Sunday’s Guests (Dec. 2): Governor Dannel Malloy (D-CT) on taxes and social insurance; the brutal toll of state budget crunches; Washington’s marijuana experiment


Sunday on Up w/ Chris Hayes, we’ll examine the president’s proposals to raise revenue as part of a deficit reduction deal, and we’ll discuss what progressives must do to argue effectively for the taxes necessary to fund important social insurance programs, like Medicare and Social Security. We’ll also look at the toll state budget crunches are taking on the economy. And we’ll consider the implications of a fascinating social experiment about to begin in Washington state: the legal, regulated sale of marijuana.
