STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

This week, another big name in tech was toppled by accusations of sexual harassment — venture capitalist Steve Jurvetson, an investor in Tesla and SpaceX who left his prominent Silicon Valley company.

The big-money world of Silicon Valley remains dominated by men and remains a hard place for women to speak out if they want to join the ranks of its richest. And some women think the best way to fight harassment is to tread carefully and get to the top.

New York Congressman John Faso, a Republican of Kinderhook, will not vote for the House republican tax plan in its current form, according to a press release. Faso says the plan does not do enough to ease tax burdens.

"I have consistently stated that my goals for tax reform are to increase economic growth, increase worker paychecks, incentivize small business investment and ensure New York families are better off.  Unfortunately, I do not believe the current tax bill being considered by the House meets all of these goals," Faso said.  "As such, I will vote no when the bill is considered in the House of Representatives tomorrow.

Dr. Alan Chartock discusses the Republican tax plan to come to a vote this week, parents of Newtown shooting victims suing Remington gun manufacturers, and New Yorkers signing a petition to keep the name Tappan Zee on the Mario M. Cuomo bridge.
