    Obamacare’s Dirty Little Secret (Guest: John C. Goodman, Ph.D.)

    Obamacare’s Dirty Little Secret (Guest: John C. Goodman, Ph.D.)

    Hidden within the intricacies of Obamacare lies an unsettling truth that many are unaware of. Dive deep with us as we uncover how this renowned health care reform might not be the safety net for the genuinely ill as it's often portrayed. Join Host AnneMarie Schieber and guest John C. Goodman, Ph.D., co-publisher of Health Care News and founder of the Goodman Institute for Public Policy Research, to learn the layers behind this revelation.
    Goodman shed light on the problems with Obamacare in his recent article for the Wall Street Journal. He delves into the financial burdens faced by families with severe health challenges who, without an employer plan, turn to Obamacare exchanges. For these families, Obamacare effectively becomes a staggering 182% "tax." Even with insurance subsidies, they face the pitfalls of Obamacare's limited networks. Alarmingly, both Democrats and Republicans remain silent on this issue, and Goodman sheds light on their reticence.
    Despite the U.S. pouring billions into health care across both private and public sectors, glaring coverage gaps persist, leading to mounting medical debts for many. Goodman believes there's a viable solution: the Health Care Fairness for All Act, proposed by Rep. Pete Sessions (R-TX). He also explores the potential of a "Medicare Advantage" style program to revolutionize public health care and insurance exchanges. Goodman contends that insurers should vie to support those with health issues, rather than shying away.

The CCP is influencing the curriculum from elementary schools through graduate programs. The CCP is supportive of radical groups such as Black Lives Matter and Antifa. CCP operatives have gained extremely close access to Democrat office holders such as Congressman Eric Swalwell and Senator Diane Feinstein.

    The Failure of Peer Review in Climate Science

    The Failure of Peer Review in Climate Science

    This episode of Climate Change Roundtable titled, "The failure of peer review: Climate is Beholden to Bullying and Bad Decisions" delves into the shadowy and competitive world of climate journal publications.
    In this episode, our host, Anthony Watts, and weekly panelists, Dr. Sterling Burnett and Linnea Lueken, will delve into the not-so-scientific ways that science gets published (or retracted) that have come to light in the past two weeks.
    We’ll discuss Dr. Robert T. Brown’s stunning admission that he held back certain data and analysis in order to ensure his climate paper got published by Nature. We’ll also look at the “climategate gang” and how they have bullied another journal to retract a paper they don’t like, which had already passed peer review. Now, new evidence has emerged of even more bullying.

360 Student Loans & Donald Kendall

I have be a regular listener for several years. It’s going to be hard to listen now that Kendall has revealed his distain for the Biden proposed loan payoff, yet will be using it for himself. Hypocrite.
I paid my loan off.. I hate this program.
