The Fight For Our Kids with Senator Chris Murphy

Episode 214,   Sep 14, 09:00 AM

James and Al shame Republicans for threats of government shutdown and for prioritizing spending cuts that killed the expanded Child Tax Credit and threw millions of kids into poverty.  Then they welcome Senator Chris Murphy to discuss the disastrous repeal of the assault weapons ban, celebrate Biden’s passage of a gun safety bill, and highlight the  potential for a coalition of parents and youth to take further action.  They also look at the electoral prospects in 2024 and ways to expand the democratic coalition to create big wins.  Is a focus on conversion over purity the answer?
