MJ Knefel // Same Broken System As Before

Despite the weaknesses and inequalities in the American healthcare system, especially those exposed through the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, President Biden’s newly released budget did not include a public option for the Affordable Care Act. Nor has his administration given much attention to health care since he has taken office, despite promises made on the campaign trail. MJ Knefel describes why affordable healthcare must become a priority.

MJ and John Knefel are hosts of the longrunning progressive politics podcast, Radio Dispatch.
