Walls Don’t Work.  Social Security Does. Plus Bill Press with Congressman Earl Blumenauer.

 

Everything Donald Trump gets wrong about the Great Wall of China, plus everything Progressive Democrats get right about Social Security expansion.  And Bill Press talks with Representative Earl Blumenauer about why he refused to show up for the State of the Union.
