The Michelangelo Signorile Show on SiriusXM PROGRESS ch.127

Over the past few weeks Secretary Hillary Clinton, has been voicing her concerns about Sen. Bernie Sanders Healthcare plan, saying that it will raise taxes on the middle class and destroy the Affordable Care Act. However, Sen, Sanders campaign has stated that the planned tax increases would be more than offset by a decline in how much most Americans pay for their health care through premiums, deductibles, and co-pays; and on Sunday night, hours before the Democratic presidential debate in South Carolina, Sen. Bernie Sanders released details of his healthcare plan.  Joining me today to talk all about Sen. Sanders plan for “Medicare for All” is Igor Volsky the Deputy Director for the Center for American Progress Action Fund and the Director of Video and Contributing Editor of ThinkProgress.org

Over the past few months Minnesota has been experiencing an increase in crimes against Native American women and local activists there say the deaths and disappearances of these women are linked to human trafficking and furthermore they claim that police aren’t taking the issue seriously.  Joining me today to talk all about what recent spate of cases involving Native American women and the connections to human trafficking is Zoe Sullivan an Independent Journalist focusing on gender and social equity issues for The Guardian US.
