Democracy Matters Episode 11 Features John Freeman
The ICDP-TV production Democracy Matters will begin airing its latest show beginning on Tuesday Feb. 12 on Charter Channel 3 in Clare, Gratiot and Isabella Counties at 8:30 p.m. The new show features John Freeman who discusses the ballot initiative for universal health care in Michigan with host John Dinse and regular panelist Charles Novitski.
Freeman, chairman of the Michigan Health Care Security Campaign, won the endorsement of the ICDP at the February meeting for the ballot initiative which would change the state Constitution and require the state legislature to come up with a plan to make sure all Michigan residents had access to health care. More than a million Michiganders today have no health insurance. In Episode 11 of Democracy Matters, Freeman explains why the reform is necessary to assure Michigan's economic health as well as health care for all residents.
