Overturned Courts, Market-Based Healthcare, Affirmative Action, Political Correctness, Politicizing Weather

This week, Mike and Jay respond to lister questions and comments: if the Ninth Circuit is really the most overturned appellate court (it depends on how you measure), whether we think market-based reforms can lower health care costs (sometimes), if there’s ever a case to be made for affirmative action and political correctness (Mike is much more emphatically ‘yes’ on this than Jay is, as you might expect), whether or not Mike and Jay are wrong for not calling Donald Trump and Jeff Sessions racist (we don’t think so), and why ‘politicization’ is such a dirty word when it comes to weather (Mike says it’s not – or at least it shouldn’t be, while Jay disagrees).

In this episode, Jay recommends SCOTUSBlog, which Mike also likes and has used for many years. Empirical SCOTUS is another great site Jay recommends for data on the Supreme Court.

  1. Had to turn this one off after the first 13 minutes of Jay talking about absolutely nothing. Jay will never admit when he is flat out wrong. Just people you got called out for repeating what you heard from Hannity doesn’t mean you have to just waste time trying to hit all the conservative talking points about the 9th circuit. I should’ve turned off the podcast after the first irrelevant babble from Jay. Then he was asked about market driven health care…. and answered it after 8 more minutes of talking about nothing by saying preventative maintenance is the best. Of course it is, but that has absolutely nothing to do with market driven health care. Painful episode.

    1. Sorry you feel Jay didn’t hold up his end of the debate. I hope you felt that I at least made a few good points. 🙂 – Mike
