Kevin Miller shares a big announcement from last night's debate. The Bernie Sanders campaign announced on Tuesday that it will pick up two major endorsements, earning thumbs up from half of "The Squad". Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar plan to back the 78-year-old senator from Vermont over his other rivals vying for the White House in 2020. AOC got her start in politics volunteering for Sanders on his 2016 presidential primary bid, while Omar notes her work in Congress alongside Sanders as the reason for her endorsement.According to CNN, another member of "The Squad," Rep. Rashida Tlaib, is also planning to support Sanders, with that announcement said to come on Saturday. Kevin Miller asks the following questions: Do you think these endorsements will propel Sanders to the election? How important are endorsements to helping you choose a candidate?
Kevin Miller takes calls following a recent federal court's decision. In a surprising development on the health care front, a federal judge on Tuesday overturned Obamacare protections for transgender patients. In making his decision, Northern District of Texas Judge Reed O'Connor said the 2016 policy violates the religious freedom of Christian insurance providers by forcing them to take on patients who violate their beliefs. Specifically, O'Connor -- who last year ruled the Affordable Care Act is "unconstitutional" -- said the policy violates the Religious Freedom Restoration Act.Obamacare supporters say O'Connor's decision will allow health care providers, hospitals and insurers to discriminate against transgender patients.
