This week, U.S. district judge David heard in Utica, New York ruled that the mandate conflicted with individuals federally protected right to seek religious accommodation from their employers. And Mark has this kind of bizarre all people are just faking it and you just can't throw that around. You have to have a sincere religious exemption. Well, Mark, you don't get to decide who has a sincere religious belief. We can't tell other people that. The guy I interviewed from Columbia South Carolina this week, he's a staunch Catholic. He says Mike Catholic beliefs. Impacted my decision to refuse to get the vaccine. Now this popular sportscaster is out of a job because his company fired him.

What Are the Newsom Recall Polls Saying?
"Hey everybody. Welcome to this episode of the charlie kirk show with us. Today's a friend of mine and he's rarely ever wrong. In fact we had him coming on our program leading up to the election and he got almost all of his predictions correctly. Richard harris from the people's pundit and also we had you on for the georgia thing and you're the one that early said. Hey we got a problem in georgia and you're right so we're going to talk about california polls and so all right richard. Let's cut through all of the nonsense. Yes the way. It works in california for all of our friends in maine and massachusetts and florida and south carolina. It's a two part question. Yes or no recall gavin newsom and if yes then who let's start with the yes or no. Do you think that the yeses are going outnumber the nose. Yes we pulled it a couple of weeks back and we had no ahead by a little bit charlie. But let me leave this with you. The caveat here is that. I thought my share of the you know is part of poland. I thought my share of the white vote was a little bit high california's usually forty five fifty percent tops and did see other pollsters. That had him in the sixties. If you look at who's voting right now. This is why democrats are nervous. The electorate is very white. And it's and it's much older so if if the electorate and we had them at fifth we whites at fifty five but we still had the age breakdown to be pretty young so that could a two point advantage could easily be swamped demographic difference like that the problem newsom has then i was just saying this before he needs white liberals and asian voters to come out and they are the least likely to want to vote. Weitz were over. Eighty percent certain to vote when we pull them And asia voters were in the fifty s. So it. I mean it really. It goes to show you got a close race can turn into a nailbiter either way
"south carolina" Discussed on Reasonable Doubt
"So there's questions about whether or not the family's influence played in here The family of the victim ends up suing both the driver the murtaugh family and the convenience store that sold the liquor to them. Actually which is an interesting little twist but subsequently the the driver of the boat. The murdoch family member is arrested but is released on night the nineteen year old. His name is ryan. He's arrested but released on fifty thousand dollars bail. And he is awaiting trial he and his mother are executed and left by the kennels on their property in south carolina. One of them shot multiple times with a shotgun and the other one shot multiple times with an ar fifteen so. It's just been gas. Just i mean the. I mean i don't wanna make light of it because it's horrible because people have died but dog kennel. Ar fifteen three generations and prosecutors and In a way the execution was kind of it was like a mob hit it. According to gary so who would be motivated to kill the son. Well i guess the parent of the deceased daughter seems like they'd have some motivation but then not sure where the mom comes in sure. So why the month do something. Some court appearance or something. Yeah in a further. Twist the patriarch of the family dies a few days after these murders. He was apparently already pretty ill. He was in his early eighties and he passed away. So it's just it's a very weird story the way you read the articles that have been written about it. It doesn't seem to cast suspicion on the victim's family as as adam alluded to there but it seems to point out that over the course of these personal injury lawsuits where they were representing people and then the prosecutor side of the family that was sending people to the death penalty. There is any number of people who have had a problem with this family and ended up right adventure so probably wasn't connected to the boat accident and most likely not is what suggested well. It's interesting because i've said for years and it was not original with me. It was my father used to say when people would ask him isn't a dangerous when you go into the criminal courtroom soon. Don't you representing criminals. Autobahn pops you always say no. The most dangerous court is family. Law courts wadsworth. People get shot killed and people go crazy and so the fact that they did. Pi does to kind of ring a bell but if they did family law. That's the first place. I'd look in fact i don't need the not. The case was ever soul in la but in la county. There was a judge years ago who was murdered in pomona. Who was a family law judge and there was also a lawyer who was murdered in his garage as i remember and he was a family law lawyer and so Kind of I don't know if you remember adam. Do you remember that. Video of the guy circling. The boy is very good. Yeah always family yeah. it's funny. It's because family. Law is sort of like construction worker and then criminal law as sort of like firemen and that construction is actually more dangerous job than firemen but no one thinks of construction is a dangerous job. They think a fireman is a dangerous job so any kids listening either. Become a fireman or criminal attorney. You get paid better. There's more pussy. And you're you're essentially hailed as a hero in your community versus the construction guy or the.

Where some legal scholars given the two decisions to the decision said i reference before this week are saying that there now people who talk about the core adds a six to three conservative court are missing. What has happened this week. Which is it's really kind of a three three three court. Meaning the The more recent. Roberts cavanaugh amy. Ernie barrett are in one group. You're getting gore stitch. you're getting The what's his name And and alito in the other and then keagan. And i don i on the other two brier. Whoever so three three three is a different configuration impart of i think the genius of the chief justice is he. He doesn't try to make sweeping decisions he tries to do it incrementally so that there is some kind of trust in the in the us supreme court. And i think that's basically what your point is. How do you have trusting the media outlets or the social media outlets if it looks like. They're rooting as you always say. I love it. The rooting for one team or another. I agree with me all right. I'll set this up. Gary scott a crazy story out of south carolina beyond reasonable doubt. Yeah also i'm curious. Your thought it came up and it went.

"Underneath the city of columbia. South carolina are miles of tunnels that were constructed around the eighteen. Hundreds their true purpose has been lost time but whispers of use in the underground railroad clandestine passengers for state officials. Cyprus floors and confederate gold theories abound when researching them whatever their true purpose from nineteen forty nine through the nineteen sixties. They were home to a rather strange and scary individual. That would become known as the third man. Oh man and did you say you you say and they say the two utes go for man. This is great right here. Go for it so november twelfth nineteen forty nine. the man heard the entity. I guess you could call them. Which become known as the third eye mounds. I seen on the campus of the university of south carolina. He was witnessed and reported to the school paper. By an individual the name of c nichols see nichols and one other person were out about on the night of november twelve when they saw what they described as a man dressed all in silver opening a manhole cover and disappearing into the sewers so early. It's gonna be funny. Oh man so. Six months later on april seven nineteen fifty the next person to see the man in silver was a university police officer who came across the remains of to mutilated chickens on the loading docks behind the long street theatre thinking. It wasn't fraternity prank south carolina. Now i'm sorry go ahead. I didn't mean to break in. No what'd you say. I was gonna say colonel sanders on proud. But then i thought nice kentucky kentucky yeah damn name in full. that's the right thinking. It was a a fraternity prank. Gone bad the officer called it in from his patrol car. When he returned to the loading dock he came upon a rather terrifying site on the dock. Was the man in silver eating. The chicken remains that were left there earlier. Oh shit maybe maybe colonel sanders before he moved to kentucky and was just trying different recipes. Maybe so in a damn early edition. Mylar astronauts him eating chickens when the officers shine his flashlight on the man's face he soft up in he would never forget gary back at him was. What wasn't colonel. Sanders beardies last. I'm just one of my five dollars. Phillips the hell off my you know this man that just it just took him a funny bone. You wanna thi- you won't take away. Oh shit in stereo back at him was what he later described as a grotesque oddly color face even more disturbing. The man had a smaller third eye on his forehead. Damn the officers stated that the the third. I was not a large but an eye all the same. Those are is quote unquote exact words. A bullet hole because dude was eating chicken. He wasn't dead chicken chicken parts escape. Lobotomy patient that's usually through the nozoe. The forehead i quit actually talked to the corner. That list with the story of theory me giggling over here man. I can't help it so well. It wasn't that funny the officer because he got scared and hauled aspects patrol car. Backup guy just like a big dildo eaten raw poultry. I got scared of a onto. I guess starman david boy looking full eating chicken parts yep now when the officers arrived they found him in hysterics and he refused to go back to the loading docks but upon arriving at the docks. The man was gone. And all the officers found. Were the remaining mutilated chicken parts. And thus the legend of the third eye man was born sh- wait. I can't wait to see what else do was up two. So the last known official police written citing or police report is hiding should say was in one thousand nine hundred sixty so the catacomb section under the usc at that point was a popular hangout for students. Most of the university was connected to these catacombs. We mentioned earlier in early october. The university police received a report from a group of fraternity kids. About an encounter in the tunnels. It seems a group of fraternity guys took three pledges to the tunnels foreign initiation entering the tunnels near the gambling hall basement they headed west into the tunnels rounding the first corner. The group came face to face with what they stated was decrypted looking. Men dressed all in silver. I assume i assume they make cripple. Because i think he was hunched over something probably the way he was hunched over docks so limps over dildo hide in the damn tunnel and did he have. Did he have any raw chickens. No he didn't. But but i think at that point. He got tired of earning the people because the students stated then stated the man charged at them and began swinging wildly at them with a metal pipe. One of the what are the pledges. Matthew taber was hit and knocked to the ground or by the silver. at that point. The group realized this was in fact not a prank and high tail out of their matthew only suffered myhrl even the poor guy on the ground. No they picked him up took off with him. He only suffered minor cuts in minor. Shock i mean has as okay. Yeah as minor engine have from being attacked by. I imagine now they say silver suit. They don't say what kind of. But i imagine it's some sort of a skin tight spandex types over suit so you see like him all his you know his grapes being smuggled in seoul imagine that being rubbed up against you always your next. That would give me some shop. I don't know right now. I don't know why cracking me up so hard. But maybe it's because i've been caged long. Maybe though. Yeah that's true so too. Fat boys went to the police to report what they saw and the police began a manhunt that night. Did you say frat or fat fat. No i say like you said i gotta shut a unfortunately. After searching for hours they came up with nothing but as a precaution the sealed up most of the entrances to the catacombs and declared off limits to anyone at any time in. This was the last sighting. Police took seriously sightings continued through the eighties and nineties. Most were dismissed by police now to this day maintenance men who worked at the university state they will not go into the tunnels unless absolutely necessary. It's believed the third eye. Man still prowls the tunnels looking for its next meal. Wow i say to grab a bucket of kentucky fried chicken leave at the entrance and you will be just fine right. That's it man. Yeah that's crazy man. So i go down there i would do. I would go down there it. Dan ride take a pistol. But i'd go down there. I wouldn't take stola like a bucket of chicken.

This is what it what it was my birthday so she was a trooper and win the but you know as i told. People cemeteries and graveyards are not scary. There's no ghosts there so it was after a while.

"All around and second. The experience that we get here is very excellent where the only transplant center in south carolina. Which leads to a very strong referral base and we get great. Clinical experience in all the different yields and we actually have a wide variety of opportunities years. Well actually had the opportunity to do a global health elective in tanzania. That was sponsored by the cardiology department. Here at see. We have connection with a cardiac center in tanzania and add opportunity to learn about cardiovascular care in tanzania and do teaching with residents students and fellows in tanzania as well for me. Somebody told me a long time ago. Some great at career advice that i've always tried to reflect on and that was if you can think of anything that would make you happy other than being a doctor. You should probably choose that. Because this is a hartfield as we all know. And i've consistently asked myself at every level my career and it's always been kind of same answer for me. The opportunity as you shop pointed out to see the really truly wide variety of pathophysiology and human and amex c. And cardiology and really do something that you love and help the same time. That was really an opportunity that i couldn't pass up and i've never regretted it as far as how i came to beat him. Usc i remember this university as i said before i grew up here. This is back then. Sorta a cozy neighborhood hospital that had a great reputation locally. But then when i had the opportunity to come back during my application process. You're the incredible vision that the leadership of the department. The program had for not only where they brought the university to now but also where the trajectory is going forward. It was truly incredible to see. So i really think that under current leadership dr judge at dr salvo leading the department that we're really headed for great places and we have the opportunity here. We live in a place in charleston south carolina where it's an incredible city. People are coming to us. We have the resources and we have the right people leading the charge. So i think this is striking. Why the irons hot and we get a chance to do it with some world. Class leadership was world class attending that. We've mentioned briefly at all. That together makes a great learning experience. The end the warm weather and approximated beach early helps as well. Yeah so my reasons are a little bit differently. All throughout medical school and residency actually thought. I wanted to transplant hepatitis. b. So i went through residency. We have a transplant. Hepatitis service.

"south carolina" Discussed on The Gravel Ride. A cycling podcast
"It is a nice benefit that USA. Cycling is there and Ken provide that insurance piece, but I agree. I mean a lot of. Gravel athletes may just sign up for one event a year, and even in that, even if they're signing up for multiple, most could care less about points and upgrades, and and all that I think that kind of motivation tends to change the racing. Just given people's competitive nature, etc, it's certainly an open ended question. That USA cycling is grappling with to try to see how they can add value to the community when you know a lot of people from the outside are. thinking. They're not adding any value whatsoever. Cool Wall I appreciate the time you guys. I appreciate the events. You guys are putting on. I have to say. Go into Charleston and racing hellhole sounds like a hell of a lot of fun.

"south carolina" Discussed on Medicare for All
"Pick this up in clinic Bernie Sanders including a Alexandra. Cossio Cortez. Who tweeted about it? She said quote. I used to work in the food industry. I can't tell you how many times the people who handle your food who are already overworked and underpaid show up sick to work because our country refuses to guarantee healthcare or paid sick. Leave we need. Hashtag Medicare for all agree or disagree step. Oh man personal story and I'm sorry I'm about to horrify all of you. I used to work at a very busy like breakfast. Brunch place and I was coming down with something that I could feel was just not a common cold or flu or whatever and I tried to call in sick but my boss told me that if I didn't come in that day it was Saturday brunch. You know it's crazy busy that I would just be fired and not bother coming in at all. It was a woman actually girl boss so I went in and I served the whole day from seven. Am to three PM. The end of the the Shift I think both days and then later that week I ended up in the ER and found out that I had had mononucleosis strep throat was just breaking down and that basically. I had served an entire weekend of people with two extremely contagious infectious disease. At the end of the story was going to be your the origin of the virus. Well I hope that at least infected. Some capitalists who is dining at that place. Yeah I think there's also speaks to it. I mean obviously the healthcare system is fucked up. But it's also all the other things were bad at in the United States like paid sick leave no empowerment for workers. I mean if you were unionized that would have never happened If there were laws protecting your rights as a worker then that would have never happened either. So beyond The Smart takes from folks like There's a good article also in the Washington Post by Helaine olen making the connection that basically there's no way you can Systematically address a virus outbreak. If people can't afford to see their doctor if they feel symptoms get sick and are afraid to go in Just because of the cost we also had a right wing. Take that was interesting for Sally. Pipes wrote in Fox News that she said single payer countries do worse at containing viruses. Can if you had to guess how you would make that argument. How would you even start? You've got me then all right. I'm going to I'm going to. I'm going to give you some some pipes knowledge radio She says though the pathogen has reached our shores our as Americans by the way. Us health officials have told Americans. They don't need to worry. That's not an ironic quote. She thinks we actually don't need to worry. Because we're capitalist American healthcare system. I think the border war yes. I'm drifting from the quote ear says countries single payer healthcare may have a more difficult time in the not too distant past candid in the United Kingdom have struggled to handle outbreaks of everything for Sars to the seasonal flu that's largely because these countries government run Medicare for all style systems lack enough healthcare personnel hospital beds and other resources to meet the needs of their populations even in good times a public health threat like a pandemic can stretch single payer healthcare to its breaking points. You lived in a couple single payer systems. Were you constantly sick with pandemics and epidemics. Nah Fortunate No. I wasn't and fortunately we also have the OCD to call bullshit on this. Yeah this is total bullshit so I got really worked up. I shouldn't even read these things. I was like lack of healthcare research so I looked up the data on. How many hospital beds? We have per piece per person or per one thousand person compared to other countries and I also looked at how many physicians we have and guess what we suck at both so we are in the bottom one fourth to one third of all the countries that the OCD tracks in hospital beds per one thousand people and in physicians per one thousand people Basically we're down there with the developing countries that they track with us so for hospital beds. we are Two Point Eight hospital beds per one thousand people And I would like to compare that with Japan where you lived. How many would you guess? Japan has a lot more being in hospital for Japanese. So Japan has thirteen point. One hospital beds per thousand people. That's like four to five times as much as the. Us people in Japan and Germany is at forty five times as many people. And that's only because they live longer because they have universal. Germany has eight hospital beds. Per Thousand People. Ostra has seven point. Four France has six They're thirty countries out of the forty. Two they track that are above us in the United States and the ones that are below us include India Indonesia Costa Rica Colombia Chile and mostly developing nations Although I do note that the other English speaking countries that have single payer like Canada UK. Which are the only two she. References are also lowered level. Hospital beds like us just goes to show that you know having a single payer system doesn't determine everything right so you then still have to decide where you're investing. Your money has a single payer country also physicians. We are also in the lowest amongst all the countries that were physicians per one thousand residents Lowest among almost all the countries we have two point six physicians per one thousand residents. Compare that with Austria with five point two twice as many Norway. Four point eight Germany. Four point three Sweden four point one and so on and so forth. It's the same thing as hospitals. So sally pipes go suck it. I just don't understand. Sometimes I wonder like what would it be like to live in a world without look totally unmortgaged from facts and then I'm like well we could just listen to trump every day? I should know by now. Don't have to fantasize about it that of the day so moving on. We talked last week about this Yale. Study showing the Medicare for all saves a lot of money And saves a lot of lives and that it kind of you know fell in line with a decades of research by dozens and dozens of actuarial studies and economic studies showing. How much medicare for all that we can cover everyone that it costs less and like we often like to say you don't really need to be an economist to know this. Just look at the rest of the World Right. Just look at all. The countries that have universal healthcare see that they spend less and it's kind of commonsense smarter than that. Oh yeah so I was getting to that. So apparently there's been you are so much hip than I am. I'm never on twitter. I'm barely social media at all. But you've reported that. There is a feeding frenzy attacking the Yale study trying to discredit it especially in the twitter verse by the centrist Walks. Yeah well I spent years trying to start a get into twitter and try to figure out what it was and figure out like healthcare now place in twitter and now that I've sort of got the hang of it. I cannot wait to delete my accounts. Yes so basically. The twitter walks the health policy sphere on twitter Basically just gleefully tore into this Recent Yell Study. So one Kaiser Health reporter Shefali Luthra wrote a fact article fact checking Bernie Sanders Statement At the South Carolina Debate statement was a recent study. And that's referencing the L. Study said Medicare for all will lower healthcare costs in this country by four hundred and fifty billion a year and save the lives of sixty eight thousand people who would otherwise have died and she rated this mostly false. Didn't he just attribute the claim to a Yale Study? How's that false exactly Go on the study itself itself. She decided was wrong. And therefore his claim Ron Defending this is from the article defending his signature. Health plan a single payer system knowns Medicare for all that would move all Americans to government funded coverage Vermont Senator Bernie. Sanders argued that the massive health expansion would actually save the system hundreds of billions of dollars the price tag of Medicare for all has been fiercely debated and some previous analysis have suggested that the proposal would increase health spending not decrease it. Those are real academic reference there. Oh yeah absolutely I mean missing from this takedown is the twenty two other studies that overwhelmingly approved how cost effective medicare for all would be or any analysis of the two studies that have found that it would cost more which were both sort of political headpieces during the two thousand sixteen election. That we're going after dented Bernie Sanders. I think that's what irritates me the most about this debate that happens on twitter. The pretense of academic neutrality They have no problem. Uncritically accepting the authority of the very reputable urban institute and had the yield study found the same things urban institute than it would have been the very reputable Lancet but instead a favor- favorable single payer studies are scrutinized death while everything else just pass Yep I'm sure. We're going to see more of this as the elections go on. I can't wait to see what comes out during the general elections. It's going to be even more batch. It crazy so lastly we want to get onto the activists section of this and who ever part. Yes I mean. We talked a lot about the South Carolina organizing which was awesome. But we want to talk about two. Other campaigns to we introduced our audience to the patients over profits pledge campaign just a week or two back which is trying to get candidates across the country Both local and but especially running for Congress to pledge not take donations from corporations that are affiliated with this partnership for America's healthcare future which we reference almost every week. Because they're spending so much money attacking Medicare for all and getting in early on. This fight was none other than Stephanie. Nakajima working closely with Boston. Dasa HERE IN BOSTON So we have representative. Joe Kennedy is challenging Senator Ed Markey here in Massachusetts. And so you've got a chance to sit down with Joe Kennedy at kind of a mixture event and put the pledge to him. Yes so last night. I attended a meet and greet for Kennedy. Yes and he's running for. Us Senate and mass against Margie. Marquis. That's right And he actually came and sat down on my table and we got to ask him on video if he would sign the patients over profits pledge and we had actually a great conversation about who was included in the pledge. He wanted to know which organizations were involved in I was able to give him The website so that he could go and actually see a list and he said he came up to me. Actually afterwards this this whole encounter was actually filmed The audio is not podcast. Worth right now but you can go onto our facebook page and we'll be posting it shortly. I'm actually this is something that you're going to hear about on this podcast but not actually Yet in on social media because we want to give him a little bit of time to look over the pled and and you know make the right decision to sign it before we start putting more pressure on him but essentially he came up to me afterwards and told me that if the pledges truly you know just these entities that are supporting the Partnership for America's healthcare future. Then he will sign so I'm really excited to hopefully get our first or one of our first signing the pledge And I encourage everybody else. Also start talking to their members of Congress and starting to get more signers of this pleasure we can get a little momentum going around this campaign which I think is going to be so important as we get closer and closer to really winning. Medicare for all. Yeah I think the you know the process that the the national campaign is going to go through his..

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..

"Or one one million three hundred sixteen in person and early male votes In the most populous fifteen counties. Democrats vote shattered Republican Early Village. Which is no big deal because there isn't really a big republican contests in Texas right now. It's just the Democratic presidential primary but over a million votes cast in Texas and that happened before South Carolina remember. South Carolina was on Saturday. There hasn't been early voting on Saturday or Sunday. And this comes out at nine twenty five this morning so it doesn't include any sort of Monday voting and there is no Monday voting Because the elections tomorrow so all of the cumulative early vote in Texas over a million people have already voted Bernie Sanders. According to the Bulls had big momentum in Texas and so that suggests Berry. Sater's may have good night in Texas and that's not good news Joe Biden or the Democrats. Now there's a lot of speculation this morning that Pete. Bhuj wants to be the Democratic vice presidential pick for Joe Biden. We'll see if that happens. I want to go to Robert Gibbs. Robert Gibbs was Barack Obama's Predator he was on one of the Sunday shows talking about what Biden needs to. Do I think he the South? I mean it's possible. North Carolina will be the toughest you look at the numbers you just. And you've got Bloomberg at fifteen percent right at that viability line and so does last night's win and that momentum push a couple of points up for Vice President Biden and push Bloomberg down a couple of points and so do do you do you force that one on one contest through viability. I think Joe Biden strategy has to survive the big states of California and Texas and wake up Wednesday morning as the sole competitor to Bernie Sanders. But he's going to be because Bloomberg has not bought a bunch of ads but Bloomberg wants to do a three minute block on the networks. Abc CBS and NBC on the Corona Virus. Believe it or not it will get to the virus. There is news on the Corolla virus. It's just I I've talked about it so much there other things that I want to get to today out of the gate and we will get to the girl of Irish Duffin and right now I mean Super Tuesday is tomorrow.

You'RE GOING TO HAVE ELIZABETH WARREN OUT THERE. Trying to make a case for herself even as she looks like. May Lose Massachusetts. One more from Chris Olsen with Chris Wallace from over the weekend. What does polling say about? How tough it will be to sell. Socialism not communism but socialism to a majority of Americans. So Fox News is owned polling from just this week shows it only about three out of ten. Voters say that they would be comfortable with someone who is socialist Being President That they only a third of America is okay with socialism but socialism is defined very differently for younger voters versus older voters. Katie was mentioning. I think that in terms of the word socialism. Lots of voters don't like it but the idea of the government providing very extensive healthcare benefits etc. A lot of voters are actually much more on on board with that. I would not count out the ideological places. American voters may be willing to go. You know it's also interesting. In our voter analysis Fox's voter analysis Bernie Sanders one among people both black and white under forty five. He got clobbered among blacks and whites over forty five. He did black voters in South Carolina did not like Bernie Sanders at all because they WANNA be trump and they're still this that Bernie Sanders says. Here's a one more here.
