But first, the University of South Florida in Tampa is conducting a film series on the Holocaust, covering many different facets of one of the most horrifying periods of the 20th Century. Here to talk about the film series, which is showing two films this weekend, are Kim Vaz, an Associate Professor of Womenâ€™s Studies, and Lycia Alexander-Guerra who is an MD and President of the Tampa Bay Institute for Psychoanalytic Studies.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is keeping her promise to allow the Congressman Anthony Weiner single-payer amendment a full debate and vote on the floor of the House. Single-payer or Medicare for All could be heard as soon as tomorrow.
