Violation Tracker is one of the projects conducted by Good Jobs First research director Philip Mattera who will be joining Steve and Lew and tell us what their latest report revealed. Spoiler alert: it documented that in the past year the current administration has levied a fraction of the fines to Fortune 100 companies that the previous administration collected. I wonder if those corporations saw the light, stopped violating the law and decided to become good citizens? Not.
Later, Patti Brigham co-chair of the Florida Coalition to Prevent Gun Violence and the 1st Vice-president of the Florida League of Women Voters will be talk about the recent tragic school shooting in Parkland and how just maybe things might be different this time. The old “thoughts and prayers” response to mass shootings is getting old and certainly is not being accepted by the surviving students who are calling for real reform in firearm regulation and leveling the BS charge to those legislators (owned by the NRA) who say nothing can be done.
