Karoli Kuns on Trump’s Latest Outrages; David Dayen: How Congress Just Screwed Puerto Rico

This week, we'll get our wonk on with Austin Frakt. He's a man of many affiliations -- health care economist at the Department of Veterans Affairs, and an associate professor at Boston University and visting scholar at Harvard. Austin tells us about "all-payer" rate-setting, and how it could provide another option for progressive health care reform in the coming years.  

 

Then Crooks and Liars managing editor Karoli Kuns will join us to vent about Donald Trump, and some of the terrible things he'd done of late. There's no normalization of that guy on this show.

 

Finally, we'll speak with David Dayen, who wrote a piece this week for The Intercept about how Congress just gave the suffering people -- US citizens -- of Puerto Rico yet another huge middle finger.
