RealClear Radio Hour: Obamacare & Massachusetts Tax Revolt

This week on RealClear Radio Hour— two political activists share stories from their campaigns opposing Obamacare and Taxachusetts.

We dedicate this weekend’s program to the memory and legacy of our second guest, Barbara Anderson, who passed away last week. Barbara was a tireless, happy warrior for tax reform in Massachusetts where she garnered respect from political friends and foes alike.

I’m joined first by Sally Pipes, president and CEO of the Pacific Research Institute, columnist, and author of The Way Out of Obamacare. Sally shares her experience with Canada’s single-payer system and insists government health care cannot meet Americans’ demand for choice, affordability, and service. She proposes reforms to put consumers back in the driver’s seat of their health care and coverage decisions. 


Up second is Barbara Anderson, founding executive director of Citizens for Limited Taxation. Barbara describes the campaign she led for Proposition 2½, the Massachusetts statute limiting property taxes, which has endured since 1980. She commented on how the political landscape has changed in the 36 years since the measure’s passage and what she expected from the primaries this election season.


You can hear the discussion by listening to the full show as-aired on iTunes, or you can check out the podcasts hosted on YouTube and SoundCloud. Make sure to check back next week for another episode of RealClear Radio Hour.
