"So, if you have 24 million people thrown off health insurance, you'd be expecting about 24,000 more or less extra deaths in 2026. Put it in perspective, that's more than the number of Americans who died in 1967 in the Vietnam War, and we'd be doing that every year."

– Gerald Friedman, professor of economics at the University of Massachusetts, on the proposed Republican Affordable Health Care Act

Economist: Under GOP Healthcare Plan, 24,000 Additional Uninsured Will Die Annually

MP3 Interview with Gerald Friedman, professor of economics at the University of Massachusetts, conducted by Scott Harris

AHCA

President Donald Trump and Republican Party leaders in the House and Senate have followed through on their campaign pledge to repeal and replace Obamacare. But the proposed GOP legislation, dubbed the American Health Care Act, shamelessly fails to live up to Trump’s repeated promises on the campaign trail to provide health insurance to all Americans; ensure that all Americans will have quality health care for less money than Obamacare and to never cut funding for Medicaid. On all three of those important pledges the Republican health care bill flunks.  Story continues

Native Nations Rise Protest Demands Respect for Sovereignty, Culture and the Environment

MP3 Excerpt of a speech by JoDe Goudy, chairman of the Yakama Nation in Washington State, at the Native Nations Rise march and rally in Washington, D.C., recorded and produced by Melinda Tuhus

nationsrise

On March 10, thousands of indigenous people from across the U.S. gathered in Washington, D.C. for the Native Nations Rise march and rally. The action was preceded by two days of prayer and ceremony on the National Mall. The march route went past the Trump International Hotel, where some participants had erected a tipi and a group of women did a circle dance. The event began as rain turned to snow and then back to rain, which was described as "Mother Earth doing exactly what she's supposed to be doing" by a representative of the Piscataway Nation who welcomed everyone to her homeland.  Story continues

40-Year History of Radical Activism Offers Useful Lessons for Today's Trump Resistance Movement

MP3 Interview with L.A. Kauffman, veteran organizer, strategist, journalist, and observer of U.S. radical politics, conducted by Scott Harris

radical

The 1960s and early 1970s was a period of great turmoil and change in the U.S. and around the world. While the decade of the 1950s was identified with conformity and repression, symbolized by Sen. Joe McCarthy’s anti-communist witch hunts, the 1960s saw a blossoming of powerful social movements. Among these was the critical struggle against racism, and for civil rights, massive protests to end America’s wars in southeast Asia – and the birth of new movements for women’s equality and the coming out of the LGBT community.  Story continues
