PA's Worst: Republican Pushes Pro-Discrimination Proposal in PA House [VIDEO]

This is a video from my show Counterpoint PA, the only grassroots progressive newscast exclusively about Pennsylvania politics.

In this edition of Counterpoint PA's homage to Keith Olbermann, the Worst Pennsylvanians of the Week, the winner is a conservative Republican state representative who is seeking cosponsors to introduce a bill that would literally legalize discrimination. While he wants to exempt businesses from a wide range of anti-discrimination laws, he also claims he's not endorsing discrimination. I'm not making this one up. I put the reality of this proposal in historical perspective and emphasize that it is, in fact, an endorsement of discrimination.

(KO tribute)PAs Worser:Conservatives Mask Contradictory Obamacare Attacks as Policy Analysis[VIDEO]

This is a video from my show Counterpoint PA, the only grassroots progressive newscast exclusively about Pennsylvania politics.

In this edition of Counterpoint PA's homage to Keith Olbermann, the Worst Pennsylvanians of the Week, the runner-up is a so-called "policy analyst" for a conservative advocacy group who, after calling Medicaid expansion under Obamacare "immoral" because it was supposedly poor insurance, also criticized Obamacare for canceling private insurance plans for not meeting minimum coverage standards. I explain how this self-contradiction shows that the group's opposition to Medicaid expansion in PA is purely ideological and should not be masked as "policy analysis."
