Florida Representative and Chair of the Democratic National Committee Debbie Wasserman Schultz found a new way to completely alienate the progressive wing of the democratic party. Wasserman Schultz is currently co-sponsoring a bill that would gut the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau by delaying new payday lending rules by two years – and it would nullify the rules in any state that has its own payday lending law – like her state of Florida. The CFPB was a major accomplishment for progressives – why is the chair of the DNC attacking it? Ryan Girdusky, Adam Green, and Scott Greer all join Thom Hartmann to discuss this.

Thom is a four-time Project Censored-award-winning, New York Times best-selling author. His national daily progressive radio talk show is distributed to radio stations nationwide by Westwood One, Pacifica, and Free Speech TV. More people listen daily to the Thom Hartmann Program than any other progressive talk show in the nation.
