In hour two of Here & Now's Nov. 9, 2017 full broadcast, Republican Rep. Ralph Abraham of Louisiana joins us to discuss why he supports the tax cut plan that the House is expected to vote on next week. Also, Tuesday's election was a big night for Democrats, with major victories in Virginia and New Jersey. But as an off-year election, what it says about the state of national politics may be difficult to read. And author Matt Taibbi discusses his new book about the police chokehold death of Eric Garner, and questions about his writing years ago that was misogynistic.
