Today's Show » Embarrassing day for Wilkow

Now I see how someone can say that "the arguments cannot be broken".... You simply just refuse to acknowledge the many times that they are. Take today for example: Wilkow went on another of his factless rants on oil production in the US, and a caller pointed out that domestic production matters little to the price... Our mild winter (and increased domestic production) should have caused prices to drop... The caller correctly pointed out the rule that Wilkow constantly pretends he understands --- Price is affected by supply and demand. We just had an increased supply, and lower demand -- but prices went UP. Wilkow said that the price for oil is "global"... When the caller pointed out that Wilkow just negated his own argument (that what WE do as a country doesn't matter in the grand scheme of price), Wilkow then shifted the discussion to why Obama was talking about supply.... Mercifully, for Wilkow, the hour ended and nothing further was said.... Good laugh.

Wilkow asked another caller to point to the place in the Constitution that allows the government to force you to purchase something. The caller said the 'Commerce Clause'. Which, depending on the upcoming ruling of the Supreme Court, is likely the correct answer. Article 1, Section 8.3 "Congress shall have the power to regulate commerce with foreign nations, and among the several states, and with the indian tribes" -- 'Regulate' means to 'control or direct by rule, principle or law'. Surely, commerce is affected by healthcare -- unless there is someone out there who can name another product or service that is lawfully and morally provided whether or not a person can pay for it or not... Food? Nope. Water...? Nope... The slippery slope argument that the government can then tell you that you have to buy this or that is nonsensical when you try to compare it to healthcare... It is unique.

Finally, on the pre-existing conditions rant, Wilkow said that the pre-existing conditions rule in Obamacare is like allowing people to wreck their cars and then try to go get insurance to pay for the repair... Besides there being a huge difference between a human life and a hunk of metal you drive, a car repair shop is not morally or lawfully required to repair your car whether or not you can pay for it. So, it's NOT like trying to insure your car after you've wrecked it.
