Counterpoint Recap 9/20: Obamacare or Shutdown

By Meg McGee | Counterpoint | September 23rd, 2013 |

This week the Counterpoint team debated the politics behind Obamacare and why Washington is constantly in a deadlock. It is apparent on both sides of the aisle that neither is budging. Is it worth it to sacrifice Obamacare in order for the government to keep running? What is the importance of social welfare programs? This discussion even had our two Democratic correspondents debating with each other. Listen to the audio and decide for yourself.

Later this week we will be airing UM President Donna Shalala’s discussion with student media on Obamacare.
