U.S. Senator Rand Paul joins the Heartland Daily Podcast to discuss what he wants to see in President Trump’s pick to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court. Sen. Paul said his model would be another Neil Gorsuch – a surprising answer, considering he’s only been on the high court for two sessions. Sen. Paul said Gorsuch impressed with his deference to our Fourth Amendment against unreasonable searches and seizures in the Carpenter v. United States decision concerning police access to cellphone data the court handed down this week.
Heartland cohosts Jim Lakely and Justin Haskins also talk to Sen. Paul about his support for association health plans – which the U.S. Labor Department this month expanded for small businesses. The new rule will make it easier for private entities to band together and pool their leverage to negotiate better and more-affordable health plans. Dr. Paul (he is an ophthalmologist) explained how this new Labor Department rule could “lead to a revolution” in the health insurance industry, and may even spell the end of the individual insurance market – which would be a good thing in his eyes.
