J.C. Scott: HHS Regional Director Herb Schultz interviewed

On Tuesday's edition:

We started the show with U.S. Rep. Ron Barber, who talked about the on-going debate in the nation's capital. He expressed his disappointment in lawmakers failing to come to agreement on government shutdown, funding of the Affordable Care Act, and lifting the debt ceiling.

27 min: We were joined by Republican Tucson City Council candidate Ben Buehler-Garcia, who talked about roads, public transportation, crime, job creation and business relations.

41 min: Next up was developer and City Hall commentator Richard Studwell, who is supporting the GOP Council candidate.

51 min: We then interviewed Health and Human Services Regional Director Herb Schultz, who invited listeners to visit and check out the health care marketplace: government-regulated sites where families, individuals, and small businesses can purchase health insurance and qualify for federal subsidies to cover costs. The site will also determine whether people are eligible for Medicaid.

89 min: We talked with Pima County Recorder F. Ann Rodriguez, who gave her take on a recent Attorney General opinion and direction from the Secretary of  State's office to prepare separate ballots for federal and state/local elections, to curtail voting by those who registered using a federal form.

94 min: We finished the show with Arizona Capitol Times writer Hank Stephenson, who reported that Republican state Rep. Brenda Barton took to social media last night and compared President Obama to Hitler, saying, "Someone is paying the National Park Service thugs overtime for their efforts to carry out the order of De Fuhrer."
