Protesters storm the J.P. Morgan Chase shareholders meeting but Jamie Dimon, who lost $2 billion bucks, will still stay on as CEO. And Mitt Romney calls for the repeal of Dodd-Frank, the only thing standing between your bank account and another economic meltdown.
Former Sen. Byron Dorgan (D-ND) saw it all coming, and he’ll join Ed (who reports tonight from Washington, D.C.) for reaction and analysis.
Meanwhile, Romney warns of a "prairie fire of debt" during a campaign stop in Iowa. But Ed will remind him who started that prairie fire with msnbc Political Analyst Richard Wolffe. And check out this excellent chart:
The mayor of cable news, Bill O’Reilly, is trying to fool "the folks" again, saying there’s no such thing as income inequality. Howard Dean, former Democratic National Committee Chairman, former presidential candidate and the founder of Democracy for America, and some Big Eddie charts will set him straight.
An Oklahoma Republican is taking major heat for saying it should be legal to fire someone for being gay. Tonight, James Lankford responds to his critics. Karen Finney, msnbc Political Analyst and former DNC Communications Director, joins Ed for that.
Last night, Ed told us the Democratic National Committee was stiffing Wisconsin Democrats in their campaign to recall Gov. Scott Walker. Callers to Ed’s radio show are furious with the national party and now the DNC is responding.
And in the Big Finish, Facebook's co-founder is renouncing his American citizenship to dodge hundreds of millions of dollars in taxes and righties are calling him a hero! Ilyse Hogue, columnist for The Nation magazine, will weigh in on that.
