US Escalates Wars in Iraq, Syria, Yemen Amid Reports of Mass Casualties

Donald Trump has sharply escalated US military involvement in Iraq, Syria, and Yemen, amid disturbing new reports of mass casualties in Mosul and Raqqa from US strikes. We’ll turn to foreign policy expert Phyllis Bennis on today’s show. And, we’ll look back at last week’s political debacle at the healthcare vote that didn’t happen. Dr. Carol Paris with Physicians for a National Health Program will reflect on why the Trump Administration pulled its bill to repeal and replace Obamacare at the last minute, what it means for the Republican Party, and why it could be an opening for Single Payer Health care. Finally, health care journalist Mary Otto joins us to discuss her remarkable new book, Teeth: The Story of Beauty, Inequality, and The Struggle for Oral Health in America
