Winning back the White Working Class from Donald Trump: Harold Meyerson

Harold Meyerson of The American Prospect proposes concrete programs to win back white working class voters who switched from Obama in 2012 to Trump in 2016–starting with infrastructure and public works programs that include rural America, where support for Trump was high.  The New Deal provides examples of how government programs like the TVA can stimulate economic growth in poor regions.
plus George Zornick of The Nation talks about the Senate Republicans’ healthcare fiasco–we call it “Trumpcare,” even though Trump probably doesn’t understand much about it.  We also talk about future of Obamacare, and single payer/Medicare-for-all coverage.
and legendary LA activist attorney Carol Sobel makes the case for the rights of homeless people–she’s sued the LAPD and the city of LA dozens of times and won many crucial victories.  She recently received a lifetime achievement award from the ACLU of Southern Califonira.
