Crystal comes into the studio this week to talk with Laura about the newly unveiled Senate health care bill (written with plenty of input from lobbyists), the spending in the special election in Georgia, and an exciting new case the Supreme Court has agreed to hear that could end partisan gerrymandering as we know it. All this and more!
Chris Tallent of MAYDAY joins Laura to talk about the secret health care bill in the Senate and his experience marching on Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Plus, lots of ways that you can get involved to support a stronger democracy!

Jessica and Laura stepped away from the Comey hearing to talk about Paul Ryan's agenda that serves his rich donors. After holding more than 50 fundraisers in a month (and not a single townhall), his worldview and priorities are skewed toward the donor class, not regular people. Then they discuss government oversight, with the ethics commission in Wisconsin going easy on the politicians its supposed to oversee. And finally some good news out of Howard County, Maryland, where citizen-funded elections were passed with a veto-proof majority.

Laura invited Meghan Faulkner, Every Voice's digital manager, on to talk about some of the attacks on state public financing systems we've been fighting back against. From Maine to Connecticut to Minnesota to Arizona, Meghan explains what's going on and how you can help. And we finish the episode with some great news from Illinois, where they are making it a lot easier to get registered to vote!
