Today on The Signorile Show!

4:05pm ET - Tomorrow, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in King v.Burwell, which represents the first major challenge to the Affordable Care Act since the justices upheld its individual mandate in 2012. Joining us today to discuss the case and what it will mean for millions of Americans if the plaintiffs in the case are successful is Igor Volsky, Contributing Editor of ThinkProgress.org.  You can also follow Igor on twitter.

4:35pm ET - Last year, the Guardian reported on the use of forced labor in the multibillion-dollar Thai fishing industry; and as a result many Western retailers and officials promised reform.  Yet, since that report emerged media attention has evaporated and food retailers have returned to their normal routine of buying up cheap, seemingly abundant seafood from a murky supply chain.  Joining us today to discuss the use of slave labor to procure your fish dinner is Michelle Chen, a contributor at The Nation who wrote all about the lax regulation and endemic corruption that exists in the international seafood market.  You can also follow Michelle on twitter.
