Fun with #M4A in the snow

Dr. Neil Perlman and Adam Broad talking single payer healthcare and random thoughts in Winnetka, IL

I joined my friend of over 40 years, Dr. Neil, at his single payer school year event at the Winnetka Rotary lunch.

Improved #MedicareForAll That’s single-payer #M4A Accept no substitutes or half-measures. Next time Rep. Brad Schneider talks about “reducing pharmaceutical costs” respectfully suggest he join Bernie Sanders and Broad For Congress at capping pharma co-pays at $200 pr year w/ zero-co-pays, zero deductibles, and zero premiums for healthcare.


Learn more about Improved #MedicareForAll with a free screening of Fix It and a panel discussion w/ audience Q and A 2:30p – 4:30p at North Chicago Public Library 2100 Argonne Dr. North Chicago, IL. Hosted by National Nurses United, Our Revolution Lake County and Illinois Single-Payer Coalition.


Johnny Skatepunk knows #ClimateEmergency

I first met John Powell a.k.a. Johnny Skatepunk circa 1984-85 via the underground Carbondale punk rock scene. Places like Airwaves or Cafe Flesh that featured bands like The Hip Chemists, Your Mother’s Lover, Nice Boys From Good Homes, Life Without Art, The Jesus Guys, Blood Stained Tool, and The Coffee Achievers.

Johnny went on to become a scientist and an avid sailor. While the political establishment considers the Bernie Sanders Green New Deal plan to be too radical, Johnny echos a fragment of discouraged scientists that believe it may already be too late to mitigate #ClimateEmergency. He related his personal experiences in Antarctica to his skepticism, though he remains in favor of making the boldest effort possible to save ourselves.

These are iphone videos are from my visit with Johnny while canvassing North Chicago to get on the ballot as part of my run for Congress in IL-10.
