By Hyan Freitas | News Director | November 22nd, 2013 |

In 2012 our nation witnessed history in the making when President Obama‘s Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act was made law. Last june, the Supreme Court upheld the premise of Obamacare, which applied a penalty to people who do not purchase health insurance.  Now with the law in place, the success of public health care rides on the enrollment of young adults under the age of 35 to offset the cost of health insurance for the elderly. How do University of Miami students feel about this? WVUM News reporter Chloe Herring finds out student opinions on this and some other key controversial issues regarding Obamacare.

NGOs and the Future of Haiti

The Big Truck That Went By: How the World Came to Save Haiti and Left Behind a Disaster is the daunting title of a very important book by author Jonathan Katz.  As the name suggests, the book critiques the international response to the Haitian earthquake of 2010.  When the quake hit, Katz was the only full-time correspondent there, which suggests he was fully involved in the country before international attention focused there following the beginnings of humanitarian efforts.  Katz will be talking about his book at an event at the Miami Book Fair International this sunday november 24th at 3:30 p.m.

 The Weekly Voice airs Fridays at 10am.  It is hosted by Hyan Freitas.
