Notes: In his new book, The Hidden History of American Healthcare (Berrett-Koehler), popular progressive radio host Thom Hartmann reveals how and why attempts to implement affordable universal healthcare in the United States have been thwarted and what we can do to finally make it a reality. For-profit health insurance is the largest con job ever perpetrated on the American people — one that has cost trillions of dollars and millions of lives since the 1940s. Other countries have shown us that affordable universal healthcare is not only possible but also effective and efficient.

Notes: Taking his typically in-depth, historically informed view, Thom Hartmann asks: What if the Supreme Court didn't have the power to strike down laws? In "The Hidden History of the Supreme Court and the Betrayal of America" (Berrett-Koehler), the progressive radio host explains how the Supreme Court has spilled beyond its constitutional powers – and how we the people should take that power back. Free and open to the public.
