LISTEN: Obamacare from every angle

September 25, 2013

Whether you love it or hate it, Obamacare is on everybody’s mind this week as Republicans and Democrats duke it out over the president’s health care reform. Here is a sampling of what our hosts and guests are saying about the issue on the SiriusXM airwaves.

Andrew C. McCarthy, the National Review Columnist who’s most recent Op-Ed was titled GOP Con Job: Opposition to Obamacare, calls Obama administration “more insidious than cowardice.”

Senator Ted Cruz has a similar view. Quoting a YouTube sensation on the Senate floor, he said “Obamacare: Ain’t nobody got time for that.”

Obamacare supporter Leo Gerard, the International President of the United Steelworkers (USW) union, has a different opinion. He criticizes opposers like Cruz, saying “the health care bill isn’t perfect but neither was Social Security, neither was Medicare when we first started.”
