What would happen if the GOP repealed Obamacare?
The consequences of repeal, health care officials and industry analysts say, go beyond the fact that 9 million people would suddenly lose their insurance or that anyone with a pre-existing condition would either lose insurance or pay much higher premiums.
All consumers would take a huge financial hit, because health care costs would continue to rise, and insurers would probably recoup their losses by charging higher premiums.
How will Obamcare be remembered in history poll?

In this edition of The Social Spitball Show, Bram Sarkowski leads a discussion on topics discussed in the previous shows or brand new topics.
There will be no featured special guests on this show, but all past guests are invited to call in and participate in the discussion. This is a caller-oriented hour long Follow Up Hour show.
Bram is looking forward to talking with you!
For this edition of The Social Spitball Show, host Bram Sarkowski and co-hosts Barbara Dantonio and George Fisher welcome accomplished & inspring actor, author, Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) activist and owner/publisher at Ark Stories Kimberley Johnson.
Ms. Johnson's most famous work, THE VIRGIN DIARIES, is a book about sex that really isn't about sex at all. Rather, it's about the feelings associated with that first time. (amazon.com review)
Barbara introduced this dynamic woman to George and Bram more than a year ago. Dubbed "the Liberal answer to Ann Coulter" by some, we all certainly look forward to what should be an amazing conversation about gender, sex, culture, politics, equality, activism etc.
Following Ms. Johnson, we welcome two candidates for office:
*Jim Evans is running for Congress in Missouri's 7th Congressional District. He will join us around 7:35pm Eastern Time Zone.
*Jeremy VanHooser is running for Colorado State House in District 1. He will join us around 8:08pm Eastern Time Zone.
We hope you'll join us from 7-9pm Eastern on Sunday, March 9!!
In this inaugural Thursday episode of "The Social Spitball Show Follow Up Hour with Bram Sarkowski," Bram Sarkowski will lead a discussion on three topics of great importance to him.
*The repeal of the Racial Justice Act in NC and why it was important
*Voting Rights for Ex-Felons who have served their time
*ALEC-sponsored "Stand Your Ground" laws and the recent verdicts in the trials regarding the murders of Trayvon Martin and Jordan Davis.
There will be no featured special guests on this show, but all past guests are invited to call in and participate in the discussion.
Bram is looking forward to talking with you!
Judge Mark Davis is currently sitting on the second highest court of North Carolina. Having been appointed to the North Carolina Court of Appeals by Governor Perdue, Judge Davis is looking to keep his seat for a full term.
Mark Davis is part of a group that calls themselves Fair Judges for North Carolina. Though Judge Davis cannot delve into any issues that could come before him at the North Carolina Court of Appeals, we are eager to hear what he has to say about the court and how it affects our daily lives.
Let's get the conversation going...
Show host Bram Sarkowski will be joined again by co-hosts George Fisher and Barbara Dantonio as they welcome both Michael Fjetland (D-TX) & Maxey Scherr (D-TX), as our featured guests for this episode. These two will come on at separate times as they are both running for the same nomination to replace Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX).
Other newsworthy guests will be joining us as well.
In particular, Congressman G.K. Butterfield has been very fiery as of late in his defense against what he describes as actions that "...offend what we are as Americans."
This weekend, Congressman Butterfield granted an interview with The Social Spitball Show as facilitated by George Fisher. We are excited to share this interview with you all!
Bram would like to bring up the Racial Justice Act, the taking of voting rights of Ex-Felons who have served their time, and the verdicts in both the Jordan Davis and the Trayvon Martin cases in Florida. ALEC-sponsored laws like "Stand Your Ground" in Florida will certainly be brought up.
NOTE: If we don't get to Bram's issues listed above, be sure to tune in to a "Followup Hour" on Thursday, February 27 at the same time slot of 7pm Eastern Time Zone. Bram will be leading the discussion and will be glad to take your calls (you can find this followup hour show in the upcoming episodes section of Bram Sarkowski's blogtalkradio.com profile page)
We will discuss a variety of other issues related to candidate filing periods and upcoming primaries in many states across this nation.
For this edition, we have two special guests who are running for Congress & one special guest who is running for Georgia Senate.
*First up, Lane Siekman is running as a Democrat for Congress in Indiana's 6th district.
Lane is a family man, a successful lawyer and a public servant who has waited for his time to run (having run for State Senate back in 1990).
You can learn more about Lane's campaign at:
*For our second conversation, we at The Social Spitball Show welcome Evan "Ivan" Thomas.
Evan is a 28 year Air Force veteran. He has moved around the world and he understands that freedom isn't free.
Evan's bid for Congress is predicated on the belief that a basic approach to problem solving is what is needed in Washington.
You can find out more about Evan at:
*Our third special guest is J. Harrison Nixon, who is a candidate for Georgia State Senate.
As the "Moral Mondays" protests and arrests (two waves so far) move to Georgia and other states, candidates like Harrison are stepping up to really highlight these important issues on the campaign trail.
Nixon is a body modification artist and says on his website: "I may look different, but Georgia needs different."
He is a husband, father, ordained minister and calls himself a moderate/conservative Democrat and believes Georgians need to be respected and allowed to get back to work.
Learn more about Harrison here:
I hope you'll listen in to all of these great conversations. We appreciate you listening and we welcome you to call in after our conversations.
We look forward to getting the conversation going...
The Social Spitball Show with Bram Sarkowski is happy to welcome Vic Meyers and Bruno Moore.
Vic Meyers is a Democratic candidate for Congress in 4th District of Colorado. Mr. Meyers describes himself as "a 45-yr old, working-class husband and father who lives in Trinidad." He is also a veteran, knows the price for freedom and is fed up with the do nothing Congress being controlled by the radical right wing Tea Party members.
He is seeking the Democratic nomination to run to replace Tea Party Congressman Cory Gardner.
Bruno Moore is a Democratic candidate for the Florida State Senate, District 32.
He is best known for his years of traffic reporting work on local radio and TV. Of particular interest to him is bridging the gap between our so-called representatives and the people they are charged to serve. Young adults, ages 18-30 are a disenfranchised group which is often overlooked in policy matters. Bruno's desire is to help change that.
This follow up hour will start out with talk of medicaid expansion efforts in "red states."
Following this informative talk, Bram will welcome co-hosts George and Barbara to talk about the latest events of the North Carolina Democratic Party.
As the last show of January, Bram Sarkowski and his usual political co-hosts, George Fisher & Barbara Dantonio (founders of PETV: People for the Ethical Treatment of Voters) will tackle a number of election year issues. The show won't end without a discussion of Voting Rights, as usual.
Primaries, International turmoil and party infighting...OH MY!!!
"Your Man in Amsterdam" Bram Sarkowski will guide you and other listeners through these potential topics and more.
This follow up hour show format doesn't automatically have special guests because the special guest is YOU when you raise your voice.
Call (646) 478-3349 to listen in or to get on the show. Bram is looking forward to hearing from you!
Let's get the conversation going...
