Radioactivity: Live Call-In (Friday) | Listen to this entire show:
Good morning, welcome to radioactivity. I’m Rob Lorei. Coming up we’ll open the phone lines- to follow up on Democracy Now’s conversation about the Supreme Court decision on health care.
But first four listener comments about yesterday’s program which was a debate about whether or not we know the truth about what cause the buildings at the World Trade Center to collapse on 9/11.
Yesterday the Supreme Court in a five to four decision upheld the federal health care reform law. The law- so called Obamacare- was a way to try to reduce the number of uninsured people in the US.
First I want to talk with a local person who is undergoing a very difficult situation- her health insurance company is refusing to pay for an expensive operation her doctor said she needed to have. First up today I'll talk with the producer of my Florida This Week WEDU-TV program, Gina Presson. Gina recently had an emergency operation. Now her insurance company is refusing to pay. She joins us live.
Next up- We want to get your opinion on the health care decision….
-Do you support the Supreme Court’s decision?
-What do you think about the Affordable Care Act- does it go too far?
-Was it just about right?
-Or is it not far enough?
-What kind of health care system would you like to see?
-What about our health care system works? What doesn’t work?
-By preserving the role of insurance companies- how are we better off?
