In regards to the interview with Michael Steele on the 27 August 2009 show, I listened to the interview and found Michael Steele rude and condescending. He talked over Steve Inskeep who was merely trying to ask him a question. Not only that, he contradicted himself at least once during the interview.
Secondly, NPR is usually known for its even-handedness when it comes to reporting. However, having Michael Steele on one day and Dick Armey on the next to talk about health care reform is only presenting one side of the debate. Neither Armey nor Steele wants health care reform to actively go through. They would rather keep things status quo.
Please consider having the other side on, at the very least in interest of fairness.
