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.

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.

Listen to her testominial and then YOU can decide (or have more information to make a decision) once and for all if ObamaCare (Obama Care) is good for America or not.

How to survive a tragedy!
Have you ever noticed that God’s “judgment “ voice is always with you?
Have you ever noticed that when you do wrong God’s voice is with you?
Is it God’s voice or is it the condemning voice of man and God’s voice is in the background somewhere saying, “I will never leave you or forsake you.
Psalms 23:1-6 NKJV
1 A Psalm of David. The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters.
3 He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness For His name's sake.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me All the days of my life; And I will dwell in the house of the LORD Forever.
