5/13 Isabel Macdonald: GOP’s Drug-Testing Dragnet

May 13, 2013

Freelance journalist Isabel Macdonald  joins us to discuss her latest piece for The Nation, GOP’s Drug-Testing Dragnet. We talk about how the drug testing industry is a self-licking ice cream cone where Republicans and industry profiteers are targeting high school students, welfare applicants and the unemployed.

On the better half, we discuss the IRS “scandal,” a Libertarian debates us on Benghazi, Random Rush and your calls and IMs!

And keep the conversation going on our morning thread
