Description

In this edition of Moyers & Company, Bill Moyers talks with independent filmmaker Anthony Baxter, director of You’ve Been Trumped, a documentary about the perils of rampant capitalism and gluttonous conspicuous consumption, epitomized by Donald Trump’s aggressive efforts to build “the greatest golf course in the world” across ancient sand dunes in Scotland. A veteran journalist, Baxter says what Trump and the Scottish government are hailing as an economic boon is actually a disaster to the environment and a callous disruption of people’s lives by a ruthless one-percenter run amok. To end the broadcast, Moyers shares his thoughts on the 47th anniversary of Medicare—the apex of Lyndon Johnson’s ambitious vision for America. Moyers was a key Johnson aide as Medicare was developed, and he pressed Congress to pass it. How to save Medicare today? The answer, says Moyers, is obvious: make it available to every American.
