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.

Join Scott, Cherise and George with Sue Berger (Crusader for CGM Coverage by Medicare)
Last year Sue and her husband turned 65 and her definition of herself changed; she defines herself as her husband’s advocate for his Continuous Glucose Monitor (CGM).They started this journey sometime in September or October of 2012 when he needed a new CGM because his 2 ½ year old system had started to behave very erratically. They never considered that they would have a problem replacing the CGM with a new one...they were wrong.

Clinical Psychologist Dr. E. Douglass Brown is the guest speaker to talk about the Bliss Point. This is his 3rd installment of this special topic. He says, “Each person is a traveler who journeys first from a condition of knowing nothing, then to a condition of infantile self-obsession, then to a condition of being possessed by anyone or anything that the person thinks can induce pleasure and relieve discomfort. Some of us eventually make it to a state of freedom from bondage to fleeting urges, affiliations, and ego-attachments. That state of freedom is commonly referred to as Higher Consciousness - aka - the ‘Bliss Point.’ It is 'what I want' as I near the end of my journey – not what someone else wants for me, it is 'what I hope to become' as I near the end of my journey, not what someone else wants me to become.”
