Episode 42: Democratic Litmus Test Misfire: How About Tax Cuts For Rich, Not Womens' Rights?

Episode 42: Democratic Litmus Test Misfire: How About Tax Cuts For Rich, Not Womens' Rights?

Episode 42: Sometimes, you have to wonder: are Democratic Party leaders dumb or just ideologically bankrupt? Jonathan talks to a leading abortion rights advocate, Vicki Saporta, about the foolish suggestion floated by some Democratic leaders that the party would not have a litmus test--and, thus, support with money and resources--candidates who are not pro-choice. How stupid is that since womens' reproductive rights are central to the party's platform, not to mention a human right that animates many voters? And speaking of litmus tests, maybe the next step under consideration is to give a pass to Democrats willing to support the massive Republican tax cuts for the rich about to be unveiled any day—and Jonathan digs into key aspects of that future robbery with tax expert Matt Gardner. Our Robber Baron of the week is Terry Gou, the billionaire owner of Foxconn.
