    Politics Done Right on KPFT - America can afford Medicare for all

    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.

    Medicare for All Part 2

    in Women

    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.

    2016 - IT'S ALL ABOUT THE MIDDLE CLASS, STUPID!

    in Politics Progressive

    In 1992, the Clinton campaign war room featured the mantra:  "It's The Economy, Stupid!"


    In 2016, the next Clinton campaign war room, no doubt, will have a mantra:  "It's The Middle Class, Stupid!"


    GOP presidential candidate wannabee Jeb Bush has put this little nugget into play himself this week as being central to his candidacy should he run.


    The other GOP bozos in the 2016 presidential sweepstakes might very well adopt this rallying cry as the heart and soul of their respective campaigns as well.  But they offer only an echo, not a real choice.


    Irregardless, the middle class has been pared back substantially over the years by Reaganomics and is on its heels, economically.  It constitutes a significantly smaller slice of the electorate than it did in the 1960's.


    The lower class has grown substantially since that time, in large part thanks to misguided GOP economic policies.


    Hillary Clinton should recognize this central tenant of our American political dynamic and throw caution to the wind in defense of the middle class if she wants to run any semblance of a genuine presidential campaign in 2016.


    You simply can't have a great country without a strong and thriving middle class.


    It's disengenuous for the GOP to suddenly jump on this band wagon at this stage of the game.  Conversely, it is an absolute Christmas gift for any Democratic presidential candidate given the brutal assault on the middle class, particularly since the ascendancy to the presidency by George "W" in 2001.


    It's definitely Hillary's to lose.  If she's too cautious or tentative then all bets are off.


    Jeb Bush Is Definitely Not Middle Class Material & Neither R His GOP Cohorts.


    So Hillary, it's best that if you are going to RUN, then you actually RUN & not "WALK" your way through the process!
