Prager H3: Is addiction a disease? Or is it more a matter of choice? Is alcoholism different than drug addiction? Dennis explores these questions and more. Callers weigh in.
Prager H2: The purists in the Republican Party killed a bill that would have been a major step in the right direction re: returning health care to free market principles. No, it wasn’t perfect. What bill is?… The Bernie Sanders wing of the Democrat party wanted single-payer health care, but they voted for Obamacare.
Prager H1: Of all popular hysterias, nothing provokes stronger opinions than the absolute necessity of breast-feeding. Now the latest study concludes that breast-feeding has no impact on child’s health or cognition over the long term… Medicaid has grown into an entitlement monster. Obamacare super-sized it. The Repeal and Replace bill would have put it on a diet.
Prager H3: Dennis talks to Daniel Henninger, Wall Street Journal columnist and member of the Journal’s editorial board. The topic is the failure of the Republicans to repeal and replace ObamaCare… Trump has been a solid conservative since the day of his victory. The Freedom Caucus has kicked his agenda in the teeth with their intransigence. They’ve weakened his presidency.
Prager H2: How are Republicans supposed to come up with a bill more palatable to the Freedom Caucus than the one they couldn’t pass on Friday. And when is it supposed to happen?… Sunnis and Shiites in Iraq are irreconcilable… Dennis talks to Pete Hoekstra, former chairman of the House Intelligence Committee about the “wiretapping” of Trump Tower.
Prager H1: The Republicans blew it. They’ve been complaining about ObamaCare for 7 years. They had a chance to end it and they didn’t… Dennis talks to Newt Gingrich, former Speaker of the House of Representatives.
Prager H3: Per usual, callers sent the agenda. Issues raised include: Can Christians read the Talmud; does Dennis get upset when the Left compares President Trump to Hitler.
Prager H2: There is a lot of luck in life – good and bad. Making peace with this fact can help you be happier. If you have good luck be sure to express gratitude.
Prager H1: It’s easy to be “pure” in your principles. It’s easy not to compromise. But real life is messy. Legislation is never pure. There are many tradeoffs… The President approves of the Keystone Pipeline. This is a major victory for jobs and safety… Starbucks founder and CEO, Howard Schultz, is stepping down. He may be planning a run for President in 2020. But his statement that he wants Starbucks to hire 5000 refugees won’t help him… A new study: most cancers are the product of bad DNA luck.
