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. It was [...]

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 [...]

It's officially the first day of summer, the planet is overheating, and the GOP Senate "Trumpcare" bill might see the light of day tomorrow. I read a Jonathan Cohn piece from Huffington Post on the show to prove that we're being gaslighted by the Republicans over how the Affordable Care Act was written: "The Big Lie Republicans Are Using To Defend Their Secret Health Care Bill". Today, I was happy to welcome author and journalist Helaine Olen to the show to talk about what's wrong with our health care system in the US. We discussed her latest piece for The [...]
