We talk with Scott Braddock, editor of the Quorum Report, about the political situation in Texas. Gov Abbott has NOT, in his 26 years with experience in law enforcement, been able to eliminate rape (Texas has the highest rate of forcible rape), even though the latest draconian anti abortion law in Texas is in place. Abbott has also angered both Democrats and Republicans with his approach to governing: the pandemic, and his goal of emulating Trump. There is a population shift in Texas, due to the influx of people from other states.
We talk with Prof. Robert Hockett of Cornell University, and Bill Curry, progressive writer and pundit. We discuss big Pharma, their greed, asking for more support, and refusing to negotiate drug prices.
