Congress could be on the verge of passing a historic investment in America's human and physical infrastructure not seen since the 1930's. The overwhelming majority of the Democratic caucus is behind it, the majority of Americans in countless opinion polls support it and it is the backbone of President Biden's domestic agenda. Yet two Democratic Senators -- Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona -- stand in the way of getting it done. Michael Moore is joined by Rep. Ilhan Omar on this Emergency Podcast System episode of Rumble to find out where this legislation currently stands and what the American people can do to help pass it.

It's Casual Friday! Sam hosts Ryan Grim, D.C. Bureau Chief at The Intercept, to discuss his recent bombshell scoop Heather Bresch, Joe Manchin's Daughter, Played Direct Part In EpiPen Price Inflation Scandal and round out the week in news. Ryan and Sam jump into a quick discussion of Biden's recent vaccine mandate announcement, and speculate on the role it can play in bolstering Biden and Democrats' support going into the midterms with a large majority of Americans both already vaccinated and supportive of a mandate. They dive particularly into the culture war narrative currently driving politics and how that could both help and hurt Democratic midterm success, before touching on what is to be expected with COVID rates. Grim then dives into his scoop on the Manchin family, starting with Joe Manchin's recent attempt to cut down the infrastructure budget and discussing what the budget actually means when it comes to spending, before moving onto the scandal breaking around Manchin's daughter, Heather Bresch, and wife, Gayle. Ryan sets up the corruption starting with Heather's faked diplomas from West Virginia University that helped her reach the office of COO, then President and CEO of Mylan Pharmaceuticals and her mother's role as a lobbyist for the association of school boards, before he and Sam dive into Bresch's makeshift monopoly, of both supplier and distributor, of EpiPens alongside Pfizer, resulting in over a 500% increase in price, and a Mylan scheme to force their consumers to choose between literal death or spending mass amounts of money on multi-EpiPen packages, all while Gayle Manchin helped secure requirements for schools to purchase their own supplies of EpiPens. They round out the interview by exploring how Dem leadership can turn these metaphorical scandal lemons into an infrastructure lemonade, and Sam dives a little deeper into Biden's new vaccine mandate. And in the second half of the show, Matthew Film Guy joins Sam as they reminisce on culture and comedy in the wake of 9/11, before they move onto the effect of 9/11 on general American culture, discussing the shift to the Right in mainstream media and pop culture in the early aughts and what direction today's artists might shift mainstream political culture, and Matt gives his suggestions. Sam also touches on the deplorable laughter at a boy discussing the death of his grandmother in a Tennessee school board meeting, Rep.

Dr. Eddie Glaude points out the unfortunate truth about Democratic leadership. Change this, and we win. While discussing the draconian Texas abortion law, Nicolle Wallace noted that Democrats are, in fact, in lockstep with the values of most Americans. Dr. Eddie Glaude had a prescient answer. The COVID pandemic provides all the proof America needs that healthcare does not belong under the control of for-profit corporations. We are in a global pandemic. We have various vaccines on the market. Most at some point got their genesis from public funds, our taxpayer dollars in some form. --- If you like what we do please do the following!

62% of people now have a positive opinion of drug companies, up from 32% in 2020. What's responsible for the sudden shift, and do pharmaceutical companies deserve this newfound adoration? We're joined by Shannon Rotolo, co-founder of Pharmacists for Single Payer and a clinical pharmacy specialist at the University of Chicago Medicine, to debunk industry lies about research and development, innovation, the market, and more. Show Notes Public opinion seems to be driven by the belief that pharmaceutical companies mainly function to discover and manufacture important new drugs. While the big pharma companies do do some research and development, they primarily buy the intellectual property of smaller biotech research companies, and then mostly act as marketing and sales reps for the product. They actually spend a lot less on research and development, and much more on marketing and profits for shareholders. Image description: Congresswoman Katie Porter, holding a whiteboard at a House Oversight Committee hearing about drug prices. The smallest circle on the whiteboard is labeled Litigation and Settlements, the next circle is labeled R&D, the next largest is labeled Marketing and Advertising. The largest circle, Stock Buybacks and Dividends, is more than 10 times the size of the next largest circle. https://www.businessinsider.com/video-katie-porter-tears-into-pharma-ceo-whose-company-inflated-its-prices-for-two-major-drugs-2021-5 The vast majority of breakthrough innovative pharmaceuticals are actually funded by taxpayers through the National Institute of Health. Some studies are funded through the Veteran's Administration. There are countless examples of pharmaceutical companies profiting off of publicly-funded research, making billions and denying any royalties to the government. Those royalties could be used to provide lower cost drugs to patients, but the pharmaceutical companies instead have driven prices up, making life-saving drugs unavailable to people who need them. A recent example is the drug Truvada, marketed by Gilead. Shannon explains some of the games pharma plays to make more money regardless of patient needs. Patent extensions, me-too drugs and changes to delivery methods all allow drug companies to maximize profits and minimize research costs and risks, ultimately driving up costs for patients. While drug companies argue that lowering prices will stifle innovation, the profit motive actually works against the innovation motive. If you can tweak a drug and profit from it, the incentive isn't there to take the risk and put in the work to develop something new. (Socialize the risk, privatize the profit, as they say.) If you've always wondered what Pharmacy Benefit Managers (PBMs) add to healthcare, Shannon breaks it down. Insurance companies, large employers and Medicare Part D contract with PBMs to facilitate prescription drug benefits. They negotiate rebates with drug companies, ultimately setting the price the payer will pay for the prescription. Essentially, PBMs are yet another corporate middleman that skims profits off the system without adding any actual care for patients. What would single payer mean for pharmaceutical prices? Removing insurance companies and PBMs, and negotiating prices would all help bring down costs. But the key benefit of single payer would be simplifying the process and eliminating out-of-pocket costs for drugs that patients need to live. We sometimes hear concerns about a single payer system limiting the drugs that are covered. Shannon explains that there would be a formulary in the system, which would limit coverage of some of the duplicative me-too drugs; but that's already the case with the insurance plans that most Americans have now. The benefit of a single national formulary is that it's transparent. Your provider will know what's covered and you'll get it. There would be an exception process for patients with rare conditions,

We know that women have been hit hard by COVID—causing many to dub the economic downturn a “she-cession.” And as it stands, current U.S. laws and policies are woefully inadequate—leaving mothers, particularly mothers living with low incomes, behind. Luckily, women-led organizations are helping moms by filling in the gaps.  How are moms making it through the pandemic? And, how do single moms fit in, especially teenage moms? What should parents generally, and mothers in particular, be demanding of lawmakers and the Biden administration? What are the best ways for the U.S. to 'build back better' after pandemic? We also hear from some of our listeners who are giving shoutouts to the mothers–and stand-in moms—in their lives! Joining us for this very special Mother’s Day episode are special guests: Representative Katie Porter represents the 45th congressional district in Orange County, Calif.
