    The New American Dreamers

    The New American Dreamers

    There are about 11 million undocumented immigrants residing in the United States. About 800,000 immigrants in the U.S. are current DACA-holders. There is no way for them to get a green card or to become permanent residents. This is why when President Trump announced he was ending DACA in 2017, many Dreamers feared they would be deported immediately. But, mow the United States Supreme Court is deciding their fate.
    This is part one of a two-part discussion about DACA. In two weeks we will release part two.

    A System Riddled with Fraud

When you go to see the doctor, they’re required to code your visit in order to get reimbursed by an insurance company or by Medicare or Medicaid, and what they put down influences what they get paid. But, Direct Primary Care doctors are trying to challenge how we envision our health care system.

    Re-Release: It Hits Home

    This episode is a re-release of Episode 3 from Season One of the Pursuit.
    Government, big or small, really does impact people’s lives. And more than that, it sets the tone about what people believe they can do about their own lives. And when government makes people feel as though it’s untrustworthy or the individual is unempowered, in democracy, that’s bad. In our system, it really needs to be a system of laws and not just of people exerting power.
