This week on BTL, a quick and dirty discussion of Trump's tax proposal and the ongoing House and Senate budget negotiations. Plus, Trump's anti-Veteran tendencies re-emerge and we've finally found a conspiracy theory we can get behind! Don't believe us? #DontCare. And finally, all the dirt on this week's DNC meeting in Sin City!
This week on BTL...it's updates from #ResistanceRecess! People got active, got creative, and got angry in all the best possible ways. Plus, the DNC chair race results, why Donald Trump should be careful about pushing the paper of record too far, and updates on all the new and exciting (and terrible) laws and policies that will make life for even legal immigrants a living hell. Come for the terrible news, stay for the many many many creative ways constituents are coming up with to get their reps' attention. Oh, and join us for our own little action as well!
Happy New Year, guys! This week on a (finally all new!) BTL...Congress gets off to the most embarrassing start possible, but they're finally sworn in so it's time to hit the phones and let them know we're watching! Plus, Donald Trump knows not what he does or thinks, but he seems to get credit for whatever happens to work out that day anyway. None of this, of course, is thanks to his cabinet appointments, which only seem to get worse with each passing moment, and none of it will change if the Democratic leadership in the Senate has anything to say about it. Oh, and Trump rang in the new year with a mobster named "Joey No Socks" because...of course. All this and tons more on our first podcast of 2017! Buckle up!
