Is Medicare-for-All the Path to Single-Payer? | Fighting Fake News | Susie Madrak on Trump’s Meltdown

July 23, 2017 @ 11:52 am

This week, we kick off the show with a brief tribute to the one and only Sean Spicer, may he rest behind a bush somewhere. 

 

Then we'll be joined by mild-mannered health care wonk Harold Pollack from the University of Chicago to talk policy on the left and the right: Why the GOP's zombie bill never dies, and whether making a rapid transition to Medicare-for-All is a viable way to get to affordable universal coverage.

 

Then we'll be joined by Ohio State University scholar Gleb Tsipursky to talk about The Truth Pledge -- his scheme to use behavioral science to "nudge" people into combating fake news.

 

Finally, we'll talk to Susie Madrak, a contributing editor at Crooks and Liars, about a pretty zany week in Trumpland that began with POTUS trashing everyone in sight to the NYT.
