We start by talking about Parkland between two South Florida natives, then move on talking about Donald Trump's administration and Betsy DeVos (11:05) then talk a little about PA-18 (17:45) and wrap up by making an endorsement (21:10).
For those loyal folks out there: We're back! We talk about the shitdown (or shutdown, depending on your keyboard) and how Se. Schumer screwed things up, then we pivot to Russia like a desperate Republican campaign and we finish by talking about this years elections.
We talk about the recent victories on health care and in Florida around an important State Senate election -- congrats to Annette Taddeo. We chat about movies, concerts, learning languages and we teach you how to avoid going to jail while recommending some folks go to jail. Lock them up!
Plus a fun chat on whether Trump is a rationale actor in general. I think you can guess what we think after his taking on the NFL.
The pod tries to make sense of a political situation where the President lacks a moral compass and where the Republican party comes to grip with the racist undertones they've fanned for decades.
We also talk about how the Democratic Party should deal with candidates who are anti-choice and Netroots Nation 17.
We celebrate another [probably temporary] victory, this one more dramatic than the last thanks to Sens. Collins, Murkowski & McCain. Franco teaches Ryan how to say "Reince" while the Mooch is brought on to give America the worst visual we've seen in years. We discuss what a change in Chief of Staff could mean in the day to day of this White House.
Before playing this podcast, please give this Cranberries tune a whirl.
Sunday night it seemed as though Trumpcare was dead. Then repeal seemed dead on Tuesday. By Wednesday, Senators were meeting around Trumpcare again. We finally recorded knowing that we know nothing a la Jon Snow. But we can't imagine a bill with 32 million uninsured is going to be more popular.
We wrap up on the GA-06 race from last week. We beat down bad ideas around Nancy Pelosi and then move on to Trumpcare. It's a comprehensive pod!
Let's talk about the sixth, baby.
Georgia's sixth congressional district is a heavily Republican leaning district. Yet, it's now the most expensive race in the history of our country and being presented as a make or break for the Democratic Party in the aftermath of the Trumpocalypse.
We talk with Nse Ufot, the wonderful Executive Director of the New Georgia Project who has been working day and night to turn key groups out and remake the electorate. She teaches us why this district is a microcosm of Georgia, a state that she explains is very competitive and challenges our perception of. Then she gives us the feel for what's happening on the ground in this district that carries the hopes of the Resistance.
