Medicare ACOs

2/28/2024
Why is tying a medical provider’s pay to the outcomes of their patients a bad idea? Why else should we be concerned about Accountable Care Organizations and the privatization of traditional Medicare? To find out, we spoke to Dr. Ana Malinow, who spent three decades working as a pediatrician with immigrant, refugee and underserved children before retiring as Clinical Professor of Pediatrics from the University of California San Francisco School of Medicine. She’s past president of Physicians for a National Health Program and is currently a lead organizer for National Single Payer and The Movement to End Privatization of Medicare. This is the second episode in a two-part series with Dr. Malinow.

As a country, We are drastically uninformed. Sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose.

STOP KIDS DYING Nex Benedict Should be here; Dining in, or out which is $$ Karel Cast 24-24 The Intro law in Alabama is rooted in religion, so it should be thrown out along with the judge. Why won't America do what needs to be done when it comes to religion in politics? Why let it ruin us? And religious bigotry played in to the death of Nex Benedict. The 16 year old was beaten in a school fight and died the next day, after months of bullying for being gender nonbinary. This comes directly from religion and MAGA.

Temu and Tariffs, Chinese Auto Industry, How to Make It in America, Biden's Industrial Policy

2/20/2024
Leslie is joined by Scott Paul, President of the Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM), a partnership established by some of America’s leading manufacturers and the United Steelworkers union. The two discuss why Chinese-based e-commerce company Temu, who's spending billions on ads, and has already reshaped how many American shop, isn't paying the United States any tariffs. Here's a brief explanation from AAM's latest blog on the subject: "The “de minimis” exemption in U.S. trade law allows anything valued under $800 to enter the United States duty-free. It was originally intended for one-off type things, like making it easier for tourists traveling abroad to bring souvenirs back from vacations abroad. But Temu and fellow Chinese e-commerce brand SHEIN have exploited de minimis because they send their merchandise direct-to-consumer, avoiding tariffs because their stuff is so darn cheap (remember, Temu’s average transaction is $25!)." If you want to help protect American jobs, then please sign and share this petition telling your members of Congress to stop companies like SHEIN, Temu and Amazon from dodging U.S. trade enforcement, by visiting TinyURL.com/CloseLoophole. Scott and Leslie then chat about the grave danger being posed to the U.S. Auto industry from China, thanks to the communist nation's intentional industrial overcapacity. Next, Scott shares some moments from his great interview with Rachel M. Slace, Author of, "Making It in America." Finally, Leslie and Scott talk about a new study that "underscores how the embrace of a more muscular industrial policy under Democratic President Joe Biden could spread investments into regions left behind by decades of offshoring." For over 16 years, Scott Paul and AAM have worked to make American manufacturing a top-of-mind issue for voters and our national leaders through effective advocacy, innovative research, and a savvy public relations strategy. Their website is www.AmericanManufacturing.org and their handle on X is @KeepItMadeInUSA. Scott's handle is @ScottPaulAAM.

NO PERFECT PRESIDENT; White Guilt over Slavery? Economy Must Be booming Karel Cast 24-22 NOTE: VIDEO IS CHOPPY AT PARTS DUE TO UNKNOWN FRAME RATE ERROR. It's President's Day and that has me thinking about Presidents. As we enter in to an election year we all want something that just isn't obtainable, a perfect President; one that checks all the boxes. But when in history have we ever gotten one those anyway? Which one? A person on Threads was angry that many White people do not feel guilty about slavery. I commented I am one of them; it ended in 1865, my ancestors were in Canada at that time and I would have fought very hard against it had I been alive, and never would have condoned it. So where is my guilt? In my skin color alone? Isn't that racists? Oh what a can of worms opened after that exchange. And the economy must be booming so it's time for #Trump and #maga to STFU. How do I know? Because this guys out selling $399 tennis shoes and people are buying them. They are sending him money. They contribute to his campaign, travel to his rallies. We must have lots of money of they can do this. Watch on YouTube and listen wherever you get your podcast.

Code Wack - 'Nothing about us without us!' The trans community fights back

2/14/2024
Some states are making it easier for trans and non-binary individuals to get gender-affirming care but in other states, a record number of laws have been passed to outlaw – or limit – such care. What kind of toll does this take on people in the trans community, their doctors and their advocates? What policy solutions are needed to ensure that everyone, regardless of gender identity, has access to the medical care they need? To find out, we spoke to Ash Orr, a trans organizer from West Virginia and press relations manager for the National Center for Transgender Equality or NCTE. This is the second episode in a two-part series. Check out the Transcript and Show Notes for more!

They also discuss special prosecutor Robert Hur, a Trump holdover, who cleared President Biden of any wrongdoing with the handling of classified documents, but released a report that was critical of Biden's memory. On that same topic, Sarah and Brad explore what's going on with U.S. political media, why they're taking the bait in letting Trump's attacks set the narrative, and whether they've learned anything since Trump's first run in 2016. Sarah also explains why she's exceptionally disturbed by the media's obsession about President Biden’s age without the context that he is functioning well as a president. Then, CNN military analyst Col. Cedric Leighton (USAF Ret.) joins Brad to examine the world at war in Gaza and Ukraine.
