Reality Check, December 15, 2017
Category : Reality Check
Gary, Lyn and Dee discuss politics and current events. We would like to thank you for listening throughout the year, and let you know we’re taking next week off. Our topics for this week include Doug Jones’ Senate victory in Alabama. Despite all the voter suppression and intimidation, he won. He won by a margin large enough to avoid an automatic voter recount. So, why isn’t Roy Moore conceding? Why is the Senate going ahead with the tax bill vote? In 2010, when Brown won the Senate seat from Massachusetts, the ACA vote was suspended until he could be seated. In wake of the FCC’s decision to repeal net neutrality, we discuss that topic at length. And, of course, we discuss the lack of public broadband. What is taking El Paso County so long to act? We voted in November of 2016 to start moving on this, and nothing! Fort Collins voted in November 2017 and they are already beginning to issue bonds!
