Tide Turning Tuesday

Big wins for Dems this week, how Kansas should be the canary in the coal mine for the Republican tax plan, and a conversation with the author of a new book on private prisons. Subscribe to Off-Kilter on iTunes.

Democrats have plenty of reasons to celebrate this week. Will Ragland of the Center for American Progress Action Fund’s War Room joins Jeremy Slevin to break down the news out of Virginia. Next, Jeremy talks with State Senator Dinah Sykes from Kansas, a Republican who challenged her own party after a conservative tax plan that is eerily similar to the one put forward by Trump and the GOP wreaked havoc on the state’s budget. And lastly, we bring you a conversation that Rebecca had with Lauren-Brooke “L.B.” Eisen, senior counsel at the Brennan Center and author of Inside Private Prisons: An American Dilemma in the Age of Mass Incarceration.

This week’s guests:

  • Will Ragland, Managing Director, CAP Action War Room
  • Kansas State Senator Dinah Sykes
  • Lauren-Brooke Eisen, Senior Counsel at the Brennan Center and author of Inside Private Prisons
