Hosts Rania Khalek and Kevin Gosztola are joined by Michael Lighty, policy director for National Nurses United. He has worked on health care reform for over 25 years.
Lighty addresses the need for Democrats to go on the offensive and push for a national Medicare For All system. He describes why the Affordable Care Act is flawed and not enough. He highlights a push in the state of California for a Medicare For All system.
Later, Lighty speaks to the Trump administration's agenda of dismantling environmental regulations designed to protect the public's health. He also previews People's Summit 2.0 in Chicago, which was announced this past week and will take place from June 9-11.
