The President has flip-flopped on many issues in recent days, reversing himself on issues that he was pretty outspoken about during the campaign.  There is also the ongoing investigation into ties between Russia and Trump campaign officials.  In this episode, we discuss why this latest round of policy shifts may be more damaging than previous ones.

Going Nuclear

Muslim Ban 2.0

Mar. 9th, 2017

     President Trump signed a new executive order that banned immigrants from 6 majority-Muslim countries, replacing a previous order that was stricken down by the courts.  This one is a little more logical and addresses specific legal concerns that the courts had with the previous one.  But does that make it sound policy?  We discuss in today’s episode.

Root and Branch

     Republicans have been promising for the better part of 7 years to repeal Obamacare should they get the chance.  But voters have other ideas.  What’s the Republican plan for dealing with the repealing and replacing of the health care law?  We discuss in today’s episode.
