As details of the Senate Republican version of the healthcare bill come to light, we’ll dig deep into exactly what the bill cuts, who it impacts, and who it benefits, with my guest and healthcare correspondent Paul Song. And, a new documentary about a young Syrian refugee named Dalya who emigrated to the US some years ago is now debuting on PBS. The film, Dalya’s Other Country, touches on refugees and immigration, religion, gender, and more. We’ll speak with the filmmaker Julia Meltzer and the subject of the film, Dalya Zeno. Finally, as the GOP pushes for passage of the so-called Financial Choice Act, we’ll speak with Isaiah Poole of People’s Action about why the 600-page bill deregulating Wall Street is really an anti-consumer bill.
