01) John McCain Reveals His Graham-Cassidy Healthcare Vote


“”Sen. John McCain of Arizona, the Republican who delivered the final blow to the previous attempt to overhaul the US healthcare system, may have done the same when he came out against the GOP’s latest healthcare legislation on Friday afternoon.
In a statement, McCain said the lack of “regular order” in crafting the legislation was what pushed him away.

“I would consider supporting legislation similar to that offered by my friends Senators Graham and Cassidy were it the product of extensive hearings, debate, and amendment,” McCain said. “But that has not been the case. Instead, the specter of September 30 budget reconciliation deadline has hung over this entire process.”

01) Hillary Clinton and Her Minions Seek Vengeance on America – Episode 110


“In this episode—the longest in the history of our show—we’ll cover President Trump’s cruel decision to end DACA along with his plans to resell ‘trickle-down’ economics to the American people. We’ll also focus on the return of Hillary Clinton and challenge the arguments made in her new book, ‘What Happened.’ But Hillary Clinton’s return was accompanied by her most prominent minions including Peter Daou (with a new pro-Hillary propaganda website to attack progressives called “Verrit”) and Joy Ann Reid (who claims the Democratic Party should focus on identity politics and ignore economic issues). After covering these knuckleheads, we’ll shift focus to Medicare for All in the second half of the show. Finally, we’ll end the episode on a lighter note with a Patreon Q&A, and an interview with 2018 congressional candidate Sarah Smith and comedian Ron Placone, respectively. It’s the last episode for two weeks, as Mike will take a break to get hitched. Oh yeah—we also passed 25 million total views! Woohoo! So if you’re able to sit through 3+ hours of Mike ranting about politics then buckle up, because we’ve got a great show for you!”

01) Neoliberal vs. Progressive Democrats on Single-Payer Healthcare


“With the broad array of progressive candidates running for Congress in 2018, we wanted to take the time to juxtapose their responses when asked about ‘Medicare for All’ with responses from neoliberal, corporate Democrats. The difference is VERY clear, and the future looks bright!”
