  1. I would like to hear how the UK with it’s sovereign currency can pay for the NHS without fear of calamity so long as the resources exist which to purchase..
    We are seeing in the UK a real world first hand account of an attempt to destroy the NHS and move to a For Profit system and in my view it is based entirely on falsehoods..

    This is fueling the current drive by republicans to Cut Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, something which democrat President Joe Biden tried to do four times and something he would assuredly sign in support of republican and democrat leanings towards austerity a totally unproductive move in my view and damaging to the country..

    my apologies.. I hope that you can cover my question and will be listening in but will be unable to participate directly, perhaps another time..

  2. Progressive Arty is the only shot at rescuing America
    Centrist Democrats still take money from Corporations
    Republicans work for corporations
