Democratic Party Chair on Obamacare and the Virginia election. A Veterans Week reflection on the state of warfare, and a peace activist says U.S. intelligence apparatus is out of control..
Democratic Party Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz has a lot to say about Obamacare and the Tea Party’s extremism, and she advises members of both parties in Congress -- just try to be “normal human beings.” A Veterans Week reflection by law professor Mary Dudziak on how America has come to be in a permanent state of war. And Bill Press interviews Joe Cirincione, president of the Ploughshares Fund, about the NSA and, also, Syria.
Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, chair of the Democratic Party and a congresswoman from Florida says if you don’t like the way your kitchen was remodeled, don’t burn down the house – take the counter out and re-do the cabinet knobs. Her point? The Affordable Care Act needs minor revisions, not arson.
If you just look at all the campaign ribbons and medals handed out by the U.S. military, you can see that this nation has been in pretty much a permanent state of war for a long time. Author Mary Dudziak says Americans are not called upon for any real sacrifice to support wars, such as public engagement about foreign policy.
Bill Press and his guest, Joe Cirincione, president of the Ploughshares Fund.
