Will Republicans repeal Obamacare? Will California pass Single Payer?

A quick look at the state of play in the Senate, where Republicans are running out of room to delay the release of a new effort at Obamacare repeal. Then, we turn to Sacramento and ask: could California create its own single-payer healthcare system? Finally, a history of the movements, organizations, and tactics that fed into what’s now called The Resistance.

Guests:

  • 7:17 Michael Lighty, Public Policy Director for the California Nurses Association, the principal backer of California’s latest single-payer healthcare bill (SB-562).
  • 7:33 LA Kaufman, longtime organizer and movement historian, author of Direct Action: Protest and the Reinvention of American Radicalism
