Out d’Coup | Raging @ GOP ACA Repeal; Echoes of Amidala; Repressing Protest; Scott Wagner Assaults Media; PA GOP Clown Party Shit Show; Krazner Catches Fire; and, More!
It’s Friday, May 5 2017. Welcome to Raging Chicken’s Out d’Coup podcast. It’s Cinco de Mayo. I am Kevin Mahoney, editor and founder of Raging Chicken Press. Each week I talk to our Capitol muckraker-in-chief, Sean Kitchen, about the good, the bad, and the ugly in state and national politics.
Nothing unites Republicans like kicking people off healthcare and giving the richest 1% a huge tax break. Bud Light now the the official beer of repeal. Rocky revisioned Wall Street Trust Fund White Guy. Echos of Senator Amidala heard around the world. Screws tightened on freedom of assembly as crackdown on protesters deepens. Plus will the last vestiges of neoliberals be able to hold out against fascism in France?
Pennsylvania Senator Scott Wagner assaults media activist then bars media at GOP event. PA House Leader Turzai considers throwing his hat in the Gubernatorial Ring for what would amount to the ultimate Clown Party Shit Show in a PA GOP Primary. Major endorsements for Larry Krazner in Philly Attorney general race from Our Revolution, MoveOn, and other progressive organizations. Republicans in the PA House plan on voting on an anti-Sancturary bill on Tuesday.
