We're looking at a potential United States after Roe v Wade. For conservatives, a long-held dream could finally become reality: with the passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the court could soon have a conservative super-majority, and Roe v Wade could be overturned. For progressives, it's a nightmare: the end of abortion rights at the federal level, and a 50-state patchwork of different laws. Our guests discuss what could happen, and what to expect: Sharon Stiller , J.D., partner and director of the employment law practice at Abrams, Fensterman, Fensterman, Eisman, Formato, Ferrara, Wolf & Carone, LLP; and board member for the National Women’s Hall of Fame Pastor Rick LaDue , United Methodist Church of Webster Sarah Clark , longtime legislative staff member for multiple members of the U.S. Senate and candidate for New York State Assembly in the 136th district
The New York Times has obtained Donald Trump's tax information, which journalists have been seeking for many years now. They report that the president paid exactly $750 in total taxes in 2016, the same in 2017, and zero in most other years. That's because the president reported massive business losses, and he wrote off a number of other expensive items -- like haircuts. Critics say the president is bound to be in trouble with the IRS for fudging the books. Supporters say that he simply did what most people would do: reduce your tax bill by whatever means necessary. Journalist David Cay Johnston has written more about the American tax code than just about any other reporter. He joins us to discuss the president's tax burden, and what we know about legal deductions. Our guest: David Cay Johnston , Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and editor-in-chief of DCReport
The recent summer-like weather won’t stick around too long, and with the cold months approaching – and no end to the pandemic in sight – the way we live and socialize will change. In March, when the pandemic began, we had a conversation on this program about how to help people who may feel isolated or lonely. Those issues are still a concern for many people, and especially individuals who struggle with mental health challenges and substance abuse disorders. Research from July shows that more than half of U.S. adults reported that their mental health has been negatively impacted due to worry and stress over the coronavirus, and separate studies link social isolation and loneliness to poor mental health and an increase in substance abuse. This hour, we’re joined by guests from East House who help us understand how to provide different forms of support for people struggling with these issues. Maybe you or someone you know has been feeling disconnected, depressed, or has relapsed. We talk
When is the last time you visited your favorite restaurant? How has it adapted to the challenges of the pandemic? Many restaurants across the country are finding creative ways to keep business going after shut downs and limits on indoor dining, and those conversations are becoming more urgent as we head into the cold months. Will restaurants in regions like ours be able to weather the winter? According to a recent study from the New York Restaurant Association, nearly 64 percent of restaurant owners surveyed across the state say they are likely or somewhat likely to go out of business by the end of this year unless they see financial relief. A consulting firm for the restaurant industry estimates that between 20 and 25 percent of independently-owned restaurants that closed earlier this year will never reopen. So what’s the situation here in Rochester and the Finger Lakes? We talk about the state of the industry with the New York Restaurant Association and local restaurant owners, and
