GottaLaff joins Nicole every Tuesday to discuss the news of the week, today including the senate attempt to repeal and replace the ACA, the postponement of the vote, Trump's threat to Syria and more... Please don't forget to check out the Trump Care Tool Kit -- share it and use it! Make those phone calls!!
Today, I'm thrilled to welcome my friend, media trainer and strategist, Joel Silberman to talk about politics, the future of healthcare, cancer and more. The website I gave out to use to call some of the more "moderate" Republicans most likely to vote against the GOP Wealthcare bill is TrumpcareToolkit.org. Please use it every day!
The Senate Republicans released their Obamacare repeal and replace bill today. You can read it here on Mother Jones' site, or on the Senate Budget Committee page. Heather "Digby" Parton joins in to talk about that and other news in our insane world. Find her at her Hullabaloo blog and at Salon.com.
It's officially the first day of summer, the planet is overheating, and the GOP Senate "Trumpcare" bill might see the light of day tomorrow. I read a Jonathan Cohn piece from Huffington Post on the show to prove that we're being gaslighted by the Republicans over how the Affordable Care Act was written: "The Big Lie Republicans Are Using To Defend Their Secret Health Care Bill". Today, I was happy to welcome author and journalist Helaine Olen to the show to talk about what's wrong with our health care system in the US. We discussed her latest piece for The [...]
GottaLaff joins us every Tuesday to talk about the news of the week.

Kelly Carlin was supposed to be on today's show, but had to postpone due to a death in her family. We'll reschedule as soon as possible. In the meantime, check out the webinar she'll be hosting beginning next Wednesday!
We listened to Jeff Sessions' testimony on Tuesday (and Howie Klein is on vacation), so we moved GottaLaff to today this week, talking about the news of the day...
Since Jeff Sessions is testifying before the Senate Intelligence Committee during today's show, we decided to carry the hearing live, leaving her mic open for commentary and snark.
Because the news has been so dour of late, I thought we needed to start the weekend with some laughs, so today I welcomed political comedy satirical songwriter Lauren Mayer and South Florida radio super star Boca Britany Somers to the show. We tackle some tough topics, but go for the laughs whenever possible.
Former FBI Director James Comey was in the hot seat at the Senate Intelligence Committee today, and we have lots of audio. It's Thursday, so Howie Klein joins in to talk about a good progressive candidate driven out of her congressional race by death threats & more from Republicans.
