The Ryancare Blame Game. The biggest broken political promise in history? Will Republicans be able to regroup and eventually return to health care reform? What is the new future of the Trump Agenda? We offer historical perspective on similar defeats sustained early on in prior administrations -- including Reagan, Clinton and Obama. Meanwhile, we listen to Judge Jeanine Pirro's lambasting of Speaker Paul Ryan, calling for him to "step down" forthwith. Also, we visit with paterfamilias John Andrews on how to view these recent setbacks. Should the House Freedom Caucus rethink their priorities? Plus, we consider Sen. Chuck Schumer's threats of "filibuster" against SCOTUS nominee Neil Gorsuch. A nuclear-option gift for the GOP? We include additional vignettes on Medicaid births and Obama Administration surveillance of Trump. With Listener Calls & Music via Morrissey, Jigsaw and Weezer.
