Rising Up With Sonali

What Comes After GOP’s Latest Healthcare Repeal Bill?

The Cassidy Graham bill to overturn Obamacare is dead. It’s the third failed effort by the GOP this year to repeal the Affordable Care Act. On today’s show we’ll hear from our healthcare correspondent Paul Song about the price Americans have paid for Republican political posturing and what lies in the future of healthcare reform. Then, we’ll go to Berkeley, California, where a week of so-called “Free Speech” events by fascist right wing groups fizzled out. Katrin Wehrheim, a UC Berkeley Professor will tell us how the university was forced to spend nearly a million dollars for white supremacist Milo Yiannopoulos’s photo op. Finally, Dani McClain will share her latest cover story for The Nation magazine – the future of Black Lives Matter and how it is evolving in the era of Donald Trump. Hosted by Sonali Kolhatkar.
