DHS overreach, progressive Dem victories, the Covid-19 economy
Naomi Karavani opens the show with a review of how the Department of Homeland Security has been used to police peaceful protesters and shut down the George Floyd protesters. DHS used military equipment and some of the most aggressive law enforcement forces against protesters in a show of force that has previously been saved for asylum seekers. Progressive Democrats had a great week as Cori Bush won a primary and Rashida Tlaib beat a DNC-backed challenger; the return to school in the middle of a pandemic went just as poorly as you'd expect, and more.
Anders Lee reports on the winners and losers in the coronavirus economy. A big winner is the popularity of the Medicare For All movement championed by Sen. Bernie Sanders. However, the DNC chose not to capitalize on this moment by opposing a universal healthcare program. Natalie McGill and Naomi discuss an expansion of voting rights in Iowa, how the rich are getting around the dangers of reopening the schools, and more.
