Eldridge & Co.: Liz Krueger, New York Nation Senator

Liz Krueger talks about remaining “vigilant” about the challenges to state legislators over old issues like Roe v. Wade … she says about women’s reproductive rights, “We’re not going back.” Also she discusses New York State’s “Wild Wild West Anything Goes” election laws; block grants and the big hit they could exact on the state and its Medicaid programs, city shelters and food stamps (regarding the latter, “If we block-grant that, I can’t imagine what would happen to poor families.”) Also she and host Ronnie Eldridge talk about about public financing of political campaigns vs. the Citizens United decision. (Taped: 09/10/12) Ronnie M. Eldridge, articulate, outspoken, and passionate member of the New York City Council from 1989 to 2001, hosts this series which covers the issues and institutions, the people and politics of New York City.
