On this week’s podcast: a busy week at the U.S. Supreme Court, which ruled Thursday in favor of upholding the federal health insurance exchange and Friday in favor of same-sex marriage.
Meanwhile, the media and Internet are in a tizzy over the Confederate flag, which has become a lightning rod for criticism after the tragic shooting in Charleston, South Carolina, last week. Is the flag legitimately to blame for the actions of crazy racists, or is it a scapegoat for a terrible tragedy that has no obvious explanation?
Hosts Eric Boehm and Will Swaim tackle the big issues of the week. Then, Robert Grayboys of the Mercatus Center sits down for an interview about the future of health care reform in the United States, now that it seems like the Affordable Care Act is here to stay. The good news? Politics doesn’t have to be a factor in fixing some of the major problems with how we provide health care, he says.
All that, plus a check-in with the California lawsuit where students are suing their teachers (and the teachers union) over seniority rules, on this edition of the Watchdog Podcast.
