Libertarian Presidential candidate, Austin Petersen joined me in the first half to discuss his views and positions on healthcare on the May 1 airing of the Outbreak News This Week Radio Show.

Petersen discussed in some detail positions on Obamacare and market alternatives to problems of health and wellness, “fixing” the Veterans Administration health system and what he would do with federal health agencies–CDC, NIH and FDA.

We also tackled other health related issues like drug abuse and his “consistent pro-life ethic”.
