Laura Ingraham hosted Senator Orrin Hatch of Utah.
Hatch said he and others are working against IPAB (independent Pay Advisory Board) is an unelected group that has total say over Medicare and health care pricing. Ingraham pointed out that the high risk funds are shutting down due to lack of funds and that health care exchanges have low rates of participation. This has resulted in layoffs, interference in the doctor-patient relations and less health care.
Hatch said there isn't money to pay for Medicaid promises made to the states and thinks states that are signing on are making big mistakes. He said the states who sign up for these exchanges will be left high and dry eventually. He noted Medicaid is the largest expense for most states.
Hatch is against background checks for guns because it is too much government in people's lives. He was pleased with the Heller decision and thinks most liberal Demcorats would do away with the Second Amendment. He said there are background checks that aren't being used.
Hatch stated that is all his years in Congress he's never seen so many people turning to government for help.
