Karoli of Crooks and Liars and Cynematic of K12NN discuss the capture of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects, the effects of the sequester and how a big screwup on an Excel spreadsheet ripped apart the intellectual justification for austerity policies that urge cuts during a recession. Can we just stop with the unproven austerity now?

Also, who is Pete Petersen and why do a handful of  billionaires get to decide everything from economic policy to education reform?

Two bright notes: Elizabeth Colbert-Busch, the Democratic candidate for Congress in SC, is in the lead over Republican Mark "Hiking the Appalachian Trail" Sanford, the disgraced former governor of the state. Heh. And the guy that was fingered as a suspect in the ricin-tainted letters to Congress incident is a loopy foot reflexologist, and not a creepy poisoner. What? Just listen.

Weekly political discussion from the progressive POV, hosted by the MOMocrats. Produced by Engender Media Group.
