This is a video from my new show, Counterpoint PA, the only grassroots progressive newscast exclusively about Pennsylvania politics.
In this video, I discuss PA Republicans' strict ban on abortion coverage in the state health insurance exchange being created as part of ObamaCare that has now been signed into law and a group of Republican state senators who momentarily became fighters for Medicaid expansion and could have made it happen but then reversed their positions to allow its obstruction to continue.

As well as The Breakdown, which this week will feature an exclusive interview with Sue Lyons, author of the resolution calling for a moratorium on fracking recently formally adopted as the official position of the Pennsylvania Democratic Party about fracking and her resolution.
All that plus Counterpoint PA's special homage to Keith Olbermann, the Worst Pennsylvanians of the Week!
