Healthcare debate fraud, White House secrecy beyond belief & more
In this episode of Redacted Tonight, host Lee Camp begins by dissecting America’s worst ailment: the health care dilemma. The debate is an illusion that distracts us from the truth: single-payer is completely possible, but somehow it isn’t part of the daily theater of back and forth between the GOP and Democrats. While the ACA may seem like a step in the right direction, it’s actually serving insurance CEO’s more than Americans with health problems. Letting people live shouldn’t be up for debate. What will it take to provide universal health care in the only industrialized country that doesn’t have it already? Then, Lee digs into government secrecy as the current White House delivers statements via audio via the House’s lawn shrubbery via a completely ignorant press secretary, Sean Spicer. It may seem absurd, but it’s not that harebrained when you think about the trajectory the executive branch has taken in recent years to conceal government decision-making under Obama. Although the former president promised to be the most transparent president in history, his two terms in office were the most impossibly opaque to date. Next, correspondent Natalie McGill covers the latest news about something that could adversely affect everyone’s access to information and, even worse, sexual pleasure: the internet may no longer be free. The anti-net neutrality team has been beefing up its squad with automated bots in an attempt to sway the FCC’s vote. Of course, it hasn’t hesitated to use hefty donations from its corporate coffers in this regard either. Finally, correspondent John F. O’Donnell covers the inauguration day (J20) demonstrators’ day in court. Mostly peaceful protesters are facing multiple felony charges that hold draconian punishments of up to 75 years in jail! Alongside this is a lawsuit alleging gross police misconduct. This unconstitutional crackdown on free speech and protests is a chilling trend that is spreading across the country. This, and more, on Redacted Tonight.
