June 18, 2012

Abe Bonowitz from the National Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty on waning support for capital punishment policy, the devastating emotional toll and the truth about its costs. Also, Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown on the fiscal cliff, Bush tax cuts, the financial fraud task force and more in a wide ranging discussion.  In the better half, pushing limits of solar system, implications if SCOTUS overturns ACA and Romney’s bad, but not surprising, behavior.  Your calls and IMs.
