This fall, Rick had a wide-ranging conversation called "Walking Toward Change: One Man's Journey to Fix Democracy" with Brian Lee of Texas Forward for the Texas Forward Podcast. Brian and Rick talked about how voters have been forgotten in the quest of politicians to be perpetually re-elected -- and how that cycle means nothing gets done in Congress for the people. As a result, Americans are just a paycheck away or a health emergency from bankrupcy, but most politicians don't see this as a crisis. Rick talks solutions, like public funding of elections through voucher systems, open primaries, ranked choice voting and passing the Freedom to Vote Act. But he also spends time with Brian in understanding how these reforms could help fundamentally change how healthcare is delivered, including improving quality while reducing costs. It's a great conversation we hope you'll tune in for.
