Podcast: Paul Ryan, accountability, Howard County

June 15, 2017 | Francoise Stovall

Jessica and Laura stepped away from the Comey hearing to talk about Paul Ryan’s agenda that serves his rich donors. After holding more than 50 fundraisers in a month (and not a single townhall), his worldview and priorities are skewed toward the donor class, not regular people. Then they discuss government oversight, with the ethics commission in Wisconsin going easy on the politicians its supposed to oversee. And finally some good news out of Howard County, Maryland, where citizen-funded elections were passed with a veto-proof majority.
