NFL: the 'Nonprofit Football League' The National Football League is a tax-exempt nonprofit — even though it makes $10 billion in revenue every year. Individual teams are taxed, but they're also heavily subsidized by states and cities across the country, enriching their wealthy owners. Nobody knows if Sunday's 48th Super Bowl at MetLife Stadium, the most expensive in history, will compensate New Jersey taxpayers for security, transportation and trash collection. We debate the public cost of America's newest "national pastime."
Trump's 'America First' goes missing abroad In the Middle East, President Trump is changing some policies of the Obama Administration—and reversing his own campaign attacks on Islam as a religion that "hates us." We hear about his visit to Saudi Arabia and what's at stake for the rest of his foreign excursion.
Trump's new look at civil rights and global warming President Trump is reportedly ready to pull the US out of the Paris Agreement on Climate Change. We look at the possible consequences. On the second half of the program, we hear about cuts in Obama-Era civil rights programs called for by the Trump Administration's first budget plan.
Will the Senate write a healthcare bill in secret? While Democrats and Republicans argue White House relations with Russia, another question is being decided behind closed doors: who gets help buying health insurance and who doesn't? We hear how the pros and cons are being shrouded in secrecy.
