Can Activism Stop the GOP Tax Bill?

As Republicans scramble to win passage of their massive 500-page tax reform bill through the reconciliation process we’ll turn to our news correspondent Arun Gupta for a look at how naked the greed is, what the Democratic Party’s strategy is, and how progressive activists are fighting to stop the bill. Then author Gordon Lafer will join me to discuss his latest book, The One Percent Solution: How Corporations Are Remaking America One State at a Time.
