1-12-22 Nicole Sandler Show – The Privatization of Everything

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   I had planned to deal with Biden's push for voting rights in the first half hour of the show. But I started talking about our guest coming up at the bottom of the hour, Donald Cohen. He's the founder and executive director of In The Public Interest, and his book titled The Privatization of Everything: How the Plunder of Public Goods Transformed America and How We Can Fight Back.  That set me off on a rant about Medicare Advantage and how it's [...]

12-15-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Will Bunch Wednesday (and Ryan Grim Too)

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   It's Wednesday, 10 days before Christmas, and it's clear that Congress wants to go home for the holidays as they're getting a lot of work done.

Obama will break [...]

Privatize This!

"It's not a budget. This is a cause."  A direct quote from Republican Paul Ryan, the Eddie Munster lookalike who heads up the House Budget Committee on his budget... er... cause. The thing that everyone needs to be screaming/blogging/talking about is the fact that Ryan's budget cause would do to Medicare what George W. Bush wanted to do to Social Security - kill it!  W failed in that quest.  Thank goodness.  Because if he had been successful in privatizing Social Security, he would have killed it - along with millions of seniors who would have lost everything when the banksters [...]
