President Biden announced a new $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure package that will be primarily funded through heightened IRS efforts to reduce tax evasion by corporations and the wealthy. Human infrastructure spending, which covers things like childcare, education, and clean energy, is missing from the deal and would need to be part of a second bill passed through reconciliation without Republican support.Pride events this weekend in cities like New York, Denver, and Seattle have banned out LGBTQ police officers from participating in marches if they're in uniform. We spoke with Chris Roney, an organizer of the Queer Liberation Movement, about the history of police resistance in the queer community and what's motivating people to ban cops at pride.Plus, we're joined for headlines by special guest Margaret Cho: New York suspends Giuliani’s law license, EU leaders condemn anti-queer Hungarian bill, and chaos at a Redneck Rave.Show Notes:Search and Rescue Underway After Partial Collapse of Surfside Condo Building – https://www.nbcmiami.com/Chris Roney: "In Honor of Pride, Let’s Put Our Privilege to Work For Black Lives Matter" – https://yhoo.it/3zWcVt3Queer Liberation March – https://reclaimpridenyc.org/For a transcript of this episode, please visit crooked.com/whataday.
