With millions of Americans newly accessing health insurance, Republicans are having a tough time facing their constituents in town hall meetings and offering a good enough replacement for the Affordable Care Act. On our show today we’ll turn to Dr. Carol Paris, President of Physicians for a National Health Program, for why the only alternative to Obamacare that makes sense is a Single Payer system. And, NASA’s newest discovery of seven earth-like planets has made headlines all around the world and offered ordinary people some hope. We’ll turn to one of the scientists involved in the discovery, Jim Ingalls, who happens to be my own spouse. Plus, Professor Robert Jensen at the University of Texas at Austin will discuss his new book, The End Of Patriarchy: Radical Feminism for Men.┬áHosted by Sonali Kolhatkar.
