Baronnelle Stutzman

How is the socialized medicine system that is the VA (that was the blueprint for ObamaCare) dealing with some care deficiencies? Leaning on the private sector, of course.

WalMart’s CEO is challenging Congress to raise the minimum wage. Why doesn’t he just do it himself rather than try to get Congress to make him? The answer is to stifle competition.

And it looks like the Supreme Court is going to have to rule on religious freedom pretty soon. Another private business is being sued for not participating in a same-sex wedding, and no, it has demonstrably nothing to do with not serving gays.

How can we get health care costs down?

I have a story for both cat lovers and health care cost enthusiasts. Really? You’ll hear about trying to care for a sick cat shows how the free market can reduce those health care costs.

Blanca was about to lose her house after her husband died. Hear about how she recovered from that, how she took steps to ensure her financial stability, and how ironic her solution was.

Enjoying Democrat privilege

Listener Mark has a better suggestion than the REINS Act for reducing the tentacles of the bureaucratic state; scrap it.

Have you noticed a difference in how Democrats and the media treat similar scandals regarding the two parties? I have, and here’s the latest example.

Baby Thomas was born recently to a father who finds amazing healing from him and a reason to live. Listen in to understand why.

“Free” health care for NYC?

Listener Barb sent me an article showing that the IRS, as tireless as they are collecting money, seems to be asleep when it comes to giving out your tax money to illegal immigrants.

New York City is going to try an experiment with “free” health care. That doesn’t seem very surprising. What is surprising is what they predict it will cost.

And listener “OhioHistorian” has an opinion on my story on the Scouts BSA from last episode.

Telling a great story

Is it OK to rape if the culture you come from has normalized it?

Why is Havana crumbling? What are the costs, and is it affecting their great (according to Michael Moore) health care?

And is depicting bullying necessary when telling an anti-bullying story? Some people don’t think so. Let’s let Rudolph demonstrate why it is. Merry Christmas!

Alfie Evans, off life support

Alfie Evans, like Charlie Gard before him, has lost his case against the British National Health “Service” and was given a death sentence. Rather harsh for an almost-2-year-old, and rather ironic for a socialized medicine system that sells itself as creating better health outcomes. When you replace individual choice with a bureaucracy, this is what you get.

Also, states are running out of money because of 2 large line items in their budgets that are political lightening rods. So when they’re in debt, that have to cut other places, like education and infrastructure.What are those line items?

Reconsider this, Martin Shkreli

In a “Reconsider This” segment, I give you an update on the case of Martin Shkreli, the guy who bought the rights to Daraprim and then jacked up the price. What’s happened to him lately?

And Vic from Memphis calls the voicemail feedback hotline! In response to my despondency over the thought that ObamaCare is forever, he tries to life my spirits. Let’s see how well he does, or even if my spirits can be lifted.

What did ObamaCare really do to our insurance premiums?

When given examples of people whose health insurance premiums have greatly increased after the poorly-named “Affordable Care Act”, ACA advocates have been able to respond that those are cherry-picked cases, or that premiums were increasing before the ACA and would have increased anyway.

That was then, this is now.

Bermuda has paved the way in the same-sex marriage debate, starting with government that is  actually representative of the people.

Consumer confidence is up. Way up. How much? Take a listen.

The worst-kept secret in Hollywood

Hollywood was shaken up with allegations of the sexual harassment of Harvey Weinstein. Well, they knew about it, for years, so it doesn’t seem like it was shaken all that much. Stirred, perhaps. Maybe he could have learned something from Mike Pence.

The UK medical system had a crisis of care this summer, but it’s a crisis that it usually sees in winter. If they are this bad off already this year, will they be able to survive the winter? And yet, it’s a crisis coming to a country near you (i.e. the USA) if we don’t get out from under our attempt at socialized medicine.
