State Senator Scott Wagner is the darling of the PA right-wing and the state’s homegrown Trump. He’s built himself a loyal caucus thanks to his deep pockets and his embrace of anti-worker, anti-immigrant, and anti-environment politics. Sean walk us through his recent article about Wagner’s proclamation that he has “big balls” as he destroys PA’s unemployment centers.

Kevin highlights two important books for progressive organizing in 2017: Jane McAlevey’s No Shortcuts: Organizing for Power in the New Guilded Age; and, Mark and Paul Engler’s co-written book, This is an Uprising: How Nonviolent Revolt is Shaping the Twenty-First Century.
