Ep. 76 Has Obamacare Really Saved Lives? Plus: Now Krugman Knows How Libertarians Feel All the Time

5 March 2017     |     Tom Woods     |     7

We’ve covered Obamacare quite a bit on this podcast, but we had to address Krugman’s claim — advanced by many on the left — that Obamacare has surely saved lives, and its repeal would undoubtedly involve the loss of life. Then we look at Krugman’s worry about the prospect of a media in the regime’s pocket, and private individuals and companies feeling pressured to toe the regime’s line. Yeah, we’ve never seen anything like that before!

Special Guest

For today’s episode we’re joined by Oren Cass, a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute.
