Here’s more information to supplement yesterday’s post on that Republican last ditch attempt to repeal Obamacare in the Senate, the Graham-Cassidy bill. Chris Hayes on MSNBC’s “All In” interviews Senator Brian Schatz. A gob-smacking bit of information revealed by Senator Schatz is that according to Senate rules the time left for debate on this bill that will drastically restructure roughly one-sixth of the U.S. economy is somewhere between ninety seconds and two minutes! For those interested in the gory details of the bill, the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities has a comprehensive analysis here.
We at San Diego Free Press love watching all kinds of video. Those short visual stories entertain, inform, and agitate in a way completely different from the written word.
Since our platform is about expressing ideas and ideals instead of cash flow, clicks, or fundraising, we have the freedom to include a wide range of topics and formats that might not work elsewhere. We don’t need or want paid content, promotional materials, or story lines designed to please donors.
So the idea here is to present videos one or more of the editors feel speaks to them. Sometimes it will be news. Sometimes it will be history. And a lot of the time it will be culture. You can not and should not separate these things: it is diversity and intersectionality that makes our movement strong.
