June 24, 2015

Journalist Trudy Lieberman, explains why opponents and supporters of the Affordable Care Act are both spreading myths about the ACA. Is Obamacare unaffordable for many middle class consumers? Debating the costs of healthcare. How many families are choosing to take the penalty because the costs are to high? Why the Medicaid expansion is the best part of the ACA and how Republican Governors have harmed their people. How insurance has been shifted more and more onto consumers. Why we need full universal healthcare coverage. And why coops in the healthcare market may end up failing.

On The Fun Half: Two NYPD cops argued about who would call their supervisor after shooting Akai Gurley. Who is the MR team going to vote for? A powerful call from a on Islamophobia and the targeting civilians in the Middle East. Also your calls and IMs.
