Recovery & Resistance: Sandy, Obama, and the Fight for Health Care
The past ten days have seen the utter devastation of Hurricane Sandy and the triumph of Barack Obama. From ignoring heavily affected poor and working class communities to framing Obama’s victory as a triumph for democracy, the media has shown, once again, its subservience to power and complicity in the continued crimes of the ruling class.

Also, I speak with Dr. Elizabeth Rosenthal of Physicians for a National Health Program (PNHP) about single-payer or Medicare for All demands.
