On today’s show, we hear an eye-witness account of this weekends white nationalist demonstration in Charlottesville, VA. Reverend Traci Blackmon, was a counter-protester throughout the weekend, and she serves as the Executive Minister of Justice and Witness at The United Church of Christ.

Next, we discuss the Medicare buy-in bill with Congressmember Jared Huffman (representative of California’s second district), who was one of the legislators who introduced  the “Medicare Buy-In and Healthcare Stabilization Act.” The legislation would allow people ages 50-64 to buy into Medicare with the aim of protecting them from inflated rates (since insurance companies typically consider them higher risk).
