9/19 Republicans Barreling Toward Government Shutdown; New UAW Deadline; IRS Cranks It Up

September 19, 2023

It’s Newsday Tuesday! Sam and Emma break down the biggest headlines of the day. First, they run through updates on the US and Iran’s frozen assets-for-prisoners swap, Canada’s almost-accusation of India’s assassination of a Canadian on Canadian soil, the GOP’s DOA spending plan, Rudy Giuliani’s newest lawsuit, and the IRS continuing their progressive reforms, before parsing through the UAW’s ongoing labor action, and the levels of support they’re getting from Donald Trump and Joe Biden. Next, Sam and Emma dive into the impending GOP-led government shutdown, tackling the fiasco of their internal negotiations, and why their approach to IRS reform would be a net expenditure for the US, before expanding on the specifics of Biden’s renovations of the IRS that the right-wing hates so much. They also dive into the anti-revolutionary anti-authoritarian ideology of the IDW, and wrap up by covering the upcoming special election in Allegheny, PA.

And in the Fun Half: Sam and Emma take on Modern Monetary Theory, Donald Trump wishes the real Jews a happy New Year, and Rudy Giuliani’s meltdown continues. They also dive into the recently released Russell Brand allegations, and the serious evidence backing it up, before watching the right twist themselves in knots to defend Brand, while Megyn Kelly finally breaks the conservative mold and posits that not ALL women are liars. Zane from Minneapolis brings a NATO conversation into the fold, Majid from San Jose asks if Donald Trump is a fascist, and Marco from Memphis asks for help in his city’s upcoming mayoral election, plus, your calls and IMs!
