Evaluating the Implementation of Obamacare
Vermont has published the first proposed health rates in the country to go into effect after the Affordable Care Act goes into effect. Although Vermont may not be the best state to represent the overall impact on individual health insurance costs, those first signs suggest rates that are in line with current rates. My guest Philip Galewitz is a reporter for Kaiser Health News and we have him in studio to talk about this and other things we can expect after the ACA goes into effect October 1.
The Supreme Court as an Issue in Presidential Elections
The Supreme Court often comes up as an election issue. You hear about activist justices or bad Constitutional interpretation. This is not a new phenomenon as the Supreme Court – as well as the lower courts – have become expected to weigh on issues that were once considered political questions rather than legal ones. We saw such decisions become major issues in the last presidential election as they took on the Affordable Care Act, Arizona’s Immigration Law and even same-sex marriage, although that was decided well after the election. How much of a role does the Court play in federal elections now and throughout our Constitutional history? For that, we talk to William Ross, a Professor at Samford University’s Cumberland School of Law in Birmingham, Alabama.
Is the Gay and Lesbian Movement today the New Civil Rights Movement of the 60's, Should Same Sex couples be allowed to Marry, What does the Supreme Court has to say, is Homosexuality a Sin or Not? All on The Ash & Bates Show. Let's Talk...
Today we're going to look at the upcoming decision of the Supreme Court to decide on the definition of marriage, as well as a recent column by Joseph Farah on WND.com concerning banning therapy. We'll also address breaking news as it happens.
We are continuing our week-long coverage of the debate over same-sex marriage. Today the Supreme Court heard a challenge against the Defense of Marriage Act which passed in 1996. The law defined marriage as only being between a man and a woman affecting 1,100 statutes covering everything from taxes to federal benefits. Like the state of California in the case of Proposition 8 heard yesterday, the Obama Administration has elected not to defend the law against court challenge. As a result, members of Congress formed the Bipartisan Legal Advisory Group to take up defense of DOMA, opening a challenge to their very defense because they may lack standing. The Court also must decide whether same-sex couples are a protected class in the way interracial couples were determined to be in Loving v. Virginia which overturned laws outlawing interracial marriage.
A little later, I will have in-studio, Fred Karger, a long-time Republican campaign consultant and now director of Rights Equal Rights, a pro-same sex marriage advocacy group. Before that we’ll get into the case itself with some legal insight from William Duncan of the Marriage Law Foundation who wrote an amicus brief for the Court in support of BLAG and those calling DOMA constitutional. But first we’ll talk to David McKean, legal director for OutServe-SLDN who wrote a brief on in support of plaintiffs challenging DOMA.
Chapter 1: The IRS targets Tea Party groups eliciting outcry from GOP and call for action by Obama
The IRS admitted that it had been inappropriately scrutinizing Tea Party groups applying for non-profit status. As a result, some groups have promised to sue. Meanwhile, the president today said it was unacceptable and that it would be investigated. We get the lowdown from Steve Dennis, CQ Roll Call White House reporter.
The U.S. Supreme Court issued a decision today on Monsanto, whether or not the company can force farmers to discard patented seeds after their first use. When supplying such seeds to farmers, Monsanto requires they sign an agreement that says they will not cultivate new seeds from crops they grow. One such farmer did not adhere to this requirement and was sued by Monsanto and the case went all the way to the Supreme Court which ruled today for Monsanto in a unanimous decision saying the company had a right to protect its patent and the farmer had violated it. We talk to Bill Freese, Science Policy Analyst for the Center for Food Safety.
