March 1, 2013

GUESTS:  CHARLES STILE, JOHN BAER, JOHN MICEK

We’ll start off this hour of Radio Times with an update on New Jersey politics in the week of Governor Chris Christie’s budget address, which surprisingly included a reversal expanding Medicaid enrollment under the Affordable Care Act.  Joining us with a New Jersey politics update is CHARLES STILE, political columnist for The (Bergen) Record. Then, JOHN BAER, columnist for the Philadelphia Daily News and JOHN MICEK, editor of the editorial and opinion pages for The Patriot-News and Penn Live, give us an update on Pennsylvania politics including Tom Corbett’s stagnant approval ratings and his reelection efforts, initiatives to privatize the lottery and liquor stores, pressure to accept Medicaid funds, and efforts to reform the electoral college and voter ID laws.
