Elie Mystal is back on The Brief to talk about the Texas anti-abortion law, and how we can fight it

September promises to be exhaustingly jam packed. In Congress, we’ve got, well, all of this: 

SEPTEMBER ON CAPITOL HILL • Gov’t funding expires 9/30 • Debt limit fight looms • Flood insurance/surface transp lapse • House 9/27 infrastructure deadline • Dems write $3.5T bill • Abortion rights vote • Ida/UI/eviction aid? • Jan. 6 committeehttps://t.co/8q0e3hcYQM

Democrats have a jam-packed to-do list, but conservative Democrats Joe Manchin of West Virginia, and Kirsten Synema of Arizona are restless and cranky. What can Democrats actually accomplish in a Senate where their margin of error is zero? Daily Kos senior writer Joan McCarter will join us for the first half of the show to talk about all of this. 

Meanwhile, Texas has just passed the nation’s most restrictive anti-abortion law, and the Supreme Court allowed it to be enforced while the law works its way up the court system. For the second half of the show, Elie Mystal will join us. He is the justice correspondent for The Nation. and one of the most interesting and fun guests in the biz. If only this topic was fun. 

You can watch the show live, Tuesdays at 1:30 PM PT/4:30 PM ET, but I realize that’s not always the most convenient. So the podcast is a great alternative. It goes live Wednesday mornings at all the usual places, including Apple Podcasts and Spotify. A full list of places to download the show is available here.
