This Time Magazine Article will be the focus of tonight’s show: Bitter Pill: Why Health Care Costs Are Killing Us My guest is Health-Care Consultant Stefan Boyland, whose job it is to cut out the fat in all areas of health care and to give health-care consumers a fair break.
My guest is Tim Kurek, who was raised in such an ultra-religious family that they “considered Jerry Falwell a liberal.” Tim went underground in the gay community after a friend came out to him. He pretended to be gay and came away with some realizations that surprised him. I also discuss health care costs and Obamacare based on this highly revealing article in TIME Magazine. Unfortunately, due to a technical malfunction, this show did not record properly. For the first half hour or so, you can hear only Tim and not the questions I asked him. I have removed most of the “empty sound” consisting of when I was talking, so you can only hear Tim for the first 27 minutes. The last hour and ten minutes of the show — the second file attached — functions perfectly.

Terry D. Kester argues that America is becoming a narcissistic, individualist culture, and we are losing our larger sense of community. Is he right? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sga1_KJRiSg

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s1Yh2Xm5t-A How politicians legally manipulate the system to make sure democracy fails (This was our inaugural video of the Raucous Caucus but was unfortunately incomplete. The audio below is the complete show. The video above is the last 30 minutes or so of that show. So to listen to the entire show and still watch the video, listen to the audio until 21:40 and then switch to the video from the beginning.)
In his Inauguration Speech, President Obama came out… As a liberal. What does that mean for the next four years? (Unfortunately only the last hour and five minutes of this three-hour show was recorded (mostly on Obama’s foreign policy). It is reproduced below. To hear a longer discussion on Obama’s Inaugural Speech, check out the Inside Scoop for January 27, 2013.)
