Trumpcare is a disaster — fight for single-payer!
The Trump administration and the Republican millionaires in Congress have passed a new health insurance bill that amounts to a death sentence to millions of workers. It is estimated that at least 24 million working and poor people will lose their coverage. Lower-income workers, the elderly and those with pre-existing conditions will be hardest hit, and Medicaid has been targeted for destruction. The ultra-rich will receive hundreds of billions in new tax breaks. How can we build a movement to make health care a universal right and beat back the Trump agenda? While fighting to defend the positive aspects of the Affordable Care Act, there is a growing movement for single-payer health coverage, to eliminate parasitic insurance companies altogether.
The untold history of the U.S. and North Korea
Fresh off its illegal strike against Syria, the Trump administration has increased its military threats against North Korea. Meanwhile, relentless propaganda in the corporate media portrays North Korea as a crazed nation that threatens all of humanity. But who is really threatening who? What is the real history of U.S. military aggression in and around the Korean peninsula, what does the North Korean government want, and what is the road to a lasting peace? Liberation Forum presents this week on this untold history, as North Korea is once again in the crosshairs of the U.S. Empire.
