As we wrap up our series on “the way forward,” we will talk about a subject that touches nearly everyone in the nation: health care. How will Congress and the President deal with the long-threatened repeal of the Affordable Care Act, and what are the ramifications for the poor across America?
Our guest today is Sister Simone Campbell, Executive Director of NETWORK, a Catholic lobby for social justice. Simone is an important faith leader in the US and has been on the leading edge of the health care debate for many years. We will talk to her about her organization, her work on reforming the health care system, and what she sees as the short- and long-term steps needed to ensure quality, affordable healthcare for everyone.
