Your SCOTUS Health Care Questions Answered

Your SCOTUS Health Care Questions Answered
If the Supreme Court rules that the health insurance mandate is unconstitutional, does that invalidate the rest of the law? If it’s upheld, what will it mean to those who cannot afford insurance? Suffolk University Law ProfessorRenee Landers joins us as we open the phone lines to answer YOUR questions.

Guests:
  Renee Landers, professor of law and faculty director, Health and Biomedical Law Concentration, Suffolk University Law School
  Brendan Abel, Suffolk law student, managing editor of the Suffolk Journal of Health & Biomedical Law, co-authored New England Journal of Medicine article with Landers summarizing the constitutional issues having to do with health reform

The Great Back Bay Blackout
After a smoky electrical transformer fire knocked out power to about 21,000 homes and businesses, sections of the neighborhood are getting back online. But problems are expected to persist into tonight. We’ll have the latest.

Guests:
  Garrett Quinn, WGBH contributor and author of the Less is More blog on Boston.com
  Meg Mainzer-Cohen, president of the Back Bay Association
  Marcia Gregg, a Back Bay resident who (along with her family) lost power (and still doesn’t have it)
  David Jacobs, publisher and editor The Boston Courant, covers Back Bay, South End Beacon Hill and Fenway

The Baffler Is Back
The self-described “journal that blunts the cutting edge” is back in print after a two-year hiatus. The Baffler’s latest issue of scathing media, political and cultural criticism hits newsstands tomorrow. And no cow is sacred. (Not even the one that pays its bills).

Guests:
  John Summers, editor of The Baffler
  Thomas Frank, journalist and author of books like What’s The Matter With Kansas? and most recently, Pity The Billionaire. Founding editor of The Baffler
