Elizabeth Warren Proposes a Second New Deal 16.8.2018 American Prospect
(AP Photo/Charles Krupa) Senator Elizabeth Warren speaks in Woburn, Massachusetts, on August 8, 2018. When Bernie Sanders offered up his definition of socialism in a speech at Georgetown University in 2015, he basically equated it with the governmental programs created by the New Deal. Sanders cited Social Security, and New Dealer Lyndon Johnson’s three-decades-later follow-up, Medicare, as the primary U.S. examples of publicly funded universal programs that provided older Americans with income and access to health care. That, said Sanders, was a tradition he sought to renew, by creating single-payer health care for all, free public university educations, and a host of other programs. The historic ground on which Sanders took his stand was the experience of the United States when New Deal programs were most effectual.

Trump Won Michigan — Can A Progressive Win It Back? 29.7.2018 SirotaBlog
In 2016, Michigan was supposed to be part of the Democrats so-called Blue Wall -- the nickname for the states that have traditionally voted Democratic in presidential elections. But on election night, it didn’t turn out that way -- Donald Trump won the state, which helped him win the whole election. Now, less than 2 years later, the state faces a major governor’s race -- one that is part of an intensifying debate over the future of the Democratic Party. On this episode, I talk to Abdul El-Sayed, a 33-year-old physician who is running for governor on a promise to create a single-payer healthcare system. He's trying to overcome the Democratic Party establishment and win the Democratic nomination for governor in the primary on August 7th.
