Cory Booker's Vote Shows Why To Get Money Out Of Politics

Big Picture Panel: Kai Newkirk, Democracy Spring/99Rise & Alex Pfeiffer, The Daily Caller. Over the course of a seven hour period that began Wednesday night and lasted until early Thursday morning - Democrats forced a series of amendment-level votes on healthcare policies that are overwhelmingly popular with the American people. The idea behind the so-called "vote-a-rama" was to expose the Republican party's far-right healthcare agenda, and it worked: Senate Republicans are now on record opposing, among other things, Obamacare's protections for people with preexisting conditions, Medicaid expansion, and an amendment banning cuts to Medicare. Unfortunately, the vote-a-rama also exposed the right-wing agenda of some Democrats. A measure that would have allowed Americans to buy cheaper pharmaceuticals from Canada failed because 13 Democrats crossed the aisle and voted against it. One such Democrat was New Jersey Senator Cory Booker - who has received more donations from the pharmaceutical industry in recent years than any other Democrat in the Senate ($267,338). Booker's vote was demonstrably not in the best interest of the American people. Doesn't that show why it's more important than ever that we get money out of politics?

Is America At Risk Of Turning Into A kleptocracy?

Big Picture Panel: Charles Sauer, The Market Institute & Dave McCulloch, Capitol Media Partners. Things got even weirder when Trump started talking about how - as president - he was going to deal with the giant conflict of interest presented by his personal business empire. After refusing once again to release his tax returns - Trump brought some tax lawyer named Sheri Dillon on stage to explain why he's not doing the constitutional thing and divesting himself from the Trump Organization. According to Dillon - his plan is to instead just hand things off to his sons Eric and Donald Jr. for the next four years. Eric and Donald Jr won't be allowed to make any new foreign deals - and will theoretically have to have domestic deals reviewed by an ethics advisor - but Daddy Donald will still be the official "on paper" owner of the Trump Organization. In other words - he still has a giant conflict of interest on his hands. Republicans just spent the past 8 years railing against President Obama and so-called crony capitalism - how can they possibly feel comfortable with this situation?
