California Eyes Single Payer System as GOP Announces New Push for ACA Repeal

As the GOP announces its plan redo the repeal and replace of Obamacare, California has decided to take up a single payer healthcare bill, SB 562. We’ll speak with Michael Lighty of the National Nurses United about what the bill would do and whether it could pass. And, a new coalition of privacy advocates called ‘Fly, Don’t Spy,’ is demanding the Trump administration refrain from forcing travelers to give up their social media account passwords. My guest Nathan White will explain. Finally, author and reporter Scott Conroy will join us to discuss his new book, Vote First Or Die – The New Hampshire Primary: America’s Discerning, Magnificent, and Absurd Road to the White House. It’s an in-depth and humorous look at a tiny state’s outsized influence on our political process.
