‘ON THE GROUND’ SHOW FOR January 1, 2021: Unheard Voices on COVID Relief, ‘Forcing the Vote’ on Medicare For All, and the Neoliberal Legacy of Barack Obama

On this show, unheard voices from 2020 on issues that will continue to resonate in 2021. First, on health care, which in the United States is not a human right, we hear independent podcaster Joy Marie Mann and Scott Desnoyers, a father living in New York State, speaking at the #Force the Vote Town Hall for Medicare for All. Second, the continuing neoliberal legacy of former president Barack Obama, and why Obama needs to continue to disparage his former pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright. We hear the complete address by the anti-apartheid activist and theologian, the Rev. Allan Boesak. Headline on the sabotaged effort to secure $2000 in direct COVID relief to Americans.
