Counterpoint with Scott Harris

1) William Hartung, Senior Research Fellow Quincy Institute for Responsible Statecraft examines the urgent issues addressed in his recent article, “Biden is Right to Rule Out a ‘No Fly Zone’ in Ukraine,” and the extreme danger and high cost of this new stage in the West’s Cold War with Russia.

2) Nathan Taft, Senior Digital Campaigner with the group Stand.earth, discusses how the current war in Ukraine is focusing attention on the harmful effects of our world’s ongoing addiction to fossil fuels, and the campaign by more than 200 groups calling on President Biden to invoke the Defense Protection Act for Renewables and resist short-sighted domestic fossil fuel policies.

3) Journalist Libby Watson discusses the issues addressed in her recent article, “Millions may lose Medicaid this year,” that reports on the end of a federal mandate that protected Americans enrolled in Medicaid from losing their coverage during the COVID pandemic as well as the major failings of the US healthcare system that she regularly covers in her Sick Note newsletter.

4) Luis Luna, an organizer with the Working Families Party of Connecticut, talks about a bill that a coalition of groups is now working to pass in the state legislature that would allow undocumented immigrants access to the state’s Medicaid program, HUSKY.
