This week on BTL, healthcare reform didn't get through before the holiday, but we're still worried about Mitch McConnell's evil plans to woo new GOPers to the cause. Trump, meanwhile, is so worried that he's changed his mind about his position yet again. On the Democratic side though, mind changes are a good thing! The writing on the wall is increasingly clear - Medicare for all is going to be a defining issue of 2020. All that plus Gorsuch being a problem already, a shake-up at Our Revolution, and Donald Trump's latest Twitter shenanigans.
This week on BLT...it's chaos at the Nevada Democratic Convention! Sit-ins, security, fleeing...all the best kinds of excitement! Plus, we've got election results from West Virginia and Nebraska, a week of Donald Trump trying to figure out how to be a frontrunner (answer: insist that you're very smart but don't confirm anything else), and SCOTUS updates from the a newly 4-4 court! Apparently their new strategy is to stop making rulings until we can break the stalemate. All that plus the intersection of politics and gossip like you've never experienced it before! Welcome to Rep. Grayson v. Sen. Reid, the ultimate battle. It's yet another week of glory, so don't miss it!
There was finally a Democratic debate and we got our first (and hopefully last) look at Lincoln Chafee and Reagan bobblehead Jim Webb! No Biden as of yet but don't worry, he's STILL thinking. Still. Plus, we finally agree with Ben Carson on something so we're a little shocked and confused about that. And, we've got the lowdown on the the six GOP candidates that should probably just leave the race right this moment and one candidate who may or may not be using his potentially fake campaign as a cover for a new, very real, very boring clothing brand. This plus Clinton news, Fox news, fundraising news, Twitter news and so much more!
