Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal

Rep. Pramila Jayapal joins Bill Radke to talk about her plan for Medicare for All, and why she thinks it's necessary right now.

Can we keep big companies without tax breaks?

Governor Inslee has said he wants to prevent companies from telling local governments that they'll leave or move jobs unless they get what they want -- like tax breaks. We ask Brian McGowan, who leads Greater Seattle Partners, to talk about how that might be accomplished.

Can Gov. Inslee block you on Facebook?

A man in Kennewick, WA is saying he was blocked from the Governor's Facebook page. Should the Governor be able to block people from a page where public business is discussed? We ask Caitlin Carlson, assistant professor of strategic communication at Seattle University.
