Sanders to Introduce Single Payer Health Care and Fatal US-Drone Strikes In Iraq

Several progressive groups are backing a single-payer system, including the Working Families Party, the Progressive Campaign Change Committee, CREDO, Social Security Works and National Nurses United. For more, we speak with Dr. Steffie Woolhandler, co-founder of Physicians for a National Health Program.

Then we speak with Chris Woods, founder of Airwars, a nonprofit group that monitors civilian deaths from international airstrikes in Syria and Iraq about the recent onslaught of US strikes.

Then, we speak with Bill McKibben, co-founder of 350.org and author of several books, including “Eaarth: Making a Life on a Tough New Planet” about Trump’s approval of Keystone XL.
