The Majority Report with Sam Seder

Ari Berman (@AriBerman) joins us to discuss his latest piece in Rolling Stone about how a combination of gerrymandering, voter-ID laws, and dark money, Republicans have tipped the political scales in their favor. Court decisions on racial and partisan gerrymandering. Why Justice Kennedy is an important bellwether. The response to "If voting mattered wouldn't they make it illegal?" is: they are. Why photo ID laws are designed and implemented in ways to disenfranchise voters. Wisconsin as anti-democratic testing ground.

On the fun half - Why do people flock to centrists? Do consumers have a role in fixing american healthcare? Tomi Lahren freaks out about Joe Kennedy, Alex Jones thinks They may nuke DC, a DACA recipient calls in and talks about being an American, the irritation of Pod Save America, and Michael Wolff defends his Nikki Haley rumor mongering.
