Man, this episode really got my blood pumping. I was totally freaked out by the time I finished my commute. It's important to hear people really crystallizing just what a complete act of brazen class warfare this tax bill is, and just how screwed the country is, but it makes for some very enervating listening.

Yeah Felix's yelling was almost too much to take htis time, but then again we really should be in-the-streets angry about what just happened.

Matt's bit about the president having some kind of reverse leprechaun's curse that lets him eat garbage and scream at the TV and not have any kind of cancer by now was so good.

This was a great, depressing episode.

...particularly the part about the democrats seizing control again in 2018/20 and immediately returning to compromise and baby steps. *sigh*
