Dec 10, 2016: Is Trump Really Going to Blow Up the ACA?; The Wingnut Behind OH’s “Fetal Heartbeat” Bill

December 11, 2016 @ 12:44 pm

This week, we're talking health care. 

 

First up is Matthew Buettgens, a health care analyst with The Urban Institute and co-author of a new study detailing what would result if Congressional Republicans repeal much of the ACA through budget reconciliation -- which can't be filibustered -- and can't come to an agreement on a replacement. 

 

Then we'll be joined by Richard Kirsch. Kirsch is a senior fellow at The Roosevelt Institute, and he was previously the national campaign director for Healthcare for Americans Now (HCAN), the huge coalition that pushed the ACA through Congress in the first place. He thought his fight to establish a national infrastructure was done, but he's getting back into the fight to preserve as much of the ACA as possible. Kirsch says it's the defining battle of our generation. 

 

Finally, we'll speak with Mother Jones reporter Nina Liss-Schultz about Ohio's "fetal heartbeat" bill, and the Christian extremist who championed it.

December 4, 2016 @ 2:05 pm

This week, Heather "Digby" Parton talks about what went wrong in 2016, what our future under the Trump regime may look like and how the media isn't prepared to hold the first aggressively post-truth president's feet to the fire. 

 

Then we're joined by Dean Baker, co-director of the Center for Economic and Policy Research, to talk about his new book, Rigged:  How Globalization and the Rules of the Modern Economy Were Structured to Make the Rich Richer.
