In his first show after a three week vacation, Stephen Colbert interviewed Richard Kirsch, the national campaign director for Health Care for America Now!, the coalition of over 1,000 organizations working for quality, affordable health care for all, this year. Health Access California is proud to be the lead partner organization for HCAN in California.
I’ve known Richard for over a decade, as he is on leave from being the longtime executive director of Citizen Action of New York, where I got to know him when I was at New Jersey Citizen Action. He has his own humor, but in these situations, his job was to be the straight man, which he did well despite the grilling by Colbert. Colbert’s questions were only slightly more ridiculous than some of the allegations thrown out by right-wing media. Enjoy.
