"All this has done is just sap our credibility and sapped our leverage to be able to ask for anything now that we're not a trustworthy actor. It's extremely damaging to diplomacy and puts the U.S. in the position of the only tool that you can actually view as credible is military force."

– Jamal Abdi, policy director with the National Iranian American Council, on Trump's decertification of the international Iran Nuclear Agreement

Trump's Decertification of Iran Nuclear Deal Isolates and Weakens U.S.

MP3 Interview with Jamal Abdi, policy director with the National Iranian American Council, conducted by Scott Harris

iran

President Donald Trump announced on Oct. 13 that he is formally “decertifying” the international nuclear agreement with Iran. While Trump has stated that “The Iran deal was one of the worst and most one-sided transactions the United States ever entered into,” he declined to terminate the Iran nuclear agreement. Instead, he moved the issue to Congress, where legislators will engage in a 60-day period of debate on whether or not to re-impose economic sanctions against Iran that had been in effect before the nuclear deal was signed in 2015. Re-imposition of the sanctions will effectively withdraw the U.S. from the nuclear agreement.  Story continues

With Obamacare Subsidy Cut, Trump Will Raise Insurance Premiums, Reduce Coverage

MP3 Interview with Eagan Kemp, health care policy advocate with Public Citizen, conducted by Scott Harris

health

After several major attempts to repeal the Affordable Care Act, commonly known as Obamacare, President Trump issued two executive orders on Oct. 12 with the stated goal of dismantling his predecessor’s landmark healthcare legislative achievement. The first executive order asks the Labor Department to loosen rules that permit small companies to form associations and buy the kind of coverage available to larger businesses. These plans would have lower standards and cover far fewer healthcare costs. The second executive order ends $9 billion in subsidies paid under the Obamacare program to reduce the cost of health insurance for low-income Americans. Ironically, nearly 70 percent of those benefiting from subsidies cut by the president live in states Trump won in the 2016 presidential election.  Story continues

Trump Guts Obamacare Birth Control Mandate in Another Blow to Reproductive Rights

MP3 Interview with Laurie Sobel, associate director of women's health policy at the Kaiser Family Foundation, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

birthcontrol

In early October, the Trump administration announced a major rollback in coverage under the Affordable Care Act, which the Republican-dominated Congress has so far failed to repeal. Under the ACA, a suite of more than a dozen birth control options were required to be made available at no cost for women to choose the method best for them. That element of Obamacare was immediately challenged in court based on the argument that employers should not be forced to provide birth control if they objected based on their religious beliefs. A convoluted system was later devised to respond to those concerns, which allowed women to receive the birth control insurance coverage they needed.  Story continues
