Progressive politics, news & talk hosted by David Waldman

Greg Dworkin rounds up a sampling of headlines for us: the Canadian train derailment, doctors speaking out against the wave of abortion restrictions being pushed by Republicans in state after state, Adam Kokesh's arrest, and a new Q-Poll reflecting a big shift in public perceptions of Snowden and the liberty/security balance in general. In other news, apparently cloture votes are down in the 113th Congress. But doesn't Senate gridlock seem to be getting worse? Can both be happening at once? Absolutely. How? Listen & find out. Armando jumped in to help out with some interesting stories & talking points, and we get all philosophical about the nature of crime, graft, constitutional rights, and more. A good exercise in knocking the issues of the day slightly off-axis and looking at them from a different angle.
