11/27 Lina Khan: Obama’s Game of Chicken

November 27, 2012

The New America Foundation’s Lina Khan explained, the growth of agricultural monopolies, why farmers are serfs on their own land, how CongressionalRepublicans killed the Obama Administration’s efforts to reform the industry and why the Administration folded on the issue and Sam and Lina map out where we go from here.

The Better Half: Will Republican billionaires smarten up? Filibuster reform is looking weak, is Walmart just a Mafia family? And former Florida Republican Party leaders admit that efforts to block early voting is about disenfranchising African American voters.

And keep the conversation going on the morning thread!
