5/15 Casual Friday: Cliff Schecter & Judy Gold

May 15, 2015

Cliff Schecter explains just how disgusting and stunning it is that Republicans are cutting Amtrak spending the day after last weeks Amtrak crash that caused several deaths. Why the Republicans are undermining the American economy. Why more Amtrak funding would have saved lives. Why increasing infrastructure spending would be a win for everyone. Obama pushes the Senate to pass the awful TPP trade agreement. Does NAFTA threaten the Volker rule? Why TPP could do even more to undo financial regulation. How to play the far right on TPP. Jeb Bush can’t decide whether he backs the invasion of Iraq or not.

Comedian Judy Gold explains acting in a new off Broadway musical, Clinton The Musical. Do Republicans go to play? What is it like to work with Louis CK? Jim Gaffigan’s new show and why being in a play forces you to be on time. Are boys easer to raise? Rewarding kids sarcasm is it a good thing or a bad thing? Why Judy thinks we use our phones to much and listen to Jusy’s new podcast.
