The Ed Morrissey Show: Rep. Tim Griffin, Stephen Halbrook

posted at 2:46 pm on January 13, 2014 by Ed Morrissey

Today on The Ed Morrissey Show (4 pm ET), we have a great slate of guests. First, Rep. Tim Griffin (R-AR) joins us to talk about some of his initiatives, including a request to meet with Barack Obama and a number of other Republicans to discuss real health-care reform. We’ll discuss Rep. Griffin’s attempts to block a back-door bailout of insurers through the repeal of the “risk corridor” indemnification in ObamaCare. If we get time, we will also put in a plug for his State of the Union essay contest for Central Arkansas high-school students, too.

In the second half, Stephen Halbrook joins us to discuss his new book, Gun Control in the Third Reich: Disarming the Jews and “Enemies of the State”, which came out last November. Halbrook has researched recently uncovered documents within the Nazi government that demonstrated their effort to disarm their enemies before imposing tyranny on Germany and most of Europe.  Stephen P. Halbrook is a Research Fellow with the Independent Institute who has argued and won three constitutional law cases before the U.S. Supreme Court, and appears on Fox News as an analyst.

The Ed Morrissey Show and its dynamic chatroom can be seen on the permanent TEMS page. Be sure to join us, and don’t forget to keep up with the debate on my Facebook page, too!

Rep. Griffin is on House Ways and Means.

Ed, you can ask him why his chairman Dave Camp (R-MI) is holding up a repeal of medical device tax after the Senate overwhelmingly passed a Sense of Senate resolution on the issue.

You can ask him why he thinks it’s good for a chairman of a powerful committee to hold the country, and an important embattled manufacturing industry, hostage to his chairman’s dreams for eponymous tax system overhaul that will never happen.

Also, can you ask him if we can have our incandescent light bulbs back?
