It’s not just U.S. politicians considering major cuts to programs that serve struggling families. Mary O’Hara, a columnist with The Guardian, joins with an update on how austerity is playing out in the United Kingdom. Next, Sara Goldrick-Rab, author of Paying the Price: College Costs, Financial Aid, and the Betrayal of the American Dream, sheds light on the overlooked issue of hunger on college campuses — and how the current financial aid system is failing many low-income students. Finally, continuing our Resistance Works series, Rebecca speaks with an activist from a New Jersey chapter of Indivisible to get the inside scoop on how they helped flip their Republican Congressman on Trumpcare. But first, with efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act dead for now, Rebecca and Jeremy sit down with Topher Spiro to talk about what’s next for healthcare.
