SORT BY Relevancy
In 2012, 47 million nonelderly Americans were uninsured. This is not a statistic. This is a crisis.
Join us and our special guest Al Gladyck, in a discussion about the issues of our current healthcare system, the Affordable Healthcare Act (ACA), the Expanded & Improved Medicare For All Act (H.R. 676), and the likelihood of single payer Medicare-for-all happening in our lifetime.
About our guest:
Al Gladyck is a retired auto worker, UAW member from Detroit, MI. Al worked for 18 years putting parts on cars, 15 years changing light bulbs and 4 years in between as a computer programmer.
Al’s health care activism came in late 2008 or early 2009, when he ran into an old friend from his Chrysler days. His friend gave him a copy of Medicare For All (HR676) and asked him if he wanted to help get healthcare for everyone:
“I read it. Until then the only thing I knew about healthcare was my insurance card.”
Al lives in Clinton Twp, MI, with his wife, a retired elementary public school teacher.

This week’s show

America can afford Medicare for all
Last week while performing my engineering duties on KPFT’s Thinkwing Radio with Mike Honig, a rather disturbing call came from a caller. The caller was not a bad person. The caller was not ill willed. The caller simply bought into the tenet that the mythical free market can solve all of America and the world’s problems.
I do not mind folks having different ideological beliefs in most segments of our economy. In fact it may even be a great experiment to show what works effectively.
Where these ideologies cause pain, financial distress, or deaths unnecessarily to our fellow human beings, to our fellow Americans, one should not leave it up to some unseen, unknown, or so far failed market.
When the caller implied that morality had no role in the implementation of healthcare, I was left flabbergasted. He seemed to be of the belief that somehow there was some intrinsic benevolence to our mythical free market.
There are grey areas in every debate. However there are areas where there are absolutes. Healthcare is one of the areas with absolutes. Those who want a complete mythical free market answer to healthcare have already been proven wrong. Americans need not have had to go through the past decades of wasteful medical spending and medical robbery. Simple arithmetic had the answer.
There is only one solution that makes mathematical sense. It is Medicare for all.
30 minutes is not enough time to cover this topic, so as I mentioned on my show Monday, May 30, Medicare for All is a multi part series. Tuesday's show I'll continue to discuss - hopefully with a few callers who will be able to get through - the right-wing lie of so-called disasterous government controlled health care in other countries; so-called death panels; our Veterans health care system - why our vets should be able to go to any hospital, anywhere, and receive the best care offered for their ills or injuries; how our Medicare and Medicaid systems work - and don't work, and why I feel everyone should pay into a single payer system - everyone - or it won't work. I will also touch upon how we are paying the entire insurance bill for members of congress - even though many of us can't afford our OWN insurance. That one baffles me. Hope you will join me.
In Revelation Chapter 21 verses 1-8 Beloved we see a New
Heaven and a New Earth and the the New Jerusalem the...
Holy City of God coming down and the
one who sits on the Throne saying...
"I Am Making Everything New"...
We see that there will be no more death, mourning, or crying or
pain, for the old order of things have passed away.
How wonderful that Day will be Beloved when we together as one
will Worship the LORD in Spirit and in Truth in His Holy City.
He will be Our God and we will be His People. Read Revelation 21.
Beloved how do we get to the New Jerusalem of Our Heavenly Father?
Beloved we are encouraged while here on this earth to 1. Accept Jesus's
Gift of Salvation.
Jesus while he was alive spoke to His Disciples and today Dear Beloved
we have the Words of the LORD in His Holy Bible.
John 12:32 Jesus said, and if I be lifted up from the earth, I will draw all
men unto myself.
Back then many Jews believed on Jesus but they kept silent for fear of
being kicked out of the Synagogue. The Word says in John 12:42, they
loved human praise rather than the praise of God.
We are called to come unto the Father and John 14:6 says it best...Jesus said,
"I am the way, the truth and the life, no onee comes to the Father except
Beloved as we agree in Prayer this evening, it is my sincere Prayer that no
matter what you are faced with...know that the Father through His Son Jesus
Christ is making all things "NEW" now and in the Promised Future for those

James 2:1 My brethren, have not the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with respect of persons.
2 For if there come unto your assembly a man with a gold ring, in goodly apparel, and there come in also a poor man in vile raiment;
3 And ye have respect to him that weareth the gay clothing, and say unto him, Sit thou here in a good place; and say to the poor, Stand thou there, or sit here under my footstool:
4 Are ye not then partial in yourselves, and are become judges of evil thoughts?
5 Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him?
6 But ye have despised the poor. Do not rich men oppress you, and draw you before the judgment seats?
7 Do not they blaspheme that worthy name by the which ye are called?
8 If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well:
9 But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors.
10 For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.
