential candidacy. On December 2, 2006, announced hewould not run for President in 2008.[31]In an appearance on Meet the Press on February 12, 2006, former Senator Daschle endorsed acontroversial warrantless surveillance program conducted by the National Security Agency (NSA);Daschle explained that he had been briefed on the program while he was the Democratic leader in theSenate.[32]Obama campaignOn February 21, 2007, the Associated Press reported that Daschle, after y , , p ,ruling out a p g presidential bid of his own in December 2006, had thrown ,his support behind Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois for the 2008 presidential election, saying that Obama 11/19/2009

Tom Daschle - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Page 5 of 9"personifies the future of Democratic leadership in our country."[33] [Daschle exited the Senate just as Obama entered in 2004 and suggestedthat Obama take on some of his staffers.[34] These included Daschles [34]outgoing chief-of-staff Pete Rouse who helped to create a two year plan g g pin the Senate that would fast-track Obama for the presidential t pnomination. Daschle himself told Obama in 2006 that "windows ofopportunity for running for the presidency close quickly. And that he pp y g p y q yshouldnt assume, if he passes up this window, that there will be Daschle speaks during theanother."

His selection was formally announced at a news conferencewith Obama on December 11, 2008.[2]Some organizations objected to Daschles selection, arguing that his g j , g gwork at Alston & Bird was tantamount to lobbying and therefore his y gselection violated Obamas p promise to keep special interests out of the p pWhite House. According to Ellen Miller, executive director of the g , Daschle, standing with then- President-elect Barack Obama,Sunlight Foundation, Daschle technically complies with the transition g , y p speaks to reporters after therules against lobbyists but "many power brokers never register as p announcement of his selectionlobbyists, but they are every bit as powerful".[37] Stephanie Cutter, a y , y y p [37] p , to be Obamas nominee for thespokeswoman for the Obama transition, responded that Daschles work p , p position of Secretary of Health"does not represent a bar to his service in the transition" since "he was p and Human Services.not a lobbyist, and he will recuse himself from any work that presents a y , (December 11, 2008)conflict of interest".[37] [3When Daschle was officially nominated for his Cabinet position on January 20, 2009,[38] confirmationby the Senate was required. The Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP) Committee helda confirmation hearing for Mr. Daschle on January 8, 2009.[38][39] A second Senate committee, theFinance Committee, also traditionally reviews HHS Secretary nominees; the committee discussed hisnomination behind closed doors on February 2, 2009.[40][41]Withdrawal 11/19/2009
  6. 6. Tom Daschle - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Page 6 of 9On January 30, 2009, it was reported that Daschles friendship and business partnership withbusinessman Leo Hindery could cause problems for Daschles Senate confirmation. Daschle has been apaid consultant and advisor to Hinderys InterMedia Partners since 2005, during which time he receivedfrom Hindery access to a limousine and chauffeur. Daschle reportedly did not declare this service on hisannual tax forms as required by law. A spokeswoman for Daschle said that he "simply and probablynaively" considered the use of the car and driver "a generous offer" from Hindery, "a longtime friend".[30][40][42][43] Daschle told the Senate Finance Committee that in June 2008—just as he was letting thepress know he would like to be HHS secretary in an Obama administration[36] -- that "something madehim think that the car service might be taxable" and he began seeking to remedy the situation.[44]Daschle reportedly also did not pay taxes on an additional $83,333 that he earned as a consultant toInterMedia Partners in 2007; this was discovered by Senator Daschles accountant in December 2008.[44] According to ABC News, Daschle also took tax deductions for $14,963 in donations that he madebetween 2005 and 2007 to charitable organizations that did not meet the requirements for being taxdeductible.[45]The former Senator paid the three years of owed taxes and interest—an amount totaling $140,167—inJanuary 2009,[42][43][44][46] but still reportedly owed "Medicare taxes equal to 2.9 percent" of the valueof the car service he received, amounting to "thousands of dollars in additional unpaid taxes".[47]On Tuesday, February 3, 2009, Daschle withdrew his nomination,[48] saying that he did not wish to be a"distraction" to the Obama agenda.[3] He was forced to withdraw because, even though he had asufficient number of Democratic votes for nomination, he became an untenable political liability for thePresident.[48]Health policyDaschle co-wrote the 2008 book Critical: What We Can Do About the Health-Care Crisis.[49] He andhis co-authors point out that "most of the world’s highest-ranking health-care systems employ some kindof single-payer strategy - that is, the government, directly or through insurers, is responsible for payingdoctors, hospitals, and other health-care providers". They argue that a single-payer approach is simple,equitable, provides everyone with the same benefits, and saves billions of dollars through economies ofscale and simplified administration. They concede that implementing a single-payer system in theUnited States would be "politically problematic" even though some polls show more satisfaction withthe single-payer Medicare system than private insurance,[50] and that it would be socialized medicine.A key element of the single-payer plan that Daschle and his co-authors propose in the book is a new"Federal Health Board" that would establish the framework and fill in the details. The board wouldsomehow be simultaneously "insulated from political pressure" and "accountable to elected officials andthe American people". The board would "promote high-value medical care by recommending coverageof those drugs and procedures backed by solid evidence".[51] This proposal has been criticized byconservatives and libertarians who argue that such a board will lead to rationing of health care,[52][53]and by progressives who believe the board will, as one writer put it, "get defanged by lobbyistsimmediately".[54]One of Daschles co-authors, Jeanne Lambrew, had been slated before his withdrawal to serve as hisdeputy in the White House Office of Health Reform.[53] 11/19/2009
