Governor Gavin Newsom, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard

Episode 69,   May 18, 2019, 05:01 AM

Governor Gavin Newsom wants to dramatically change the healthcare system in California.

He believes if every Californian is forced to buy healthcare it will lower premiums for everyone. He wants to extend Medi-Cal benefits to all undocumented immigrants under 26 years old.

The Governor also weighs in on laws restricting abortions in Alabama, Georgia, and elsewhere. Newsom supports boycotts of the film industries in those states.

We also speak to presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard, who is promising a non-interventionist foreign policy. She's hoping to make history as the first president who is a millennial, female, Hindu, and an Iraq War veteran.

Our panel analyzes it all: Caroline Heldman, Mike Murphy, and Dan Schnur. This podcast includes an extended panel discussion that had to be edited down for TV.
