Ivory Tower

On this week's show the panelists assess why Governor Andrew Cuomo has put reform of New York State's abortion laws on his agenda at this time. Then we move to another health care issue: Whether smokers should be paying more for their health insurance, as Obamacare permits. Both Big Tobacco and the American Cancer Society oppose charging higher rates to smokers, an odd couple for sure.
