Who Shall Live? w/ Philip Rocco

It’s a very special holiday episode, and to celebrate we’re diving deep in that most festive of topics: Medicare for All, Obamacare repeal, and the lengths wonks go to keep people from thinking public policy is for “the public.” The Panel is joined by Philip Rocco, Assistant Professor of Political Science at Marquette University, and co-author of Obamacare Wars: Federalism, State Politics, and the Affordable Care Act. He walks us through the wacky Federal Court ruling against the ACA out of Texas, our Dickensian future, and why his health insurer makes him wear a product literally called the “Virgin Pulse.”
