01) Hospital Erases Millions In Medical Debt


“We need healthcare reform NOW! Cenk Uygur, Brooke Thomas, and Aida Rodriguez, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down.

When Danielle Robinson got a letter in the mail from Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare in October, she braced herself.

She’d missed a court-ordered payment to the hospital after she was laid off from her job in September.

In 2018, the massive nonprofit health care system sued her for just over $11,500 in unpaid hospital bills, plus $3,800 in attorney’s fees. In April, a Shelby County General Sessions Court judge ordered her to pay $150 per month toward the debt.

If she was lucky, the envelope contained only a warning. If she wasn’t, it was another attempt to garnish her paycheck, even though she wasn’t even getting one.

Nervously, she opened the letter. “As of August 1, 2019,” it said, “your total amount due is $0 for docket ROBINSON, and we have notified the court that this account has been paid in full.”

“I had to read it a couple of times just to make sure,” Robinson said. “I couldn’t believe it. I went crying around the house.

01) I Get OK Boomer On Many Of My Clips – My Thoughts


“This OK boomer meme and other repeating comments that I get on my YouTube video posts provoked me to give my subscribers and others a sense of how I think about the different audiences were watching my video clips. It would be a lot simpler if I was making videos for a single audience group, but that isn’t what YouTube network offers creators like me. My audiences from several generations and many different perspectives and many different nations. I offer these thoughts for your consideration whether or not you are a commentator or read the comments. Thank you.”

01) Joe Biden: I’d Consider A Republican For VP


“Joe Biden told voters in New Hampshire on Monday that he would consider choosing a Republican as a running mate, but added, “I can’t think of one right now.”

Biden discussed the possibility after a woman told the former vice president that if he is the nominee, he will “have to pull out all the stops.”

“Our 21-year-old son said the other night, ‘I wonder if Joe Biden would consider choosing a Republican as a running mate,” the woman added.
“The answer is I would, but I can’t think of one now,” Biden replied. “Let me explain that. You know there’s some really decent Republicans that are out there still, but here’s the problem right now … they’ve got to step up.

01) DNC Insiders: Bernie Could Win Nomination


“Suddenly, Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign is being taken seriously.

For months, the Vermont senator was written off by Democratic Party insiders as a candidate with a committed but narrow base who was too far left to win the primary. Elizabeth Warren had skyrocketed in the polls and seemed to be leaving him behind in the race to be progressive voters’ standard-bearer in 2020.

“Members of SEAL Team 7 Alpha Platoon described their platoon leader, retired Special Operations Chief Eddie Gallagher, as “toxic” and “evil,” according to video recordings of the interviews obtained by The New York Times.

Gallagher’s war crimes case gained national attention after President Donald Trump controversially intervened on his behalf, ignoring Pentagon leaders who had told the President such a move could damage the integrity of the military judicial system.
“The guy is freaking evil,” Special Operator First Class Craig Miller said of Gallagher during his interview with Naval Criminal Investigative Service agents, the Times reported.

01) This Baby Boomer Is Concerned For Millennials. Here’s Why


“I found these statistics in a recent article on the workplace for a business magazine. Very disturbing. The workplace is clearly just not working for many millennial age workers. I have posted clips on baby boomers and millennials with the hope of crossing partisan divides and suspicion and hostility. When I read this, I felt concerned for our country and for millennial workers who are just not finding satisfaction and feeling enormous stress. That is why I created this video. I look forward to the comments of others as to why this is happening and what can be done about it to improve the situation. Thank you.”
