OA583: Republicans Creating Handmaid’s Tale Hellscape

The devastating consequences of Texas HB 8 and the Supreme Court’s cowardly shadow docket ruling on it are reverberating not just through Texas, but around the country. Not to be outdone, Republicans in Idaho produced a copycat bill. Andrew gives the breakdown and we discuss some truly shocking NPR coverage of how Republicans are ruining lives. But it’s not all bad news! In the B segment, Andrew takes us through the Equality Florida Lawsuit, a well-argued lawsuit attempting to fight back against the Don’t Say Gay Bill. Also, we’re not bothering to cover Trump’s idiotic flop of a lawsuit against Hillary.
