Out d'Coup | Sean Kitchen Kicked Out of Wagner's Gubernatorial Event; PA Sen. Casey Shows His Big Pharma Cred; Media Unprepared for Raw Power Play by Trump Administration
It’s Friday, January 13, 2017. This is Kevin Mahoney, editor and founder of Raging Chicken Press and Raging Chicken Media. Each week I talk to our Capitol muckraker-in-chief, Sean Kitchen, about the good, the bad, and the ugly in state and national politics.
On today’s show, we’ll talk about PA Senator Scott Wagner’s official announcement that he is in for the 2018 gubernatorial race. Sean Kitchen was at the event...but he didn’t get to hear what Wagner had to say. Why? Well, he was booted from the event. So, Sean joined SEIU members outside the walls of Wagner’s Trash Emporium who were there to protest Wagner’s anti-worker agenda.
Plus, we’ll look back at this week’s GOP vote-a-rama to start the process of repealing Obamacare. Trump says YES, but Republicans are getting a little nervous about the pushback they are already feeling from constituents. And during the we hours of the vote-a-rama, PA Senator Bob Casey and 12 other Democrats joined the Republican Majority to shoot down a Bernie Sanders and Amy Klobuchar amendment that would have allowed the importation of prescription drugs from Canada. Big Pharma strikes again. And this Sunday, January 13, is a national day of action to save Health Care. Events are happening all over the country - in PA, the major event will be taking place in Philly.
We’ll also talk about the media’s persistent focus on the lack of “expertise,” “understanding,” and “credentials” in the Trump administration - missing the point that the incoming administration is about naked power and we have a media structure that lacks the practice in taking on power. All that and more on today’s show.
