BREAD AND ROSES 10.11.15
HOST: Joel Saxe
This episode of the Bread and Roses Show is dedicated to Frank Olbris, a tireless activist who led efforts to advance single-payer healthcare in Massachusetts. Frank died in September 2013. In a 2011 interview, Frank discusses regional activism for single-payer and shares research on the Veterans Administration as an effective government medical services delivery model. The show includes excerpts from a press conference by Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders on federal efforts to enact single-payer and a National Nurses United rally held on Wall Street calling for a financial transaction tax to fund single-payer health.
