Friday: Morning Zone Special on SCOTUS Healthcare Decision
Yesterday, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 5 to 4 to uphold the majority of the healthcare Reform Act with conservative Justice John Roberts swaying the majority vote. There are many ramificati0ns with this ruling that effect us all in one way or another, and so, today, Dave Chaffin, host of The Morning Zone will focus the entire program on reviewing these issues with his special guests and callers. Don't miss this important program and weigh in, along with the experts.
7:07AM MDT: Constitutional Attorney, Steve Klein with The Wyoming Liberty Group kicks off the discussion with his views of the decision from the perspective of how it will effect Wyoming and the nation.
8:07AM MDT: Sabrina Schaeffer, Executive Director, Independent Women's Forum, and managing partner of Evolving Strategies. She we9ll talk about how the court ruling sets a very dangerous precedent. The ruling today depends on an interpretation of the health insurance market as “unique,” but in reality this sets a dangerous precedent by allowing for the violation of individual constitutional rights for a vaguely defined exception. Sadly, we can expect this to be expanded and replicated in other industries, other laws, and other future abuses of government power.
8:37AM MDT: Clark Newhall, Executive director of Health Justice, Newhall is a doctor and a lawyer. He said today: "Interestingly, it was Roberts who voted to save 0bamacare from going down in flames. ... The divide is not between liberal and conservative so much as it is between corporatists and everyone else. The current system is in effect a subsidy to the heath insurance industry. We should instead move to get rid of that industry, it is simply not sustainable. The individual mandate has been ruled constitutional as a tax. What that means essentially is that 0bama and Congress could require every American to buy a lousy product at an inflated price."
