7/25 Voter Surpression, Privatizing the Postal Service?

July 25, 2012

On today’s show Sam discussed the string of scandals rocking the Philadelphia charter school system, Pennsylvania Republicans continued to push voter purge bills And Peter Orszag writes an incredibly disingenuous argument for privatizing the Postal Service. In the better half, Sam talked about Romney backer Suzy Welch saying Obama comes from the “other” America and a Romney aide speaking off the record in the UK saying that Obama doesn’t respect our “Anglo Saxon Heritage.” Wonder what they’re referring to?
