A Discussion with Mark Steyn and Victor Davis Hanson

This is an excellent podcast. It starts out a little slow with discussion of health care legislation. But there is also discussion of when or if we can expect taxes to stop increasing. There's a little primer on how to read a NYT editorial. A bit on the condescension or the Obamabots. Steyn shares that national health services employees in Canada and the UK do not talk to you about your physical problem but will rather give you explanations of how or wether you fit the bureauacracy's needs. There is the unsettling fact that as is always the case with socialist health care there will be a two tier system in which the politically privileged will have no rules or quotas applied to their care and everyone else will slowly have covered servises decreasing to save cash. There are also passing observations from VDH on the never ending farm subsidy rip off.
Here's a link to the site, Ricochet podcasts. There is also one with John Yoo on this page. I have not listened to it yet. But I am looking forward to it.
