"And then Bernie comes back in twenty twenty. And i hope that this what would have happened after twenty. Sixteen It didn't quite for reasons that also understandable after the fact but bernie's twenty twenty campaign actually leaves residue on the ground in a lotta places around the country for actual movement buildings and organizing around medicare for all right. I mean we did it. In south carolina for instance and then all almost on cue when bernie drops out of the race of you. Were going to kobe lockdown. And i'm not claiming any connection. I mean don't get me wrong but i don't have the line of pillows to sell but but i think the difference is that as a somebody once said Part of the problem is that our side plays checkers. The other side plays chess and and they they are prepared and and have the apparatus not smarter but him and they're better situated to take care of opportunities that present themselves at the turn small opportunities in the big opportunities. George floyd was the george floyd's murder and i'm not trying to diminish that like anyway. What whatsoever right. But george floyd's murder helped them and the poc activists who are are are oriented against the left. Basically right Food chain a real life. Yeah so here. We are and i mean it's it's not just as crude as you do that and the two billion dollars pledge score for money comes in but i do recall though going back to the beginnings hashtag deal and I saw a panel with Garza committee and colors and was generally taken aback at how garza's seem and and i remember her because she did most of the talking. I was watching. Seemed literally incapable of considering even to reject that there could be a distinction that that there could be like a millimeter of daylight between activities that advances a broader movement and activity that in branches or that advances of you know the position of of of the brand holders right the three of them right and at the same and i think that's kind of what this movement is. Now right and it makes sense makes sense it makes sense because of how you know the social insurgencies of the sixties have been reduced or characterize right as like i mean for a time it was like i remember saying that like you know you go to any middle school or grade school or high school in the country on fifteen january and ask people what they know about martin luther king and they take some burden avalon. Kinda go people that freedom and then martin between came in with free right a but so what one of the things we've forgotten collectively right is is that movements. Don't just happen because somebody shows up with bullhorn and a selfie stick right and and organizing preparation rudeness right. In actual populations are made up of people with names and addresses and phone numbers of people. Who don't have addresses right are can be found right in that sense. I'm not even blaming the activists but it's like a rotten political economic dynamic. That's taking shape over the last half half century and we could go on about. Its its sources and its consequences than entitlements all day. But what. i'm especially concerned about now. Is twenty twenty two. And i don't think by the gift of the world i don't and i think biden is gonna fuck us ultimately whether intends to or not but if at a minimum the democrats can't hold congress and ideally like. I'm not that kind of political scientist. Don't have bets about what what senate races they could win when where but Ideally get a real of a majority in the senate and by the way that would include biden acting towards cinema and mansion the way that of lyndon johnson active toward of never celtics when dams in the senate. It's okay oh you don't both of this than you never see another fucking bridge in state right. I mean would go but none of the democrats syncing been at all inclined to do any of that but if that doesn't happen then you know. I think that that's going to be the end of american democracy right in the next year and and all of these. What's the best way to characterize all of these Performance tendencies that occupy the cultural space. That a serious left when i could buy in the. Us there were one are in effect. Work at the other side right. I mean i think they are. They may not be getting paid But they're in effect I work at the other side. I look at the defunct right. That's a problem we never had to have. And yeah i mean. Republicans would have found something else but but the fact that we give it to them. This gives them space become mobilizing opposition. Anything so i mean this is the reason actually katie knows that other depths jones douglas institute that i'm associated. Weather's like a bible once the three that that was created as the educational arm of the labor party in On a ninety eight is refocusing our work now because we think that that being able to do anything else to win anything or to fight off the worst even is gonna require a lot of aggressive agitation around the idea of government and the public and to try to rekindle among the working class basically A way of having expectations of government and public goods as part of the public. Good and there's not a lotta time. Obviously we can't turn around between now and next november but we got We've we gotta start having a conversation and the only way Tony masaki who was like the key person in origination of the labor party longtime fish oil chemical on a thomas.

"Province or Blue Han. So it's interesting that you say it was. It was likely circulating undetected earlier than first thought. How much earlier? Well, I wouldn't. I would say that. What our research does it put the upper limit on when we think the virus could have first gotten into Bay Province. Um we can't say for certain how long was there but Our models suggest that it's very unlikely that the virus was in new Bay before mid October, 2019 All right, so there were a lot of theories as to you know where this virus started. One of them, of course, was that it was purposely created an elaborate came from an experiment that went wrong or from an animal of the wet market in Wuhan. Does your research helped get closer to finding out exactly what happened. Well, I think you can help us narrow it down. For starters, you no way. Don't see any evidence that it was created in a lab. Nothing about this virus scream. Came out of a laboratory to scientists who looked at it carefully and what we have learned since the start of the pandemic is just this year number of Corona viruses circulating in China and Southeast Asia that there's so many of the smaller biological characteristics Two stars coach. You know we haven't found it direct ancestor in any animal in the wilder in any market yet, But I think the expectation is that if we look hard enough will eventually find something very closely related. Uh, interestingly, our study on and others who came before us Suggest that the ancestor of the virus in China was around in either you know, mid November to mid October, and that would predate the market outbreak by quite some time, which suggests that that that market in Wuhan was less likely to be the point of cross species transmission and more likely a super spreading event. Really check to the epidemic there into a higher gear. All right, Dr. Joel Worth I'm associate professor in the division of infectious diseases and Global public health at the UC San Diego School of Medicine. Thank you for your time this morning, doctor.

Now it's said about 190 point. That's what a half a percent 32 6 72.

"Takes this this incompletely ungenerous interpretation of how of why that speech was embraced by white people right in other words like the the only reason that that people embrace that speeches because it gave a gave us an out right now now all we had to do is pretend that racism doesn't exist and pretend to get along with one another, and whereas it again. I just think it's kind of a radical thing to abandon this idea that maybe there's a future goal where we could work towards. There's a difference between saying we live in a colorblind society or we live in a post racial society. An aspiring towards the exactly yeah, she's. She's explicitly rejecting the aspirational. It's so funny because like. I would love for her to read other Martin Luther King texts and try to grapple grapple with them because what's absent from all of this stuff is is any like discussion of kind of wear. These things hit up against other things like class or like international issues like if you care about racism, what about imperialism? But of course, this is all the very personal individual. Can we read some of your stuff? I can read it if you don't feel comfortable. Assure it's really funny all right so. You write deangelis writings, and this is a PC were subject. called. On white fragility, a few thoughts in America smash hit number one guy, egghead, racialism, and you write, Dangelo instructs us. There's nothing that nothing to be done here. Except strive to be less white to deny this theory, or to have the frontally to sneak away from the tedium of Deangelis lecturing what she describes as leaving the stress, inducing situation is to affirm her conception of. Of white supremacy this intellectual equivalent of ordeal by water. If you float, your witch is orthodoxy across much of academia Deangelis rating silence pure pain. The lexicon favored by intersectional theorists of this type is built around the same principles as Orwell's newspeak. It banishes ambiguity, nuance, and feeling structures itself around a sterile word pairs like racist and Anti Racist Platform D Platform Center and. And silence that reduced all thinking to a series of binary choices. Ironically Donald Trump does something similar only with words like amazing, and said that are simultaneously more childish and livelier informed point, reporters like Dangelo like to make ugly verbs, ugly nouns and ugly nouns verbs. There are countless permutations on centering privileging alone in a world where only a few ideas are considered. Considered important redundancies encouraged eeg quote to be less white is to break with white silence and the white solidarity to stop privileging the comfort of white people or Ruth Frankenberg premier white scholar in the field of whiteness described whiteness multidimensional. She I like this part Dangelo rates like a person who was put in time out as a child for speaking clearly when there is. This equilibrium in the habit tests when social cues are unfamiliar or when they challenged our capital, we use strategies to regain balance. She says people take an out of their comfort. Zones find way to find ways to deal according to Google translate ideas that goes through the English. Dangelo translator usually end up significantly authored a lot of her. Of Her language is like that said it sounds like meaningless gibberish where they're supposed to be the. Subtext underneath, but they're not something. You just literally literally means what she says. It doesn't make any sense I mean. People are coming around to criticizing it a little bit, but. I think if you actually read it, you'd you'd find it. Deeply. Do reading a sentence or a paragraph every week. Well to hope our facilitator. We have a great interview coming up so excited to have on Adolf read. professor emeritus at U..

"Right here this is not about politics. Kiss is a health. Emergency CAN'T WAIT. Brought up theoretical face about the better. Well never ever thought the we have been reporting daily in this matter of camp. Ross this and that means you have a right to come to my house and conscripts do believe in slavery I am Benjamin Day Time Stephanie Nakajima and this is Medicare for all the podcast for everybody needs healthcare except for Pete footage popey. It's mostly because I just never wanNA talk about him again in the last Hurrah. You know it's funny. I feel like coopting Medicare for all. Language became a favorite pastime of America. In the last two years he was a little late to the party but he he brought it hard. Oh Yeah and if you can believe it. The hot takes on twitter where that Medicare for all who want. It was much better than a public option. Oh yeah except it's the same thing with a different name so Stephanie. We're going to start off in South Carolina. Much of the country did this past week and Let's look first at the exit polling before we get into all the politics and stuff so NBC exit polling. This is the one we mostly been using on Medicare for all the other questions sucks. Found a fifty percent support for Medicare for all among South Carolina. Democratic voters Their headline was Medicare for all goes four for four in primary contests so far because we have cleaned up majorities in every single state where we've been voting Safar And there is an interesting Washington Post exit poll a similar numbers but they also tracked who voted for which candidate and crossed that with you know. Medicare for all support and they found among Medicare for all supporters Biden won by fifteen percent which is very interesting. Yeah so Joe. Biden won his first so far and only primary with the help of Medicare for all voters. Can you show us some love? We just got him his first win in three presidential runs. Damn but that's great because you know well. Worst CASE SCENARIO JOE BIDEN IT becomes president. He has an army of Medicare for all supporters. Who got him there? So I don't want to call it. A worse case scenario are potentially worse. Worse case I think it is also interesting that the person who came in second place after Joe Biden who came in I laced with all with all the support of Medicare for all voters Bernie Sanders. Who Basically is the Medicare for all candidate and then after that nobody else got any delegates so medicare for all one cleans up South Carolina even though the numbers were not quite as high just the total numbers as the preceding states And it's hard to know exactly what was going on there without kind of breaking down. You know the demographics of who was supporting Medicare for all in wasn't But we do know that Our movement has a harder time in the south then much of the rest of the country. Which is I think similar to most social justice movements economic justice movements so I would say that these are pretty good numbers Despite the fact that our favorite corporate front group the Partnership for America's Healthcare Future. I'm sorry that you have to hear about them again. Spent two hundred thousand on ads running in Charlotte and Columbia in the week. Leading up to the primary for this particular ad blitz. They developed two new ads for the campaign called priorities and opposite. Why did they go to all the trouble of making new ads instead of just using their old ones? Well I think they're all that were missing. One crucial element for South Carolina. Any black people so they had to come device to new ADS These both basic basically both of these are feature exclusively black women Trying to knock Medicare for all and the public option equally And you know the. The talking points are very similar. Why we're kind of not playing the audio again. It's like you know one one size fits all government takeover of your healthcare Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah But they did add in some new like huge lies in one of their ads. They have they have one section of their ad called priorities. That says Medicare for all is going to increase new taxes by thirty two trillion dollars and lead to higher premiums. Low hasn't catastrophic outcome. That's right this is just getting hysterical. The program that's going to eliminate your premiums going to increase your. Fortunately there are also a groups fighting on the other side of this campaign. The Dead Jones Douglas Institute led the grassroots campaign in State of South Carolina fighting for Medicare for all They collected pledges Encourage people to vote only for Medicare for all candidates and also have been building organizing infrastructure of Medicare for all ambassadors across the state including local mayors and city councillors to organize educational events. So over the past couple of months gathered more than ten thousand pledges in the State of South Carolina and spoke with tens of thousands more voters and even though the elections are over. They're going to keep organizing in the state. Yeah this is awesome. And we've said a bunch of times and we know obviously we're not gonNA outspend our opposition Medicare for all movement is not going to like drop more dollars than health insurance industry plus the hospital industry pharmaceutical industry It's just not gonNA happen but you can see that those industries have no grass roots operation They don't have any on the ground field campaign all they can do is throw add camp ads at U both in social media and on TV And I think you know if I have to ask. I don't know exactly how many ads two hundred thousand dollars by buys made probably fewer during a presidential campaign during a primary state But with is is that moving people more two hundred thousand dollars in AD spending than an army of Medicare for all activists going out and having one on one conversations with tens of thousands of people. I'm pretty sure that our grand ground game was like stronger in this case in this state than the AD spending and this was happening in the south. Yeah we're seeing lots of parallels I think with the presidential election or the Democratic primary In terms of billionaires spending money on ads that are didn't them any delegates in South Carolina Bernie Sanders on the other hand having a huge grassroots army and winning and a place that he or not winning but getting pretty fair share of the vote in a place. He wasn't really expected to do well in. Yeah and I think that Another important feature this one. The president of the South Carolina F. L. C. I. O. So this is the labor federation for the whole state that includes all the labor unions wrote an op Ed in the lead up to the To the lead up to the vote in the Charleston Chronicle Basically saying South Carolina fell has stood for Medicare for all for a long long time This Charles Brave. He wrote We know that the present system of employer provided health care cannot be sustained. We need to take healthcare off the bargaining table and Medicare for all. We'll do that by severing the tie between access to healthcare and our jobs that will be an important part of strengthening the Labor movement. And we'll help make all workers and their families families live more stable and secure End Quote now. This is awesome because we just came off the heels of what happened in Nevada Where you know the culinary union kind of went rogue and I would remind folks the Nevada. Afl CIO is also supportive of Medicare for all which means the labor movement as a whole in. Nevada has voted on this supported. Medicare for all I think we've learned to get out ahead of this a little bit with the Labor Movement So there's not like one union who the press can all cover it and be like. Oh man this is a problem. Now for the Medicare for all movement. Yeah and this shift in Labour support for Medicare for all has been across the country totally a rank and file initiative that has made this possible I wanted to ask you more about the importance of like Medicare for all organizing in the south Because like you know one of the one of my things that I take out of this This primary more so than the other ones is that you know. We don't have the same social justice infrastructure in the south than we do in some other states and I think a lot of times the more Sort of traditional more conservative institutions. Have more power politically in the south. So I mean you're from Georgia I mean what does it mean to be? Sort of making some breakthroughs really organizing breakthroughs in the south and getting Traction Yeah. I love to see that people are organizing around A very progressive. 'cause like Medicare for all in the south. This isn't something that we would have seen. I think like ten years ago I think that the political reality that southerners face. It's a little bit difficult for people who've lived in the north or immoral leftist areas of the country to really understand What it's like to live in the South And I think that it makes it very difficult to be an unapologetic medicare for all supporter. Not just because of the way that other people will feel about it. If you come out as being Medicare for all but also it just feels so much less likely to happen when you know you're institutions at every level of government are. Republican led and very conservative and so by having. These sort of groundbreaking organizers coming out and paving away For Medicare for all. I think it's really helping to give people the permission to rally behind a progressive 'cause even when the stakes feel really against you in a red state right. And this is a state that has not expanded Medicaid. This is one of the few remaining that has not expanded Medicaid and to see that level of sort of support and fight for Medicare for all his awesome. Because it's like you know Yes we need to do the incremental things but it's not gonna be enough to really give us healthcare security or financial security. Yeah and a lot of the activism around healthcare and the South is tied up around expanding Medicaid so the fact that we have people who are also willing to come out for Medicare for all when you know an an really urgent feeling campaign like the Medicaid campaign is happening is also. It's so important. It's really and quick footnote. This campaign was run by South Carolina's airlines. The campaign is going to continue after the election. So this was not like a national organization. Parachuting in organizers to South Carolina so big props to deb Jones Douglas Institute So I think moving from Moving from that realm to the other big news of the week Shall we talk about Corona virus? You know we had to do it. It's got the corona virus. Should you get? I don't know what are the pluses and minuses. Not Having to come to work that's true. I would not want you and work with the terrible thing about our job though is even when you're sick shed. It's so easy to work from home doing our job. We have like a national organizing job so we have a lot of phone calls love email. I've had so few sick breaks same same but maybe if we get the current a virus. We won't even be able to look at our computers laptops so the House Ways and Means Committee had a hearing on the crow virus. Why is that important? Well because the trump administration is taking some of the funds from lots of other public health programs that are actually very very very important or not important to pay for Corona virus preparedness. So Alex's are the head of health and Human Services was brought before the House Ways and Means Committee and ask this important question about corona virus about only cover rotavirus related issues secretary. Can you talk about the financial impact for Medicare for all of what kind of impact it has potentially on seniors and middle class Americans that I serve in Indiana second district? It would be absolutely devastating. We've got one hundred and eighty million Americans who get their insurance through their employer or they're more importantly their union. Their insurance would be taken away. Collective bargaining rights that they have given up in exchange for insurance would be taken away without compensation and wages for sixty million seniors in Medicare. A third of them depend on private..
