Rising Up With Sonali

People’s Budget Offers Progressive Vision for Govt Spending

As the Republican Party and Donald Trump reach a spending agreement to avert a government shutdown, we’ll turn today to Hunter Blair of the Economic Policy Institute to explore a progressive vision of government spending. And, Allan J. Lichtman, the professor who controversially predicted that Trump would win the election is now predicting that he will be impeached. Lichtman will join us on today’s show to discuss his new book called simply The Case for Impeachment. Finally, as a new televised version of Margaret Atwood’s dystopian feminist book The Handmaid’s Tale is released, our film critic and pop culture correspondent Stephanie Abraham will review the new show.

Hosted by Sonali Kolhatkar.
