"Right now, when you turn 65, you get a Medicare card so you can go to hospitals, doctors and so forth. But they want to just give you some money and say, 'Go out on the market, good luck, and find some insurance ...' Before Medicare was enacted, most seniors could not find insurance that they could afford, and those that did paid astronomical amounts for the insurance."

– Nancy Altman, co-director of Social Security Works, on how House Speaker Paul Ryan, the nominee-to-be Health and Human Services secretary Tom Price and Vice President-Elect Mike Pence want to privatize Medicare

Trump Cabinet Pick Advocates Privatization of Medicare

MP3 Interview with Nancy Altman, co-director of Social Security Works, conducted by Scott Harris

health

As Donald Trump campaigned for president, he advocated for many long-held conservative views, including deportation of undocumented immigrants, climate change denial, big tax breaks for the nations’ wealthiest citizens, repealing Obamacare, lifting regulations on corporations and banks, and pouring billions more dollars into the U.S. military. But there were a handful of issues where Trump departed from the conservative orthodoxy, like his opposition to free trade agreements that had been supported by Republican and Democratic presidents alike. In discussing domestic social safety net issues, Trump warned in an April 2015 television interview that his GOP primary rivals would cut Medicare and Social Security, but that he alone would protect those popular programs.  Story continues

Women's March on Washington Challenging Trump Agenda Gathers National Momentum

MP3 Interview with Cassady Fendlay, communications coordinator with the group planning the January 21st Women's March on Washington, conducted by Scott Harris

women

In the hours and days following the Nov. 8 U.S. election that installed Donald Trump as the nation’s next president, tens of thousands of angry and disoriented Trump opponents poured into the streets in cities and towns declaring that the vulgar billionaire was “Not My President.” While the overwhelming majority of protests were peaceful, there were incidents involving property destruction and arrests made during Nov. 10 protests in Portland, Oregon.  Story continues

Campaign Wins Ban on Frac Sand Mining in Minnesota's Winona County

MP3 Interview with Johanna Rupprecht, policy program organizer with Minnesota-based Land Stewardship Project, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

frac

A region of rich soil and rural beauty is found in what’s called the Driftless area, where the four states of Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa and Illinois come together on both sides of the Mississippi River in terrain that was never covered by glaciers. The hard, round grains of sand in that region are well-suited to be used in the oil and gas fracking industries and is thus in great demand. So-called “frac sand” is a necessary ingredient – along with hundreds of chemicals and untold billions of gallons of water – in the fossil fuel extraction process known as hydraulic fracking.  Story continues
