Hour 1: Cenk and John Iadarola. Rand Paul has announced his bid for President in 2016 as a different kind of Republican candidate. John outlines the radically insane cuts included in his proposed budgetary agenda. His cuts to foreign assistance to countries like Israel indicate his label as a Libertarian. The problem with those cuts is that he backpedaled on previous tough statements on Israeli aid. Tax credits for poor and lower class citizens would be eliminated as well. Rand Paul’s campaign website sells several humorous products for your everyday libertarian.

After Indiana caught hell for passing discriminatory laws against gays in the form of religious freedom, a proposed fix to the law has been introduced to specifically create a caveat that excluded gays from the discrimination. Cenk points out that they’ve ironically given gays special protections from the discrimination the law created. The new law would allow people to discriminate against anyone else except gays.

Hour 2: Ana joins Cenk for SCS. Video of Pat Robertson giving his 2 cents on the anti-gay laws in Indiana.

Ana thinks they think this way because many Millennials are underemployed and can’t afford to responsibly get married and have to hold off on sex. A Nebraska proposal would allow dirty fracking water from out of state to be dumped into the state’s disposal system, which could seep into the drinking water. One farmer in the state went to a committee hearing about the issue and asked the panel if they’d drink the water contaminated with fracking ingredients, which they refused to answer.
