10/16 Trump’s New Health Insurance Scam & Why it Threatens You With Wendell Potter

October 16, 2017

Steve Bannon brags about destroying healthcare and the Iran deal.

Health industry whistleblower and founder of Tarbell.org, Wendell Potter explains what Trump’s new executive order on the insurance exchanges does. Reopening the door to insurance scams. Buying insurance across state lines and lowering standards. Junk plans and why they will be made even worse if Trump’s plan goes through. Why the Affordable Care Act did not go far enough. Why is our health system so ridiculous? Corporate corruption and our dangerous and unjust healthcare system and how the media needs to cover healthcare.

On The Fun Half: Gorka threatens the left and loves Steve Bannon. Steve Bannon totally not drunk on Sean Hannity. Internal Left debates. The head of the Panama Papers investigation is killed in a car bomb. Nikki Haley talks nonsense about the Iran deal. Donald Trump makes fun of Mike Pence and your calls and IMs.
