11-1-19 Nicole Sandler Show- ACA, Medicare for All and More with Wendell Potter

Today is Nov 1, opening day of open enrollment for insurance under the ACA or Obamacare. (Yes, despite Trump's best efforts, Obamacare is still alive and well, and opens today for business.) And Elizabeth Warren released her plan to pay for Medicare for All. Lucky for us, my guest today is Wendell Potter, the whistleblower who exposed the for-profit health insurance industry for the scammers and crooks they are. Today, in addition to discussing our health insurance options today including the choice between Medicare as it stands today and Medicare Advantage, Wendell also weighs in on Warren's and Bernie Sanders' [...]

6-20-19 Nicole Sandler Show – Medicare for All with Wendell Potter

 Many Americans first met Wendell Potter in 2009 when he left the health insurance industry to become a whistleblower and told us the truth. He exposed the industry for the profit-grabbing thieves they are.  Today, Potter is president of The Business Initiative for Health Policy, an organization focused on enacting Medicare for All. He's also the founder of Tarbell.org, an nonprofit, independent, reader supported news site covering money in politics and policy.  And he's the author of a few books including Deadly Spin, which tells the story of his transition from insurance industry PR flak to whistleblower.

2-6-19 Nicole Sandler Show -SOTU Redux and Gaius Publius on M4A

We're still recovering from an ugly and divisive State of the Union address in which Trump threatened no legislation while there's an investigation, and claimed we'd be at war with North Korea by now if he hadn't been elected. I couldn't make this stuff up if I tried. I'll fill you in on what you missed if you opted out. Then Gaius Publius, now writing under his actual name of Thomas Neuburger, returns to talk about the inevitability .. .or not... of Medicare for All. He wrote two pieces about it for Down with Tyranny: "Medicare For All — The [...]
