Bernie on Medicare for All stall- Andrea Mitchell checks George Will. Royal commentator fumble.
Politics Done Right
Bernie Sanders wants you to follow the money on the stalling of Medicare for All. Andrea Mitchell checks George Will on climate change. The royal fiasco continues. 'Follow the Money': Sanders Explains Why Medicare for All Stalled in Congress: "Since 1998, in our corrupt political system, the private healthcare sector has spent more than $10.6 billion on lobbying and over the last 30 years it has spent more than $1.7 billion on campaign contributions to maintain the status quo." U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders took to the Senate floor Tuesday to call out the for-profit healthcare industry for thwarting progress toward the Medicare for All-type system that people in other developed nations enjoy. WOW! Watch Andrea Mitchell school troglodyte George Will on why Biden invested in charge stations: It is hard to believe that George Will is oblivious to the failure of the private sector to protect the environment. Andrea Mitchell called him out. Royal Commentator’s statement must be dealt with for its callousness expressed kindly: Statements from a royal commentator, while sounding kind, are dangerous. They humanize a monarchy that exploited, enslaved, and savaged others.--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/politicsdoneright/messageSupport this podcast: https://anchor.fm/politicsdoneright/support

Political Commentator George Will: Insights on American Government Today, and Where the Democratic and Republican Parties Have Both Gone Wrong (#87)
We sit down with George Will and discuss what conservatism means today and where the Republican and Democratic Parties have both gone wrong - the Republican Party with Donald Trump and the Democratic Party by being “dominated by a tail that wags the bigger dog.” Progressives, he says, are at most a third of the Democratic Party, but they are 90% of Joe Biden's agenda now and they are “in the saddle riding poor Joe Biden.” He shares how Joe Biden squandered one of the great opportunities of modern politics and how the Democratic Party is disobeying Thomas Jefferson's admonition to not undertake large departures on slender majorities. As for the Republican Party, he talks about Donald Trump’s effect on the Party, how the Party has strayed from its roots and what it means to be a Republican today.He also worries that from Elizabeth Warren on the left to Ted Cruz on the right, the political class is united by a constant powerful imperative for deficit spending.George Will is a political commentator, columnist and author of 16 books. He has won a Pulitzer Prize and is a regular contributor to the Washington Post. This podcast is available on all major podcast streaming platforms. Did you enjoy this episode?
