In the Bubble with Andy Slavitt
Bernie and Andy talk M4A (with Bernie Sanders)
Andy calls Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders to talk about M4A. Yes, they discuss Medicare For All but they also get into the Senator's new strategy for ending the pandemic: Masks For All. It's something the two of them have worked on together. Bernie also discusses the political dynamics within the Democratic Party and the Senate as a whole, along with how he and Vice President Biden are collaborating on major policies.
