In the first segment, Robert Griffin and Vanessa Williamson weigh in on some of the latest conversations surrounding a single payer "Medicare for all" health policy — and what it would take to actually implement (via Hill.TV).
Williamson and Griffin also spoke to the falling trust in government, nationally and globally. "What's important to recognize is the case that trust in government has fallen worldwide," said Griffin (via Hill.TV).
Related, Williamson and Griffin talked about how Americans tend to put more trust in local institutions than national and international groups. "So if it is just the case that there's just simply less of these local institutions influencing people's perceptions of what government is, and what government can do for them then that's sort of a problem long term," said Griffin (via Hill.TV).
