Politically Speaking: An Accidental Medicine Tax And Missouri's 8th Congressional Race

May 31, 2013

Every week, St. Louis Public Radio’s Chris McDaniel joins the St. Louis Beacon’s Jo Mannies and Jason Rosenbaum to talk about the week’s politics.

On this week's episode: we recap the new finding in the income tax cut bill, which inadvertently would cause a sales tax increase. Then we discuss the chances of an upset in the 8th Congressional race. We finally close it out with a discussion about Democrat Jill Schupp announcing her run for Senator John Lamping's seat.

Note: After recording, news broke that the Nixon administration was involved in the crafting of the language of the accidental tax increase. You can read about it here.
