What's at Stake: Healthcare for All

Free Speech TV (FSTV) and Manhattan Neighborhood Network (MNN) co-hosted a “health care for all” town hall, led by veteran journalist Laura Flanders and produced by Globalvision. “What’s at Stake? Health Care for All” features a panel of experts who discuss single payer health care options. Featured panelists include:

  •        Joshua Holland, Contributing Writer, The Nation
  •        Nina Turner, President, Our Revolution
  •        Donna Smith, Executive Director, Progressive Democrats of America
Following failed Republican attempts to repeal the Affordable Care Act, President Trump issued an executive order to sabotage his predecessor’s signature policy victory by terminating the health care subsidies that underlie the program. Amidst all the activity on the right to dismantle Obamacare, leaders on the left are now pushing their own alternative: universal health care. Last month, U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders introduced his “Medicare for All” legislation, backed by 16 co-sponsors, including NY Senator Kirsten Gillibrand. Some progressives, however, have expressed reservations about the proposal. Turner and Smith have argued in favor of the Sanders legislation, while Holland expressed concern in his op-ed “Medicare-for-All Isn’t the Solution for Universal Health Care” in The Nation. The town hall was taped in front of a live audience at the MNN El Barrio Firehouse Community Media Center in East Harlem, where guests had the opportunity to ask the panel questions. “What’s at Stake: Health Care for All” will premiere on Wednesday, November 8 at 8 p.m. ET on MNN-FSTV (Spectrum 1301 and FiOS channel 39 for Manhattan viewers or streaming live online worldwide at mnn.org) and on Free Speech TV (DISH 9415, DIRECTV 348 or streaming on Roku, Amazon Fire, Android TV and freespeech.org).
