October 4, 2017

Donald Trump stumbles into promising debt relief for Puerto Rico and Mick Mulvaney walks it back.

Ian Millhiser, from the Center for American Progress, explains the a major redistricting decision that could overturn the Wisconsin Republican Party’s effort to gerrymander. Justice Kennedy’s tell and possibly good new in the gerrymandering case. The long term danger of one party state governments. Neil Gorsuch is a dick. Lawrence Lessig’s theory for why we need to abolish the electoral college. Further Republican efforts to disenfranchise voters. The Fredrich Case could harm public sector unions. Forced arbitration and why it favors corporations and Constitutional case on religious freedom.

On The Fun Half: Donald Trump seems to believe crazy rumor that Puerto Rican truck drivers have gone on strike. America’s Gun horror. How the Democrats should play the Alabama Senate race and your calls and IMs.
