Episode 54 -- Mercy Killers
Recorded July 25, 2015. It's a free country. Here we have the best health care only money can buy. And if you're sick and without money, you're free to die. Dr. Anne Scheetz interviews actor and playwright Michael Milligan about his one-man play, Mercy Killers. Milligan tells about his experiences with the U.S. health care "system" (such as it is) that inspired the play and the post-performance stories and commentary from the audience that reveal both the depth of unmet needs and the variety of experience and perception regarding health care in the United States.

    President Bernie Sanders?

    Bernie Sanders

    Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has announced that he is officially running as a candidate for President in 2016 to further a desperately needed political revolution in the USA.

    Senator Sanders is a lifelong champion of the public programs and democratic rights that empower working class people. His candidacy could help expand both the progressive movement and the democratic socialist voice within that movement.


    Paid for by Chicago Democratic Socialists of America and not authorized by any candidate or candidate's committee.
