In today's episode, host Jaye Pool discusses the passage of the American Health Care Act (AHCA), also known as Trumpcare, in the House of Representatives. Jaye discusses health care as a moral and life issue, and calls for the 217 representatives voting for the Trumpcare bill to be accountable to the constituents in the districts they serve. In addition, Jaye discusses why many of the 217 refuse to answer for their health care vote, and shares grassroots tips for progressives to begin tearing down the Republican wall of electoral safety from the ground up.
