Episode 27: Special Episode – POLITICS KILLS Feat. Greg Dwyer

Episode 27: Special Episode – POLITICS KILLS Feat. Greg Dwyer
This week, the gang (@Jung_Hegelian, @mmalloyboy, and @RIPmarkusJ) is joined by @grgdwyr of Arsenal for Democracy to discuss the AHCA, a “health care reform” that will destroy coverage provisions for millions of Americans and decimate the feeble steps toward universal coverage that the PPACA provided. If this piece of legislation passes and is signed into law by Trump it will result in a quality of life decline and literal death for thousands of Americans. Politics KILLS.
