'Mini Darth Vader' fights for children's health care

Child actor Max Page became famous for his playful portrayal of a mini Darth Vader in a Volkswagen Superbowl commercial.  Although lively and generally healthy, he has had several pace makers to manage a congenital heart condition.

Dr. Sanjay Gupta sat down with Max to talk with him about pending cuts in Medicaid that benefit kids in need of specialized pediatric medical care.

Dr. Gupta joins American Morning today to tell the young boy's story and to explain why Max is soon headed to Capitol Hill to lobby with the National Association of Children’s Hospitals.
