"Over 10 years, as many as 800,000 Americans (could die) because of inadequate insurance or lack of insurance altogether."

– Gerald Friedman, professor of economics at the University of Massachusetts who served as former economic adviser to Sen. Bernie Sanders during his presidential campaign, describing the chilling death rate that could result from the Republican 'repeal and replace' health care legislation

Senate Healthcare Bill Will Cause 22 Million to Lose Health Insurance, Tens of Thousands to Die

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

health

After the Republican-controlled House of Representatives managed to narrowly pass a long-promised bill to repeal and replace Obamacare, the U.S. Senate unveiled their version of the legislation on June 22, which had been written in strict secrecy. Like the House bill, the Senate’s “Better Care Reconciliation Act” would dramatically reduce funding for Medicaid, forcing states to downsize their programs and decrease the number of recipients, who will then lose coverage. While the Senate bill would maintain some of Obamacare's subsidies, they will be greatly reduced, particularly for older Americans.  Story continues

GOP Senate and House 'Repeal and Replace' HealthCare Bills Attack Women's Reproductive Rights

MP3 Interview with Andrea Flynn, fellow at the Roosevelt Institute, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

reproductive

Of all the constituents that stand to lose if the Republican healthcare legislation is signed into law, women – and especially low-income women and women of color – will likely pay the highest price. That's because many of the services that were required to be included under Obamacare would no longer be guaranteed, including access to birth control, pregnancy care, delivery of babies and newborn care, which are all medical services mandated in every industrialized nation in the world’s healthcare system, except for the U.S.  Story continues

Disability Rights Activists Arrested in Direct Action Protest Opposing GOP's Deep Medicaid Cuts

MP3 Interview with Mike Oxford, executive director of the Topeka, Kansas Independent Living Resource Center and a national organizer with the disability rights group ADAPT, conducted by Scott Harris

disability

As Senate Republicans unveiled their version of legislation to repeal and replace Obamacare on June 22, disability rights activists in wheelchairs and some on ventilators, staged what they described as a “Die-In,” outside Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s office. When 60 protesters from the disability rights group ADAPT blocked access to the GOP leader’s office, Capitol Hill police moved in, but encountered passive resistance, which led to some activists being subjected to rough treatment. Fifty protesters were arrested.  Story continues
