Cellar Door Skeptics 106: Healthcare Death by Graduate Taxes

This week Chris and Chris combat two of life’s inevitabilities, death and taxes. As a human rights catastrophe in the making, the GOP House and Senate bills, steamrolls its way through the legislative branch the casualties are piling up. The latest victims are the researchers and graduate students all over the country who depend on universities waving the cost of tuition in return for research and teaching undergraduate classes. The new plan would double, triple, or even quadruple their taxes and further drive the income inequality wedge into the intellectual capital of the United States. Also, Chris Hanna finally delivers on the last chapter of his How, What, and Why of the controversial gene editing tool CRISPR Cas 9 while Chris Tanner shifts the gun control conversation into overdrive concentrating on the new Michigan plan to allow guns into previously gun free zones. They close on the most financially intense analysis of the American healthcare system Cellar Door Skeptics has ever seen.
