OFF-KILTER with Rebecca Vallas

Dec 1, 2017

Deregulation is the word of the month, thanks to the Trump administration. Rebecca talks with Katrina vanden Heuvel, editor and publisher of The Nation magazine about the FCC’s plans to end net neutrality, which she’s calling “the free speech fight of our generation.” Next, with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau in the spotlight following Trump’s installation of budget director Mick Mulvaney as its acting director, investigative reporter Gary Rivlin joins with a run-down of the years-long, dark-money fueled GOP crusade to burn down the agency. But first, as Republican Senators resumed their efforts Friday morning to ram through their partisan tax bill without a single democratic vote, Rebecca and Jeremy spoke with Seth Hanlon to get the latest on the bill – with all eyes on Maine Senator Susan Collins.
