Mark Vitrone is running for the chair of the Burke Democratic Party. He joins us to talk about the future of the Democratic party, citizen participation in our political system, the Russian connection to Donald Trump’s electoral win, the purpose and importance of taxes, and the tedious relationship between capitalism and healthcare. We also take a look back on the failure and success of Tim Barnsback’s campaign for NC house of which Mark was the campaign manager. During the intro we are joined by friend of the pod Ed Struble to talk about the thumbs-up emoji and the epic failure of the Republican effort to repeal and replace Obamacare.
