"Jake, I spent Sunday after the crowded dispersed reading build back better the House version. I mean, I'm at page 800 now, taking notes. I've gotten two columns out of it. I could write columns forever. It's the most absurd thing, including my Washington Post column this morning is about $3 billion in equity, which is up to Tom vilsack. A canny politician who has run for president before to distribute if it gets to the Senate. How much are they gonna carve out of this in the Senate? Salt deduction of tree equity, a 122 billion for homeless funding. What's going to go? So that's a good question. I think the major things that's going to go through are not those things. I think the major things that are going to go are the big things that mansion does not like. I mean, Pelosi has basically indicated if you listen, you read between the lines that the bill is pretty much set besides for some of these big provisions which are obviously huge and quite influential that mansion is going to have problems with. So that includes expansion of Medicare, paid leave provisions, the stuff. I think the rest of it, the small stuff that people will pick at and will be kind of the stars of election season ads are going to stay. That's just my

"So Richard, you are your smart, much smarter than Nate silver. I say that every time you come on and you get things right, you do a terrific job and you're the best with polling and political predictions that I've seen, and so let's talk about what's happening in Virginia. Let's just kind of let's take this piece by piece. We got about ten minutes to go through this. Where was this race 6 months ago and how and why did it develop into the tight race it is today? Yeah, I mean, even a month ago, Charlie, you know, McCall, he was former democratic governor who left supposedly with an approval rating around 54%. This should really not have been a race of Virginia is even with the current climate, Virginia is, you know, had Joe Biden one at ten points, 54 44. What really is going on in the last 8 months or so 6 months, Democrats began to erode support in Virginia and it's coming from independence. The democratic base is a little leakage there, but it really is coming from independence in third party voters who supported Democrats last November. And at the end of the day, Glenn young turned the page almost at the perfect time. And it wasn't only him he had help, but the public education issues soared to the forefront and Democrats, the whole time throughout these last few months, wanted this to be about Medicare, expansion, Medicaid expansion. Trump, amazingly. And of course, about the pandemic response. And instead, Charlie, three out of the four top issues are Republican environment issues. So jobs in the economy is number one. Taxes inflation, cost of living is number two, and now three is public education. And four is coronavirus. So it just turned up a call of all the perfect storm. You know, I turned all the political stars aligned for junk and we see he's got to lead now. He

Charlie Kirk and Professor Ben Burgis Debate Medicare For All

"So you want Medicare for All. Yeah. Yet HHS is the largest civilian branch of our government. So as we have expanded Medicare as we've expanded Medicaid, it hasn't been means tested as you want. We have hundreds of thousands of desk workers that are doing the means testing. Are you qualified Medicare reimbursements? And so under your example idealistic the point is that Medicaid is a test can not have a generous social program without a massive bureaucratic and dare I say corrupt administrative state. Well, I think Woodrow Wilson would even say that. Well, you need the industry. You think I like Woodrow Wilson? The guy who probably got college professors. Well, okay. And a college president. So he's kind of in your truck world. Okay, trust me, neither of those things weren't any points for me. But I think that. That's fair. But I did Woodrow Wilson as the guy who resegregated the federal law at the federal bureaucracy after trust me. Integrated speech. Dabs in jail, nobody on the left is going to say Woodrow Wilson is a hero. Liberals. Nobody on the left. But I was just going to say I know plenty of people that would, but that's fine. I don't think you're going to find a lot of LBJ. All these people believed in a strong administration. Well, maybe you're rattled off a bunch of liberals, but that's okay. We don't need to argue about historical figures. Let's just say this. If you're talking about administrative state, bureaucracy. Well, your example is Medicaid, which is a means tested program. And even at that, even despite the means testing, which is the part that gives the bureaucrats their power, which is also the part of objected to, even despite that, we're talking about bureaucracies as I think you mentioned earlier, bureaucracy, the government has no monopoly of bureaucracy as plenty of bureaucracies in the private sector. And if you want to know which programs have the smallest overhead, right? Even Medicaid, even despite the needs tested, Medicaid, Medicare, all of those have much smaller administrative overhead that any of the private insurance companies because the private insurance companies one, they have to plan out their strategy for competing with each other. And two, the private insurance companies have a vast bureaucracy that is dedicated to finding ways to deny people's claims because they've always got one eye on the bottom line for

"medicare" Discussed on Medicare for All

"Hearing is also going to be the accent which we can undercut the medicare advantage. Plans and sort of nudge that the private insurance out of the market that they take in from traditional medicare and this is the reason a lot of people choose medicare advantage. Plans is because they do sometimes include these dental vision and hearing so few baked that into traditional medicare along with other improvements to traditional public medicare. We can start eliminating the reasons that people go for these medicare advantage plans which are privatizing the system that we want to expand every we talked about last week. I mean yes medicare advantage plans. Do offer are often dental and vision. But they're not even good coverage either and so one of the things that i think is going to be great if we can add dental vision and hearing into medicare is that medicare advantage is going to have to mirror. All of the benefits that traditional medicare has. That's like part of the agreement right. They can't just like leave out. Whatever dental and hearing traditional medicare is covering him so it in some ways it creates like a standard. That's going to be even if a senior does choose to go on a medicare advantage plan. They will still at least able to get the dental vision. And hearing that has been the bar has been set by traditional medicare and apparently the head is part of the body as well so all those things are good things to have traditional medicare. What about the prescription drug negotiation piece that we've been asking about. Yeah so the other thing. That's very likely to be included in. The budget is some form of medicare negotiation of prescription drugs again. The devil's in the details. There's a fight shaping up within the democratic caucus in the senate about whether medicare will be given real powers negotiate. Drug prices right..

"Of reducing. the medicare age down to fifty five. So ben why do we have. These strange bedfellows yet. These when these letters came out from the house and the senate it was really eye opening for medicare for all folks in kind of weird because a lot of democrats who are staunchly. Kind of opposed to medicare for all this letter. Asking to expand medicare to cover all these benefits to negotiate drug prices to lower the age of medicare which you'd think if you kind of follow the logic of why these are all good reforms you end up at a medicare for all position if you have the same values right. So that was eye opening The the house the house letter. Four lead signers to them or mecca for all spurs to rinat that include privilege. I paul you know the leads. 'em who is kind of like the poster child for democratic centralism in the united states. I guess um in how we you know. You can't run on medicare for all. It's going to derail the democrats chances of winning and then in the house. I the senate letter had seventeen signers. Seven of them are not medicare for all supporters. So i've been trying to make sense of this different theories and which theory you believe in depends on how cynical. Maybe you are about politics. But i think it's actually kind of important for the chances of medicare for all in winning over this kind of group of senators who signed this letter. So tell me what you think about this stephanie. You're gonna have to weigh in the end ear. This baffling so i'm intrigued. All right by your all right. i'm gonna make it easy for you. Multiple choice okay. Choice number one. Is that a lot of these. Democrats these centrist democrats who signed on are actually not deeply in the pocket of the healthcare industry This would be good. News for medicare for all actually. But they're avoiding medicare for all because they legitimately see it as a liability in their district. Maybe they live in a swing district like hunter lamb does. Maybe it's more suburban exurban rural. Maybe it's wider as more conservative or whatever. So maybe they're just making a political calculation theory. Number two is that these democrats actually are in the pocket of the healthcare industry. You can tell. We're getting more cynical as we go. But maybe they're in the pocket of one particular branch of the healthcare industry but not all of them. You would think that if you're in the pocket of the pharmaceutical industry for example you would not support allowing medicare to negotiate drug prices but maybe the.

"So you can buy a medicare advantage plan or meta gap plan that does but not you won't get through traditional medicare and this is one of the things that's a little bit politically difficult because you know for democrats. They all politicians they. They wanna brag about what they have added with a given to you. It's something that voters will remember the next time they go to the to the ballot box. That hey you know. Democrats gave us dental and then prestigious vision but an out of pocket cap. It's kind of a little bit of a wonky thing and also it has the potential to save someone from really catastrophic costs if they get into if they become very sick but most people probably won't experience the benefits of it between now and november or twenty twenty two or whatever so So it's it's one of those things that has a that that's really a huge hole but maybe not as felt exactly by everybody the same way. This is the thing that made me want to quit politics. It's like it's like politics. They're having a hard time in congress getting this out of pocket thing to have traction the same way that Dental vision hearing does just. Because it's not as sexy of a cell. That's not like oh. We gave this thing to seniors but it is the thing that stopped seniors from going bankrupt. It's actually equally. if if not more important. The last thing that of the four items were fighting for here in the medicare expansion is to let medicare finally negotiate drug prices. This is something. Democrats have been claiming that they were gonna fight for for decades now during the affordable care. Act they've famously. Decided not to. They had this compromise with pharmaceutical companies. Which we won't get into but it was a total mess but this would finally do that. And it's actually important because leading medicare negotiate. Drug prices would save. You know up to four fifty billion dollars over the next ten years. That's a lot of cheddar. And you actually use that money to pay for the medicare expansion that we just talked about. Yeah so those are basically the four things that We could possibly get as soon as august when the bill Is actually going through reconciliation. So again you know. These calls for expansion have been building not just from the grassroots but also inside of congress right since biden released his american stanley planning surprisingly many house and senate democrats said. Hey this actually isn't good enough. And that's centrist included even going so far as to write a letter from each chamber pressuring biden to include these reforms that we just discussed Including estimates actually of how many people would obtain coverage all the way down to fifty five. So there were some implicit in these letters. That these centers democrats wrote to biden pressuring him to sort of adapt. these These reforms and pass them or sign..

"Under new bill will include adjustments in the global budgets specifically being able to address times of pandemic in crisis on really want to ensure not only do the hospital all the funding. They need that are scrambling they were here. We saw a nonprofit hospitals closing across the country times of pandemic with a global budget system. That will not happen and we can also ensure that went funding going out so we saw billions of dollars from cares. It's not going to just go to the highest proper hospitals. We're going to ensure an equitable distribution especially to our safety net in rural hospitals. So that's really wanted also benefits at the global budgets. Yeah this is such a wonky topic will budgets and payments and stuff but it is actually it has such a huge effect on equity like you were just explaining and i think that that's just a really important thing to point out that a lot of clinics that actually do serve underserved community. I mean they are under served because they're not financed to the same extent. And this you know the fact that we would do a global budget would actually be transformative for for the clinics that serve underserved communities so quick question here about the senate. Bill is the senate bill being dropped together. So we had hoped for a joint introduction Senator centers is absolutely very supportive. Our roll out in the next couple of weeks. I'll let their office respond. Or if you like to. John asking inquiring about their rollout date by route. We have worked very closely together in terms of bill tax and i know that they are hoping to also introduce in the near future. And there's another question. Now i can't find. I can't find the person who asked to pull it up on the screen here. But i think i saw a couple of questions about hearing. So is there a strategy yet around hearings or have. Y'all just sort of been getting the bill ready we've been hopefully during both on this critical i mean i. I'll highlight that. I think this congress is really unique opportunity to really build up the grass roots in the ground. Game on medicare for on expand our coalition. But let's not forget about the inside We established in incredible precedent for legislative conversation on medicare for all they really can't editor how important this is in the last congress we have four congressional hearings on medicare for all why is important. While the last time any senator congressperson had a discussion on single payer. It's been several decades since that happened specifically on medicare for all legislation. It's never happened being able to participate in bursts. Bottling congress members to participate in that conversation to have a real policy substantive debate about it is really informed him so we need to continue that momentum. We have a commitment from the small business committee. Chairman of alaska's on it to hold a hearing on medicare crying and you know we have congresswoman..

"Health equity within the medicare for all system that would march keep track of all patient data making sure that we are setting equity benchmarks and have to be hit in actually putting teeth behind that to ensure that they're being enacted and then lastly also note for anyone who is either currently in the military or enlisted. There is a separation of try cares. Public direct care system was similarly at the va ihs medicare for all bill previously left the va in ihs system out just to clarify people who are in the va ihs are able to access. Both of the a or i and medicare for all instead our doing that. Similarly rick strikers public care system so i had another question for you about the progressive caucus so the progressive caucus the house is. It's got to be one of the biggest. If not the biggest caucuses in the house but notoriously has had a hard time wielding its own power or its own leverage to kind of move the democratic caucus. I think in the way that for a number of years the blue dog democrat caucus was actually really effective. You know leveraging that handful of votes to kind of move legislation to the right in certain directions. And i mean we do actually have blue dots members who are supportive medicare for also. They're not like right on every issue so i is also the chair of the progressive caucus. So it's great. We have that kind of overlap. What changes is rep. Giac paul sort of leading around the progressive caucus. And do you think it's going to have an impact around the medicare for all fight in congress absolutely. I think this is really important to talk about on. Because when we think through the infrastructure we need to build both on the outside in the grassroots movement but also on the inside to ensure that we actually have lovers that we can fool to advance medicare for all. This is really critical for the cbc to be able to actualize operationalized that so. This was a huge priority for congressman giant.

"It's also not going to be enough in any district to just have kind of even a strong left. So i think we're gonna need a strong left but we're also gonna need this much brought. There has to be a space in this movement for a lot of people who are not sort of strongly ideologically aligned so yup and that brings us to. I feel like another challenge. That sort of bore out through this analysis right as we move from a progressive left movement. The progressive left has taken us to where we are in this movement to a place where we can really start to think about some of the endgame stuff an s so as we move from that to like trying to build a broad-based truly majority movement. I foresee challenges with the coalitions. I think we're going to have to organize people as you say politically aligned with the full slate of progressive positions and we'll have to enter into coalition with people who aren't always leftists and we're going to have to also find ways to talk to people about positions that are going to be necessary for us to win so for example abortion as in the bill and abortion is very unapologetically in the bill. Not only does it guarantee abortions everybody but it also guarantees that s going to be taxpayer-funded and undocumented immigrants are included in this bill and you know it's a total totally redistributive policy of acting progressive tax that people hey according to their ability.

"I think two senators both senators there. That are not on the bill. There's just the state work is also we have. We've almost feel like as movement. We haven't even gotten there yet because we're still working on building up in the district but the state work is also essential for us to actually win medicare for all the truth just attack on really quickly because we've had a democratic majority in the house in the past period of time and not in the senate. Our whole movement has really been focused on the house more. I think because we you. Can you can win incremental things like getting hearings on your bills. When they're democrats. Are the chairs the senate we've been neglecting that has to end starting the session and that's going to be another big ship. We're gonna have to make this year citing so ben. This was a lot of information. I'm wondering can super wagging but super interesting. I wonder if we can distort a zone in on like one or two states just to give sort of a case study in give sort of an example of what we're talking about here. Sure you know. There's a few states that are really strongly exemplify how the district's with sponsors are really different from the district's need to win co sponsors and i picked one of them which is just new york new york state. That isn't it not new york city and very briefly if you look at new york last year. New york had fourteen co-sponsors on the bill in the house. But when you look at who those. Fourteen co sponsors are in which districts they represent. Nine of those districts were majority people of color districts and all of them were in new york city all except for three of them and two of the arrest represented like buffalo albany. So they're still pretty urban areas and then also at the end of last session. New york state had seven democrats. Who were not co sponsors of the medicare for all bills so this is represents the like the rest of the road that we now have to travel to win and of the seven districts. All of them were majority whites and only two were kind of heavily. Urban one was on staten island. The other was rochester. The rest of those district's were heavily suburban heavily rural they were much more politically contested with the gop. Three of them were swing districts and actually two of them flipped republican just in this last election cycle so that i hope paints a little bit more of a detailed picture of like why things are going to have to look different with our organizing going forward. You can't just repeat the types of organizing and the places we've been doing organizing that we've been doing for the last x. Number of years rules out separately. I wonder rochester any of those. I don't want to argue rochester. I think we should be able to win. Rochester to incite. Change it okay. That was sobering. While i think we should. It was just so much information i mean. What are our takeaways from this presentation. I guess for me. I think that this might be also very obvious. Thank you to people of color and women of color in particular for holding up our bill. Can i give a shout out especially to ion presley who in massachusetts we have nine cosponsors and only two of them. So far have actually a committed to be original cosponsors on this next iteration of the bill. And that is jim mcgovern and i honestly and that's just so important for us because it helps us you know..

"We have organized. So far are swing districts in. That could be part of this logic that you know detroit. C is pushing that you cannot run america for all if you wanna win a swing district so the remaining the next hundred eighteen district's we need to get on board where we had democrats last year. Who were not on board about. A third of them were swing districts. Interpreting swing pretty. Broadly as could go. Republican could go democrat. And that doesn't mean you know that. The democrats in those districts are any less progressive. I could just be that. There's bigger independent bases. That republicans are stronger in those districts. So that's another thing to bear in mind. We are going into a really different political terrain in the next districts that we need to organize and similar if you look at margin of victory. Democrats have these huge margin of victory in the. We have organized compared to the other ones that we're going to have to organize and then just look at the demographics of the legislators themselves who were on board the bill at the end of last session versus the democrats were not on board. i looked at gender. And there's actually no gender difference between male and female reps which kinda surprised me. I thought maybe women would be more like sport medicare for all than men but when you look at race different story so of the of our co sponsors at the end of last year more than half of them where people of color were let necks are black or asian or indigenous and that is way out of proportion with the press the representations of people of color in congress. Let me tell you it really means that bass. Disproportionately the medicare for all bill is being held up by leaders of color in the house of representatives. And it's a really different picture when you look at the next hundred. Eighteen co sponsors. We need to get on board. Those democrats haven't signed on about two thirds of them are actually white and only a minority A third of them are people of color. And i won't go all the way into this. This is one of the things. If you're really like data you can. You can look pull up the slide show and take a deep die but i did race and gender and it turned out that women of color in congress way way way hands above everyone else the most likely to because the bill and were really disproportionately holding up the bill and white women in congress were the least likely to be co sponsors of the bill and i think we saw something like this just in this past election cycle or i guess every election cycle where women of color voters are kind of the most reliable democratic voters and basically enabled the democratic party to win elections at all. So and this is how repay them..

"Without science and medicine in fact science and medicine are part of our part of the systems and the power structures that created the evidence. And i'm putting all the codes around that for those. Who can we hear me right Of creating the evidence to say that this was this was true and therefore this is what we should do about it With that would then mean overtime is us having racialized diseases An example of this like in history is for the audience who doesn't know draped dementia the idea that of if an enslaved black person wanted to escape right onto their freedom the fact that they wanted that indicated some sort of mental issue right that that was a that was a disease to once your freedom right to want to be able to escape right like the institutions slavery So from the korean racialized diseases to then also segregated health systems which is like woods. Got us here today. Right like talking about medicare for all the structuring of these segregated health systems. That said we're going to give enough care to keep you alive so that you can do what we want you to do with you. Not having the ability to determine what the nature of that work is or how you when your own life like to be right like that keeping people alive enough right. That is something that was achieved through our healthcare system by in the legacy of our healthcare system and arguably exactly what we're talking about today right into if i if we don't get a medicare for all. Then what are we doing where people were keeping people alive enough right And so then you know these. These are the ways then You know health and science and medicine have helped to keep this alive. So how has that legacy carried through to the present day and specifically what does structural racism in the health insurance and the health care system. Look like now. I think you know i mean i is would be so much more better to answer this question because you know like the details of it were more but the the legacy of it today can be thought of both in terms of like the concept of medical desserts right so that we have segregated space and because we have segregated spaces that his connected to Housing systems in this country and practices such as redlining right the active decision to exclude people from People of color specifically you know black person from some neighborhoods and then also to create like so other neighborhoods that You know were dopp predominantly white folks and this structuring being done because there was so much of an investment in tanning land value right so getting the connection between raise and property rights and capital that the current like is connected. Getting back to. We're talking about here about the structural racism that shows up in healthcare systems. Today are set. Our efforts to to segregate space have also been meant that we don't value certain space because we don't value the people that live there so we don't put much needed health care resources in those areas so that those areas are not going to have to hospitals those areas are not gonna have clinics and then we have the second layer of what they do have access to how the healthcare system itself is so segregated. So there's different types of care that people are getting in one part of the healthcare system versus another park right Which is like you know ultimately which makes like sometimes people in the ways that people can vote against their own self interest. Like you know. They don't want medicare for all because they don't wanna lose what they have it's like do you know where you fall on this line like in this light would it be like redrawn. You know you wouldn't get access to something much better than what you have so structural racism that also determined that live right and then also in terms of the lack of diversity in the workforce across all spaces because we know that in healthcare. We have different. They're all not all healthcare. Workers have the same power right not all healthcare workers have the same like social capital right and this is not to take away from the power that they do have i especially cuny health workers or nurses but then there's a certain status for example that's given to doctors that's not given to others so that you're going to have more diversity in like the less desired in quotes right Health like professions and how that is also a legacy of structural racism your discussion about spaces and certain people being in and out it reminded me of dean robinson's analysis of the employment based healthcare system. That we do have which just replicates the inequities of the labor market. And so if you're inside and you have this sort of good jobs high paying job then you're going to have good health insurance and if you don't then you're outside of it and it's just sort of this double whammy right where And that's how we end up in a place where Black people are twice as likely to be uninsured as whites and latinos are actually three times as likely to be uninsured as whites and of course women are more likely to depend partner for mirren's that they would get through their job And so there are so many ways in which sort of i think. Structural racism appears in the health insurance system and then on top of that the medical system. And and just you know just having so if we were I love i love how you brought it up as being a part of like you said like how insurance is even divided up right because every system that you like. Every microsystem did the larger healthcare system. You can analyze racial equity lens and see how it ultimately gets divided between the idea of who's deserving and who's not deserving right which gets back to like one of the fundamental building blocks of this country who is free and who is not free who is who is the owner right so whenever you're reading something that is like designed to be inclusive and then specifically designed to not be inclusive based on like You know ideas of race You're gonna see structural racism and you know and arguably like we're talking about right here in this podcast..

"I am benjamin day. I'm stephanie nakajima and this is medicare for all the podcast for everybody who needs healthcare so today. We're gonna discuss a topic that is central to our success in winning medicare for all when we as a movement talk about what it's going to take to win often when you hear issues like fundraising publication electing the right. Legislators there's other things that usually come up. But i think there's something that maybe even more important than any of those things putting us on the path to victory and that is of course confronting the deeply ingrained racism and our structures and cells. When you look at where. The united states is in compared in comparison to its pure countries. It's impossible to explain why we are so much more of an unequal and capitalist society than everywhere else that looking at the role of racism through our history <hes>. Its impact on our safety net and the neglect and vilification of our public programs. So this is like a big conversation and we could probably have several podcasts on it but today we want to talk about racism specifically in the healthcare system and how medicare for all would and wouldn't address in a racism at the doctor's office and and then a little bit about the interrelated nature of our movements a movement with the larger fight for racial justice. And why and how. They are interconnected so ben. Do you want to introduce our guest absolutely so it is my great pleasure to introduce the wonderful person on the screen with us <hes>. Dr beata amani. Who is an associate professor for. The charles r drew university of medicine and science and <hes>. This is a timely is a lead co chair of the covid nineteen taskforce on racism and equity which is housed at the ucla center for study of racism social justice and health. Welcome dr money. I'm so excited to be here. It is great to have you so before we dive into this deep topic <hes>. Can you tell us a little bit about your background. And why did you choose to become an epidemiologist with a focus on racism and what is epidemiology. So i mean that's a that's a wonderful question. Just what is an epidemiologist. Because i think for so many people. My friend circle in my family <hes>. This current moment had them <hes>. Here in the word and being like <hes>. Isn't one of those. So epidemiology is essentially like the science and the studying of the disease distribution pattern the the distribution patterns of disease <hes> and anything associated with z's <hes>. And it's not only about studying the the distribution and the pattern of disease and its related outcomes but it's also about studying the things that go into effect right the things that are in place the policies and practices that we have what are the effects of those things on the distribution of disease disease-related outcomes. So what that meant for me <hes>. I think growing up was. I always loved <hes>. Health and i loved politics <hes>. And i was always thinking about the relationship between these two things <hes>. And so when. I know you're thinking about how to have some sort of impact especially as a young person <hes>. And you hear about like institutions. Like the cdc or the who right <hes>. You really can you know. Start to give a sense of like. What does it mean to be able to like. Go out and steady and to collect information that can be so useful that it can actually save. Lives like on a larger level. These are to me that young person you know who was really drawn to like the field of setting in a deniau genes that then overtime epidemiology. That also came to me a tool set and a set of ideas that belonged to and we're a service of a system that <hes>. Not only structured by racism. Right like us. Stephanie mentioned beginning at the heart of what we're talking about today <hes>. But also was instrumental in structuring it and and creating and maintaining that <hes>. And so then what that meant for me. Somebody who was studying it was that i was really drawn initially to infectious disease epidemiology <hes>. Because you saw so much like an equity <hes>. And also just they kind of racialized ideas about populations being generated around who's sick. Who's not risk of people who are not sick from those. Who are you know. So all those racial congregations <hes>. And then moving into what we call behavioral. Fb and the idea that <hes> people's behaviors and they're like and and you know people's behaviors and their own actions can be connected and related to their health. So there's a potential for some sort of empowerment right to what i am. I think you know today like loosely. <hes>. and specifically your social epidemiologist. Somebody who wants to study the distribution of disease and disease related factors <hes>. In populations and communities on basant understanding systems structures in power

"Their union and at very engaged in their union and so when they're you know they're union told them. That Bernie Sanders would. Cause them to lose their health plan I think the union really expected that the members would would flock to that position and do the do the right thing. which was not to vote for Bernie Sanders in that situation. But. Guess what? These workers and thanks. May you know in many ways to the kind of activism that the union had always promoted them on them? These workers saw through that and realized. You know that they are part of a working class that they you know. They have friends and family. and neighbors whose benefits are not guaranteed by the strong union contract that they were able to achieve, and they also realized how precarious their own benefits were, because it was dependent on the fact that they were employed by particular casino and were members of a particular union and so. Majorities of these workers members of the Culinary Union. In the primary actually voted for Bernie Sanders and did so because they supported Medicare for all, and that was a real wakeup call I think for for labor leaders around the country. You know we didn't have the same kind of dynamic in south. Carolina, one of the reasons is unions. Don't play the. Central role in democratic politics that the culinary plays in Las Vegas but you know the it was an in fact in some ways. The argument was a lot easier to put before. Union workers in South Carolina because. Unions don't have the density and the strength that they do in Las Vegas. They already knew how precarious their healthcare was. Their employer's constantly hammering at it, and comparing their healthcare to the rest of the South Carolina, working class that had little or no healthcare so I think the argument actually was easier to make in South Carolina, Bernie and do good in South Carolina but over sixty percent of Democratic primary voters. Supported Medicare for all in south. Carolina so You know I think we've won that argument among Working People and I think the Labor movement has. Begun to wake up to that fact, you know a lot of times you talk union leaders and they'll say. Oh, yeah, you know. I support Medicare for all, but the members aren't ready for it. They want you know they they wanNA keep a whole lot to their health. Insurance plans that we just can't go to the members with this issue, so the members have come to them now and show them the way forward and I think that it's really changed..

"Think it was January, maybe December. titled. Take my benefits. Please Wyoming. Based healthcare is an anchor around the neck of the US working class You know and you know that that people would celebrate this crazy system that we have. That links employment healthcare to employment. So if you lose your job, you lose your healthcare. If you go on strike, you can lose your healthcare. If you get sick. You often lose your care You know it's just outrageous. And you know and also oblivious to the fact that for a entire generation, healthcare has been the biggest cause of strikes and lockouts and concession bargaining. with unionized employers, the workers who are lucky enough to even have a say in what kind of health care that they get, and you know a constant deterioration in the standards for all working class Americans so. It was just such a UP. Outrageous way to frame it and you know I think that that's talking points that were developed by. You know people who have a real stake in the system for profit. Industry who are very smart about this idea about that sociologists call loss, aversion that people are often more motivated by the fear of losing something that they have rather than the hope of gaining something that they need and so the Way To manipulate people's thoughts. We I like to joke that. The only people the only thing people hate worse than their health insurance company is the fear of being without any health insurance, and that's the kind of way that loss loss aversion plays on people. Don't. Medicare recipients you know saying this Medicare for all is going to mean that you're gonNA. Lose your Medicare because everybody will have Medicare. It's like you know you don't think it's GonNa work, but it works AH. This pernicious way of of manipulating people's deepest fears and insecurities So that's you know that's the way they played it. And I was actually struck with how. People rejected that formulation and you know and I. You know I. think that that's what really means that you know this is an idea whose time has come. Because if you look at the polling, no matter who people voted for. A majority of primary voters believe in and support Medicare for all even in the face of these kind of nasty. Industry as talking points and so this this is really kind of cleared a.

"This illustrates how wonderful marketplace solutions are to healthcare coverage. I mean the whole idea of the exchanges was like yeah the market will offer you better options and you know lower prices But the the reason that they even have enrollment periods. Where it's like. You can only enroll at a certain time of the year in the exchange is because they're attempting to crack down on what they call free riders people who like we'll wait until they get sick and will then enroll in exchange plan and then as soon as they're better will disin- role and stop paying premiums And they don't want to just cover you when you need it So this is the whole reason that they created these things but of course we are in the middle of a pandemic. I think you actually do want to cover people when they against sick and we WANNA pay for it collectively as a society. That's the whole goal so it's just like another yet. Another layer of how all of the incentives of market base system are run exactly opposite to what you need to do to address a pandemic but also really just to provide healthcare to society. So I think there is a way we can all give back. We like to close with some sort of an action step And I want to give some love to our postal office workers Postal Service Workers So this is a situation. People might not know about but Obviously Postal Service workers are one of these front line jobs who are just like highly at risk of of of of contracting. Toronto Virus But keep showing up to work. Keep doing their job But the postal service itself is in danger of going under a basically going bankrupt according to some projecting projections The USPS could run out of money as early as June and. The reason is of course that Use of the postal services just plummeted during this economic crisis A lot of businesses are dropping their use of of the postal service just because they're going under or temporarily suspending their operations But their costs have actually been going up to keep the service running but also to address all the the needs of of protecting their workers. So there's two way too important ways where this overlaps with Medicare for all one is that people don't always think about this but the postal service is actually a very important part of our healthcare system Because they deliver prescription drugs to your house. Lots of people get mail order prescription drugs especially people in rural areas especially older people in central service with or without that is essential service and they were actually created in the US Constitution having a postal services considered foundational part of of our country. It's also one of the people are actually like staying in touch with each other while they're isolated in their homes but another thing and this is something that a lot of people don't know about. Is that useful service? Receives Zero Tax dollars? They're fully funded by the stamps that you buy but they have been financially hemorrhaging since two thousand six but only because of a bill passed by Congress so Congress in two thousand six that requires the postal service to prefund retiree. Healthcare costs seventy five years in advance. This means they have to estimate what their retiree health care. Costs are going to be seventy five years from now and they have to have that money in the bank. Right now So it it causes an immediate financial crisis. Obviously no business in the country in the world is required to do this or does do this. Even if they're being very fiscally sound you know. How do you even project? Healthcare costs seventy five years into the future. I'm not sure we're going to have healthcare system in seventy five years so if you have experienced if you had bad experiences at your post office in the last fifteen years like maybe you've had to wait in long lines or something. This is the reason why Basically postal workers who haven't even been born yet higher having their retirements fully-funded exactly. Yeah this is like four generations in advance Because of that they post office immediately had to do staffing reductions they had to shorten their operation So this is why we have these long waits in the post office so do not blame your post office. Blame Congress And so this you know they were already pushed to the brink by this weird health care requirement that was imposed on them. And obviously if we had medicare for all they wouldn't have to prefund retiree healthcare costs because they're retirees would be covered so there is a petition out there to demand that Congress Support the Postal Service The relief bill that passed Did Not include any support or Or you know funds to help the postal service keep going even though all these other industries got bailouts like you know the other like infrastructure industries like You know like the air airline services so We're GONNA send you guys. Were put a link in the show notes But you can also just look for you know. Tell Congress during this pandemic support our postal service our public postal service and there's a petition up on the Action Network that we really encourage you to sign and we want to stand in solidarity with our brothers and sisters in the.

"Right here this is not about politics kiss is a health. Emergency can't wait. I have some theoretical face about the better. Well never ever. We have been reporting on prepaid daily in Europe and this matter of medical care Ross position that means you have a right to come to my house and conscripts believe in slavery lever. I'm Benjamin Day Stephanie Nakajima and this is Medicare for all the podcast for everybody who needs healthcare except for Michael Bloomberg Mike Bloomberg. What did he do this time? So so as you know. He's been running for president. You don't say I wish he was running out or something so elevated profile a little bit yeah and the. DNC has changed the rules so that he can participate and the next thing Without having as reaching reaching the threshold for donors That previous candidates had had to meet to attend the debates. I'm glad we're making some provision for billionaires because we haven't done enough for them yet in this country I think we should really ease their way into the process. All Right I agree with cutting Mike Bloomberg out of the Medicare for all coverage. I feel like usually I think that it's a solid solid Eric Policy. That everybody should have it. You know well like in Scandinavian countries whether rich or poor but if you can buy your way into the democratic debate stage then you can buy your own damn healthcare and besides we're cutting at least one personnel each week during the someone's gotTa go So speaking of the primaries as we are recording this the Iowa caucuses just just started today. So I mean it feels like this. Election has already been going on forever but in reality the election is just now starting. Today's recording this You'll be listening to it on Tuesday after the caucuses finished And if you're lucky enough to live in Iowa or one of these primary states not only are you just drowned out submerged with advertisements from the candidates but The Partnership for America's Healthcare Future Future. which is the like Orwellian slash dystopia phrase that That has come up. They come up with for the coalition that it was created basically to defeat Medicare for all so this is the Health Insurance Industry Pharma. This is the for profit hospitals. This is the Chamber of Commerce All of the powers of a line to try and undermine Medicare for all and they are actually also spending hundreds of thousands of dollars running ads in the primary states. It's and We thought we would actually Take a short break from all these candidates and talking about the candidates running for office and like like put a little bit of focus on the Partnership for America's healthcare future and how they're trying to undermine Medicare fraud shoe. Listen to this ad or sure. Okay Get ready to enjoy some good old fashioned advertising. We come from different walks of life but we agree on one important thing. We don't want WanNa be forced into a one-size-fits-all government insurance system. The politicians may call it medicare for all medicare buying or the public option. But they mean the same thing a higher taxes or higher premiums lower quality care politicians and bureaucrats in control of our health care. We can't afford one size. Fits all planned and we need to fix. What's broken? Start over so What was your first take? That was like a lot a lot of gobbledygook thrown at us in the span of thirty seconds. Every single possible talking point smashed into thirty seconds sometimes sometimes repeated two or three times. You know you don't you shouldn't be afraid of one. Size fits all healthcare. I don't know if you've ever had it before. It's like a ill-fitting sweater sweater. You know. When I lived in England everyone basically does have the same healthcare and it turns out? The comprehensive healthcare fits every single person. AH regardless of your body size. That's right. I mean every single person has a body. So I kind of like the idea of one-size-fits-all home insurance. No the name of this. This ad which you can see on Youtube is called same thing and actually what they're arguing. I think the main argument of the AD is that Medicare for all is the same exact thing as a medicare buy in and a public option. So why the hell are they renting this in in primary states like Iowa and what's the point of like conflicting those those two. I wonder any any expansion of public health insurance. is perceived to be threat. I think which is a strategic mistake on on their part I think because it rather than co opting One of the more more corporate solutions like a public option. They A. They'd rather just go all in against any sort of reform which I think is going to backfire on them. Yeah I mean they've they've stated that one of their goals the partnership schools is to keep Medicare for all and public option off of the Democratic Party Platform Twenty twenty which seems very unlikely given that every candidate it under stages backing one of those two And I I guess it's confusing to me like WH- every debate medicare for all. Is the number one issue in the presidential in and the democratic debate and all in the main thing they talk about is how different. Their healthcare plans are So people are constantly exposed. The huge gap between a Medicare medicare for all proposal and a public option. Buying and these guys are like running ads swimming upstream like trying to convince you that basically they're the same thing Another thing that struck me in there. I mean. Do you think that this is GonNa work. Like who are they trying to help one candidate win. Or what do you think. The goal is ultimately Emilia running these ads targeted at Democratic primary states. Yeah whatever their plan is It's not actually working all. The ads have not only failed to really make a dent in public opinion about single payer but they've also failed to prevent The more you're liberal candidates like Sanders and Warren. From doing well in Iowa on factor in fact sanders is surging right now And in two thousand sixteen trump won the IRA fifty one to forty one. And if the polling today is correct If you know we were in the general and Iowa was voting. Today he'd win by a smaller smaller margin against any Democratic candidate reforming from you know the public option. Democrats to the all out Medicare for all Democrats Democrats by only six point spread Went up against you know Sanders or Warren So what is the lesson here. Money can't buy you love. Yeah they haven't won my love yet. I wonder I mean the other thing that's interesting is they're kind of they're they're imposing the same. They're they're trying to punish certain candidates for running on these issues But they're imposing the same costs on candidate support Medicare for all and a public option. So there's there's really no disincentive for Democrats to support Medicare for all and it's also I think a lesson about how you know. I think the Democrats who are pushing a public option. They're saying thing. Hey look this more moderate choice. It's not GonNa get the full opposition of the healthcare industry right We're just going to tinker around the edges. We're going to expand access a little that we're gonNA try and do things here and there to not make healthcare right but to like expand coverage Maybe make things a little less horrible But they are actually really triggering the full opposition of the healthcare industry the same exact Resources and money and messaging that Medicare will fight gets So the establishment government is going to have to come up with another reason to taxing pair over a public option because in terms of political feasability I don't really see an advantage advantage anymore. Exactly this gets to the core. The most common pushback we hear on Medicare for all his political feasibility. And that's like a reason to do a public option instead it turns out that there's the same existential crisis in the healthcare industry. That and I mean it's worth remembering. The partnership is not just the health insurance industry. It's also also Pharma. It's also hospitals. It's also chambers of commerce and all of these groups have agreed to fight a public option equally to fighting Medicare for all so much so that they're running ads trying to convince you that the same exact thing which is incredible to me so next? We're going to look at it. A couple of ads been run. Also attacking Medicare for all Again I think premised on the notion that you can get something politically after going after Democrats for Medicare for all and or the public option. Same thing if you didn't the same exact thing And in this case we're looking at two Senate races in Kansas and Michigan So in Michigan Senator Gary Peters is being attacked by this pack called Better Future Michigan a right wing pack and in Kansas Barbara bully a a sitting. US Senator is being attached attacked by a Republican Competitor who's running for a seat Named Susan Weigl who is the current And this is incredible to me. She's the current Senate president of the State Senate in Kansas And we're GONNA listen to her at first because it is just almost unbelievable I'm I'm so sad you can. We cannot give you guys the graphics of this individual imagery. But we'll try and describe to you so I'm going to play that now. It's called socialized. Medicine also known as Medicare for all the government decides what doctor you can see when you can see Dr. It's expensive leads to long waits and about as efficient and your local DMV DMV and this is the Healthcare Warren Sanders Eos and Barbara Bully. Want to give you Susan. My family like many other families his hand. Our share of healthcare battles are manuals instilled in me a strong on commitment to provide a healthcare system.

"This is a whole right here. This is not about politics. This is about health emergencies. Can't wait brought to have some theoretical face about the better idea. Well never ever we behind. Every Humphry Humphry pretty nearly in Europe. And this matter of medical care Ross innocent. I'm physician that means you have a right to come to my house and conscripts me means you believe in slavery. Anyway I am Benjamin Day and I'm Stephanie Nakajima and this is Medicare for all the podcast for everybody everybody who needs healthcare except rampal. Yeah except for Rand Paul. Wait a minute why not ripple the Rand Paul was the voice that you just heard in the intro reasonably pointing out that universal healthcare is actually just like slavery. Oh my God we can definitely out for this system. He's a doctor right right. He can take care of himself. Maybe Canada will have pity on him. He can apply. So we're here. We're making podcast. This is a little bit crazy but Stephanie. Why why don't you tell me? Why did you get into this Movement for Medicare for all I spent several years either underinsured or just totally uninsured until I basically moved to a country that had universal health care I moved to Tokyo in two thousand ten about I walked into City Hall to register stirrer my residency in the word and I was asked while I was destroying if I need health insurance which is like Oh are you handing that out and it turns turns out that they were I had no idea before I moved there that you could just sign up for health insurance in Japan. I'd been used to working jobs in the United States. That didn't give you health health insurance and I came to view it as a luxury item Even though I actually really needed health insurance I had asthma And my the second shock after realizing leising that could sign up for a public health insurance in Japan was that you don't pay a set premium and Japan so you pay just a percentage of your income and and at that point I was unemployed. I just moved there and so I got a full comprehensive public insurance. It wasn't like a bronze plan or like Shit it plan or whatever for the equivalent of twenty dollars a month. Now I'm here I don't know why no I'm the director of communications at healthcare. Now the National Grassroots Welfare Organization. Even though I was really comfortable in Tokyo with health insurance and I wasn't sure what was GonNa Happen with the affordable care act I my friends and my family Identity was still American and I wanted to come back and fight for them And Fuck up the insurance companies so ben tell me tell me about you. I also want to fuck up insurance comedies comedies because my story I actually got screwed over when I had health insurance I didn't lack insurance and I actually had decent health insurance I've been living in upstate. New York And I ended up Being admitted to the hospital for few days with a panic disorder kept having panic attacks. Although although I didn't know that that's what they were I thought I had some terrible physical illness. And actually my doctors misdiagnosed me. A bunch of times And when I was being discharged From the hospital my doctor sat me down and he said you know. I don't want you to freak out panic CIA but your insurance company is not going to cover your stay in the hospital. They've denied your claim And I didn't freak out until I got the bill which was about four thousand dollars At the time I was earning fourteen thousand dollars a year so so it might as well have been four million to me So when I moved back to Boston shortly after that and this whole fight with the with the health health insurance a company I haven't organizing background and I found this organization called mass care. They were The Massachusetts single payer nation. I didn't even know there was a social movement in the United United States to win. Healthcare is a right And I was like ready to fight. I was ready to go so they hired me and this was almost fifteen years ago. And I've been a fulltime organizer in in the mood for Medicare for all ever since right now. I am the director of healthcare. Now an organization you may know as one you also work at the desk immediately next to yours We work out of Boston. And you know we decided to do as podcast because we wanted to kind of let the public in All the amazing news that we hear around the country about the fight for Medicare for all the organizing that people are doing and just You know how far we've come since I started those fifteen years ago but also how hard it's going to be to get it over the edge one of the reasons I'm really looking forward to this. PODCAST is because I think there isn't really consistent pro Medicare for all voice right now For people to hear to go to for a clear understanding of Medicare for all or For reference point four how to understand like the news they're hearing about Medicare for all attacks and what different you know. Candidates are saying The mainstream media isn't really faithfully reporting on this issue They report on it. They're very centrist Lens and sometimes with a very obvious bias. And we're here. I think to dissect the the news. We already do this every day. Sitting next to each other and the offense that we thought why not just stick Mike in front of us and then at least other people can wasn't in on the conversation station And so we're here do that to look at these attacks through the Lens of you know frankly the rest of the world at already has universal. Healthcare debate is ridiculous. I I don't think you even need like a pro medicare for all I would settle for like a balanced dot totally pro healthcare Industry Lens. So we're going to cover a few things with this. podcast cast one. We're going to go over the big political fights over healthcare Both at the national level obviously in Congress Medicare for all has really gained steam but also at the state state level which You don't hear as much about often but that's where a lot of the fight is happening. Also we're also going to talk about like the big breakthroughs in the social movement. Meant to make healthcare right. Big Organizing Victories This is never covered in the news but we hear a lot about it and it's our job actually to coordinate the grassroots efforts around the country and then we're going to break down like the constant total stream of bullshit that ends up being pushed into the media about healthcare era and Medicare for all. And it's honestly I kind of see this. This podcast is like a form of personal therapy for me so I can like event unlike. Get all this stuff off my shoulders. I don't know about you but this is already been Cathartic. Yeah I'm feeling a little bit better already. It's just going to be better from here so please everyone everyone Thank you for joining us on this journey Share on social media. That we're here we're alive we're GONNA be coming back to you next week with content and please tell everyone you know because we are coming..
