This is episode 56, “How Medicare For All Would Benefit People With Disabilities and the LGBTQIA Community.”
My guest, Rosie Bean, has been politically engaged from an early age. They are a part of the LGBTQIA community and a disabled individual. This has made the fight for justice personal for Rosie. They started out as a moderate liberal Democrat, but had a political awakening that caused them to become more progressive. Rosie started their own political group called FLIP, “Feminists, Liberals, Independents & Progressives,” and is an activist for Medicare for All.
Do not miss this episode as Rosie discusses how getting on Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) dramatically changed their life and how people with disabilities and the LGBTQIA Community would benefit from Medicare for All.
