Wed. Morning Zone: Micah, Supreme Court on Obamacare and The State Economy
Today on The Morning Zone, our guests will be:
7:07AM MDT: Micah Halpern, our expert middle eastern analyst and commentator. Micah will update us on the latest happenings with Syria and Iran. Syria has apparently accepted a ceasefire and peace plan drawn up by U.N. and Arab League special envoy Kofi Annan. Annan said it dealt with "political discussions, withdrawal of heavy weapons and troops from population centers, humanitarian assistance being allowed in unimpeded, release of prisoners, freedom of movement and access for journalists to go in and out."
8:07AM MDT: As the Supreme Court continues to hear arguments in the case of the constitutionality of Obamacare, Jim Stergios explores what will happen if the Supreme Court strikes down the federal health care law. Jim is the Pioneer Institute's Executive Director. Prior to joining Pioneer, he was Chief of Staff and Undersecretary for Policy in the Commonwealth's Executive Office of Environmental Affairs. His prior experience includes founding and managing a business, teaching at the university level and in public and private secondary schools, serving as headmaster at a preparatory school, and writing for newspapers. Jim holds a doctoral degree in Political Science. In his new book written by a team of preeminent medical experts (including a forward by the dean of Harvard Medical School) announces a new market-based alternative to ObamaCare...“The Great Experiment: The States, the Feds and Your Healthcare”, that the fundamental mistake of ObamaCare was imposing a giant, untested law on an unwilling nation. “The Great Experiment argues that the GOP 'alternative' to ObamaCare needs to be federal steps that give the states the maximum flexibility to innovate and experiment with free-market healthcare.” Nationally syndicated columnist Cal Thomas praised the book writing just this week that The Great Experiment answers the key question: “What will happen if the Supreme Court strikes down the federal health care law?”
9:07AM MDT: Sees the return of State Senior Economist, Jim Robinson. Jim will update uas on the latest information about the Wyoming eonomy from the State's Economic Analysis Division.
