The New Health Law and Debt Resistance
We spoke with Dave Johnson who is one of hundreds that joined Kevin Zeese and Margaret Flowers in being Conscientious Objectors to the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare). We discuss why we are COs and about building a movement against corporate health care and for a single payer or Medicare for all system. Then we spoke with Mike Andrews from Strike Debt, a project that developed out of Occupy Wall Street. The new expanded version of the Debt Resister’s Operations Manual was just released. This manual is used to teach about debt, how to deal with personal debt and how to organize in your community to challenge it. This show was taped on March 31 to air on April 14.
