This is the opportune time to move single-payer Medicare for all
You can also find previous episodes on YouTube here.
We are going to have a great show today. We will talk about the subject of the day, Trumpcare, Obamacare, and single-payer Medicare for all. With all the chaos that is occurring right now with Republicans attempting to repeal the Affordable Care Act with a tax cut bill that makes evil seem benevolent, Progressives must seize the opportunity to put the only system that can work into the consciousness of the masses.
But before you get to that subject, we have a special guest with us today.Mikael Floyd, an 18-year-old Pearland Texas resident accomplished the impossible. He beat an incumbent to become the youngest person ever to serve. This is what it will take for us to take back our country from the Right Wing destructive fringe. Young people who are the ones that will reap the perils of the evil and immoral policies of the Right must step up. Floyd has done that. The doors are open for our millennials, GenYs, and others to exert their power.
