Coming up on today’s show, we have Kade Crockford from the ACLU of Massachusetts back on the show discuss what we know about Trapwire and the problems with for-profit companies partnering with the government to spy on Americans.

We also have Greg Kaufmann from the Nation Magazine’s This Week In Poverty back on the show to discuss how Pennsylvania knocked 91,000 children off of Medicaid and to give us an update on the Houston janitors strike.

We’ll also discuss how Congressman Todd Akin’s “legitimate rape” controversy is part of a disturbing trend of mainstreaming extreme ideas in the GOP’s War On Women.
