April 15, 2017: United Isn’t Alone; A Stealthier Assault on the ACA; Trump v. Kim Jong Un Won’t End Well
We kick off this week's show with an interview with Helaine Olen, who wrote in The New York Times this week that United's decision to bloody a paying customer for refusing to "voluntarily" give up his seat is a microcosm of some larger, and genuinely troubling trends in our society.
Then we'll be joined by Christine Grimaldi, a reporter for Rewire News, to talk about how Donald Trump and HHS chief Tom Price can and may undermine the Affordable Care Act without Congress -- and how those moves might hurt women and LGBT people.
Finally, we'll speak with Christine Ahn, co-founder of the Korea Policy Institute and international coordinator for WomenCrossDmx.org, for her insights into what rising tensions between the US and North Korea are really about.
