Almost as good as Berkowitz w/Obama: Berkowitz w/ 5th CD candidate Tom Geoghegan on healthcare, War, abortion and more: Cable and Streaming

Jeff Berkowitz: People who have choices [among countries for health care], say, people who are in Canada, come across the border to the United States for their health care. Very few people choose to go from the United States to Canada [which has a single payer healthcare system] for their health care. Don’t you have the idea that—

Tom Geoghegan, Illinois 5th Cong. Dist. Dem. Primary Candidate: That’s not true. That is not true, Jeff. [Watch Geoghegan here]

Jeff Berkowitz: You have a lot of people crossing over from Detroit and going to Canada [to purchase health care]?

Tom Geoghegan (D-Chicago), 5th CD Candidate: I see plenty of ads in the buses now—You know, if you can’t go to Canada, please come to us for healthcare. I have friends who live in Europe who would never come back to the United States for healthcare.

Mike Quigley (D-Chicago) did the show last November, before he became a 5th CD candidate, and was willing to answer national issue questions for the last third of the show [Watch 1/3 5th CD Candidate Quigley here] and then proceeded to cancel two scheduled appearances to do a show devoted exclusively to national issues. 5th CD Candidate Sara Feigenholtz declined, in early January, to tape the show, as she has throughout most of her 14 year career as a politician.
