Happy New Year! Starting of 2014 with some News Talk Political Red Meat! In the new year, Democrats will try to shift the political discourse from Obama Care to government programs to address inequality. Are Republicans prepared to meet the Democrat arguments head on? Regardless of whether you are a party person, or a non party person, here are some thought starters on arguments for and against reinstating extended unemployment, raising the minimum wage, and inequality. 2014 is an election year, with the House of Representatives up for election, a third of the Senate, and Governor’s races across the country, including Minnesota.

If there is one topic in the news these days its the failure of Healthcare.gov. Rather than telling everyone what to think about this new policy, I suggest a longer arc, with some ideas to think about going forward. If there was ever a ‘teachable moment’ for policies that extend the power of the state, this is it. Still, what does it mean? What’s the alternative? How do we go about improving it, repealing it, or positioning against it in future elections. Join me for one of the few podcasts exclusively about the ‘Affordable Care Act’ on┬áthis late-night podcast. Sponsored by Baklund LLC; The Problem Solvers. www.baklund.com. (By the way election day is November 5th, not the 7th, as stated in the podcast).
