Don’t lie to me!

I am always trying to listen to the side’s political views and shows like this can help further engagement But when you completely mischaracterise guests like the Pelosi-bot who was described as “non partisan” and “independent” on Social Security issues, you made me angry. Agree or not, she was not as you described. She dismissed and slandered everyone who disagrees with her. Denigrated solutions like 401ks and private programs, etc. She subscribed to conspiracy theories about billionaires. She dodged simple questions, and then blathered on about fairness. Her one bit of clarity was describing SS as an insurance program, vice an individual retirement fund. She was as dependent on the dem platform and as partisan as possible. please don’t piss on my leg and tell me it’s raining.

Great news summary

This podcast covers all the topics you'd expect, and a lot of stories you wouldn't. Tanzina Vega has been a great host, navigating all the week's news. The Takeaway team are all very sharp too. The Friday conversations with Amy Walter have been really interesting as well, more in-depth on political topics behind the scenes. All in all this show is a great way to keep up with the news and conversations behind the headlines, and hearing from listeners is always great too.
