Hour 1: Iadarola and Jimmy Dore hosting. A deal has been reached on a budget deal between Dems and GOP Congressional leadership in order to raise the debt ceiling. Although the deal cuts social programs and still gives tons of money to military spending, radical Republicans are against going through with it. A new poll shows that Clinton now leads Bernie 65% to 24%.
Hour 2: Cenk, Hannah, and Brett for SCS. A SC police officer assigned to a high school was videotaped seriously assaulting a female student by flinging her out of her chair. A Northern California police dept is planning to begin using nunchucks as a ‘control weapon’ when dealing with suspects. Cenk is in favor of this, as he hopes this has less lethal results than gunfire. At an anti-Planned Parenthood rally, one woman launched her anti protest by yelling, “Dear PP, thanks for helping with my yeast infection!”
