The Ross Kaminsky Show, February 12, 2012
On the February 12, 2012 edition of The Ross Kaminsky Show, we’ve got everything from politics to birth control to Whitney Houston.
In the 11 AM hour, we’ll be joined by Peter Ferrara, among other things the author of “America’s Ticking Bankruptcy Bomb” about health insurance mandates, and specifically the history of the mandate as people across the political spectrum claim that it was originally a conservative idea. Even the well-known conservative pundit Ann Coulter recently wrote a positive piece about Romneycare in which she made various arguments in favor of a mandate, at least at the state level. Peter Ferrara disagrees emphatically, and he’ll tell us why.
What do you think? Should a government at any level make the purchase of a product or service a requirement just for being a human being living under their jurisdiction? Do you buy any of the argument that the mandate could indeed be supported by conservatives?
In the noon hour, we’re going to talk about the ongoing uproar against the Obama administration’s initial refusal to grant a waiver to religious institutions (other than churches) for an Obamacare requirement that employer-provided health insurance policies must cover birth control, the “morning after” pill, and even some sterilization services at no cost to the insured.
On Friday, the administration backed away from their politically moronic move, but we’ll see where they actually end up on this.
We’ll speak with Federico Genoese-Zerbi, an active and religious Catholic who has a degree in Canon Law, namely the law of the Catholic Church. We’ll also speak with Steve Miller, counsel for the Colorado Christian University (which is not Catholic) which is strongly opposed to the new rule.
What’s your take? Should birth control be covered by insurance for free for everyone? Is that really insurance? And do you really think that it will be “free"? And what does it say about our society when we’re supposed to provide birth control pills for free, both economically and morally? This issue has the possibility of remaining a very hot topic all the way through the November election.
And in the 1 PM hour, we’ll talk about the untimely though perhaps not too surprising death of Whitney Houston, arguably one of the greatest singing voices of all time. Are you sad, shocked, both, neither? What time in your life does hearing Whitney Houston’s music take you back to?
All this, and maybe even more, on this Sunday’s edition of The Ross Kaminsky Show!
