The “Consider This!” Podcast, Episode 79: A Human Rights Question, and More Money for the VA and Medicare

The latest episode of the “Consider This!” podcast is out. Conservative commentary in 10 minutes or less.

A little unfinished business from last episode about the troubles with veterans getting health care from the VA. In an opinion piece at the Huffington Post by H. A. Goodman, he argues that Republicans have been complaining about how bad the VA is, but hypocritically voted against a bill for various funding for the VA back in January. But there’s a problem with that, and it’s not something you’ll hear on most newscasts.

I’ll be discussing a human rights article written by the Hoover Institution, which asks the burning human rights question of our time.

One of the alternatives to ObamaCare that the Left suggested is that Medicare should just be expanded to cover everyone. It “worked”, so they said, and thus that would be a simpler way to get health care coverage expanded. But what do you mean by “worked”, actually? I’ll talk about what taking Medicare nationally might mean.
