VIDEO: Opioid Billionaires’ Get-Out-Of-Jail-Free Card

Each week, we partner with Breaking Points to review some of The Daily Poster’s most impactful reporting in a video discussion with Krystal Ball and Saagar Enjeti. In this week’s discussion, we reviewed our big scoop on Congress suddenly stalling legislation designed to prevent courts from shielding the billionaire Sackler family from legal consequences for its role in the opioid crisis that has killed hundreds of thousands of Americans. As you’ll hear, the bill stalled right after one of the most powerful corporate lobbying groups got involved in lobbying on it.
