In the latest episode of the Banter podcast, we banter (get it!) with AEI healthcare expert Joe Antos on how recent changes to Medicare will negatively impact the most vulnerable. Joe walks us through how the poor are not receiving the care they need in traditional Medicare, Medicare Advantage, and Medigap plans. And if you’re fuzzy on what those programs are, Joe takes the time to describe to this 20-something host what’s what. He also outlines reforms that could fix the system. At the end of the day, if you allow people to make choices for themselves, they tend to make good ones. It’s not too dissimilar to the great choice you’re making in listening to this podcast. Enjoy!

In the latest episode of AEI’s podcast, Banter, AEI Fellow Roger Noriega sits down to talk about the events currently unfolding in Venezuela. With Chavez desperately ill with cancer, the current regime and political opposition brace for a Venezuela after Chavez. We discuss the current balance of power in the country, how the regime will try to consolidate power, and the forecast for the upcoming October elections. Mr. Noriega also discusses the important relationship between Venezuela and China. What level of influence do the Chinese have in the country? How strongly will they back the regime? Lastly, we discuss what the U.S. is doing, what the U.S. is not doing, and the U.S. should be doing.
