Dave’s got Flowers on Healthcare, Travis on Aging, CLTP, and Shane on Flowers
Thursday’s Morning Zone is packed with great guests and topics. Join Host Dave Chaffin as he talks with:
7:07 AM MDT: Margaret Flowers, Congressional fellow, organizer with the National Occupation of Washington, D.C…Dr. Flowers will talk with us about a recent letter published by the New York Times, the former editor of the New England Journal of Medicine, Dr. Arnold Relman, notes that their coverage of the debate about a health insurance mandate didn’t “mention an important new argument against the Affordable Care Act’s mandated purchase of private insurance, the key issue before the Supreme Court.”Last month, an amicus brief was filed by 50 doctors and two nonprofit organizations arguing that Congress could avoid a mandate by legislating a national single-payer system that provides nearly universal insurance coverage.”Congress has already created two limited single-payer systems — Medicare and the veterans’ health system — and no legal barriers prevent doing more. Since a mandate isn’t necessary for Congress to exercise its legitimate role in regulating health insurance, there is no justification under the Constitution’s ‘necessary and proper’ clause for such a legislative requirement.”

“The 39 Steps” was adapted from a novel written in 1930 that Alfred Hitchcock turned into one of his earlier movies in 1935. In 2005, a British group took the film script and turned it into a very funny Theatrical production, with four actors playing the roles of more than 30 characters as they brought film to stage. This is one show the folks of Cheyenne should not miss! This is our Final CLTP Production of the 2011/2012 season to be performed at the Atlas Theatre.
