Politics And Reality Radio: Trump’s ACA Sabotage Is Worse Than You Thought

This week, we kick off the show with a discussion of the GOP's plans for "tax reform" with Frank Clemente, director of Americans for Tax Fairness. Spoiler alert: Bad economics + staggering hypocrisy about deficits = a muddled mess.

Then we welcome Sam Berger, a senior policy advisor at The Center for American Progress who's been tracking the Trump regime's efforts to undermine the Affordable Care Act. You've no doubt heard talk of "sabotage," but it's probably worse than you thought.

Finally, Salon columnist Amanda Marcotte joins us to consider whether the outpouring of revelations of sexual harassment and other abuses that have followed Harvey Weinstein's fall signal a paradigm change or just a bump in misogyny's long road.

Playlist:
Brave Combo: "Jeopardy"
Mozart Heroes: "Mozart's Symphony No 40/ Metallica's Enter the Sandman"
