FROM THIS EPISODE

The GOP establishment is begging Paul Ryan to take over the House speaker position from the departing John Boehner. But Ryan says he won’t run for Speaker unless the House Freedom Caucus, a breakaway faction of about 40 ultra right-wing conservative Republicans, supports him.

 

Then, Bernie Sanders says the economic deck is stacked in favor of the wealthy. And Donald Trump appeals to Americans who don’t trust politicians; he says they dance to the tune of whoever gives them money. Former Labor Secretary Robert Reich says they’re both right.

 

And 130 law enforcement officials have joined forces to reduce mass incarceration in America. They’re in Washington today to come up with a plan. The group includes Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck and New York City Police Commissioner Bill Bratton.

 

Next, families divided by the Korean War nearly 70 years ago will meet at North Korea’s Diamond Mountain Resort.

 

Finally, John Mellencamp is the latest in a long list of high-profile celebrities who have turned to the fine arts to express themselves including Tony Bennett, Sylvester Stallone and Miley Cyrus.

Ryan Seeks Support of Freedom Caucus 9 MIN, 29 SEC

The GOP establishment is begging Paul Ryan to take over the House speaker position from the departing John Boehner. But Ryan says he won’t run for Speaker unless a breakaway conservative faction of the House GOP supports him. He’s talking about the Freedom Caucus: a group of about 40 ultra right-wing Republicans who have effectively decapitated the power structure in the House.

Robert Reich on Trump and Sanders 12 MIN

Bernie Sanders says the economic deck is stacked in favor of the wealthy. And Donald Trump appeals to Americans who don’t trust politicians; he says they dance to the tune of whoever gives them money. Former Labor Secretary Robert Reich says they’re both right: our economy and our government policies concentrate too much wealth and power in the hands of too few.
