This week, the Democrats lost their ability to block Republican filibusters in the Senate when Scott Brown defeated Martha Coakley in the special election for the Massachusetts Senate seat that Ted Kennedy had held for more than four decades. On this week’s Radio Times weekly political roundup, the Philadelphia Inquirer’s DICK POLMAN and Boston Globe columnist JOAN VENNOCHI will join us to discuss the implications for both political parties of the special election in Massachusetts, as well as the prospects for health care reform, jobs and unemployment, banks and exec compensation, forecasting the November races, and more. And then we’ll talk to NPR reporter PETER OVERBY about the Supreme Court’s decision lifting restrictions on corporate funding for political campaigns.
