Today is November 11 – Veterans Day! I found some old papers of my dad’s from his time in the Army that I’ll share as we begin today’s show.

Our guest today is health insurance industry whistleblower Wendell Potter. He has been fighting along with progressives for Medicare for All since he first testified before Congress in 2009. He’s still fighting for us! Today, he leads the Center for Health and Democracy, a non-profit organization working to transform our health coverage system.
