Making The Most Of It: Medicare For All, Interest Rates, and Grasshoppers

Skimm This - July 31, 2019

Medicare for All was all the rage at last night’s democratic debate. And not necessarily in a good way. We’ll tell you why Dems are divided over it, and what to expect for the second part of the debate tonight. Meanwhile: today, the Fed cut interest rates for the first time in a decade.

Also on today’s episode: how one restaurant is taking ‘make lemons out of lemonade’ seriously.
