Episode Summary

The first episode of Ballots and Dollars covers Medicare for all and whether or not it can actually work in America today. Rick and Alexis discuss how this will be one of the major talking points for the upcoming 2020 election, and how it might be the issue that puts democrats over the top against Trump. The presumptive front-runners Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders all have different takes on the issue - and will no doubt be emphasizing their plans in the upcoming debates beginning Thursday evening.

New episodes will be released every Wednesday morning, and will follow the latest news in the political and financial climate of America. The 2020 election is approaching quickly, and there are bound to be many twists and turns along the way.
