Reminder-- and this isn't just about Republicans vs Democrats

Yesterday, in his often excoriating music business newsletter, Bob Lefsetz set his sites on... oligarchs in politics. "You’ve got to be rich," he wrote. "And it always comes down to who you know." That could've easily been the opening lines about a music business post. But not when he...

Billionaire New York businessman Michael Bloomberg was a late arrival to the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination race, but he has certainly already made an impact. Spending $327 million on TV advertising alone, the former mayor has jumped into second place in some national polls, running on...

On Tuesday, February 4, Donald Trump delivered his third State of the Union (SOTU) address. As expected, it was filled with contradictions, falsehoods, and distortions. Among other things, Trump spoke for close to ten minutes about health care in the U.S., claiming that he “will always...

If you’ve been reading DWT with even the slightest regularity, you probably know what a big fan of Medicare I am. I feared it when I was in my late 50s because I had what I thought was perfect private insurance, a platinum plan that AOL-TimeWarner gave to divisional chairmen and...

Students were shocked when they were told that Medicare for All would remove about 100 million Americans from their private insurance plans, an estimated one million jobs would be lost and each taxpayer would have to contribute about 20% of their income to fund the program.
