FROM Carol Kocivar
Molly Munger's Rival Education Initiative Dan Schnur's USC Dornsife/LA Times Poll found that Molly Munger's tax measure is losing by a wide margin, 32 percent "yes" to 64 percent "no." But that's not the only poll showing bad news for " Our Children, Our Future ." The Field Poll and the Public Policy Institute of California also show a lack of support. Ms. Munger declined our invitation to appear tonight. Carol Kocivar is President of the California State Parent-Teacher Association , the PTA.
The longest US war: Will Trump send more troops to Afghanistan? The Trump White House is divided over the Pentagon's request for more troops in Afghanistan—where the US has been fighting for the past 16 years. Is there a formula -- either for "victory" or a political settlement? Is there an end in sight for America's longest war?
Is the threat from Russia missing from the Russia meddling probe? There's much being made about the Trump administration's possible ties with Russia. But the bottom line is Russia's effort to influence American democracy. Do the President and his aides care enough to take action before voters go back to the polls?
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.
What happens when America retreats from the world? Is President Trump taking his "America First" agenda to extremes, withdrawing the country from the international stage on trade and climate change, distancing America from its traditional allies across the Atlantic and even threatening to physically isolate the country through the building of a wall along its southern border? León Krauze guest hosts.
