This week on BTL, we clicked our heels and the wicked AHCA is gone! The wicked AHCA is gone! What an adventure of a week, what a ride. What began with strong arm tactics on Monday devolved into bizarre pleas by Thursday and outright failure by Friday and we take you through the whole thing, step by step! BUT WAIT THERE'S MORE! We've got updates on the stories that didn't get the headlines this week - the odd Nunes revelations about Trump's dealings abroad, the Gorsuch hearing, and some terrible things that are happening to your privacy. Relive the glory of Paul Ryan's massive defeat (long time coming) with us!
This week on a bicoastal BTL, it's tales of the largest march in US history! We got crowd counts as well as stories of attending on both coasts! (Well done LA! 750,000?!) And guess what wasn't the largest gathering in US history? Duh, the inauguration, despite what Trump and Sean Spicer's "Alternative Facts" may claim. Plus, we've got a rundown of the week's insano cabinet confirmation hearings, the already mounting tragedy that is Trump's first days in office, and, most importantly, the real deal with Sean Spicer's five-year feud with Dippin' Dots.
This week on the podcast... Don't you want to have as much fun as Bill Clinton is having in this picture? Then listen to us discuss the DNC and all that transpired behind the scenes on this week's podcast! Plus, Trump's worst media week ever, and some nifty campaigning ideas for the progressives among us!
When, in the course of daily conversation, we mention calling, emailing, or visiting politicians about the issues we care about, we’re regularly shocked to discover that very few young people know they have the ability and most importantly the right to pay their public representatives a visit.
Yes, we said visit. In person. At their office. Uninvited.
