Trump said he wouldn't cut Medicare and other popular program in his speech, then the very next day asked Congress to pass a budget with massive cuts to Medicare and the rest of the social safety net. How can Democrats get through to people who believe such blatant lies? And as Reaganism causes inequality to continue to increase, why do we have to cut support for the most vulnerable to fund taxes for the very rich? Will it take a disaster to reconsider the consequences of Republican policies for working people?


Progressive Congressman Ro Khanna looks at these and other issues facing Congress as we head into election season -- and anti-tax activist Grover Norquist engages Thom in a lively debate.
