Sam and Emma discuss the CDC's new guidelines for vaccinated Americans and how the right-wing media is working to undermine government vaccination efforts. Sam then reviews the top lines in the $1.9 Covid relief bill like the child tax credit, reparations for black farmers, and shoring up union pensions. Next, the filibuster showdown will be fought on the Voting Rights laws. Sam and Emma wrap the free half critiquing the Biden administration's migrant response, and a coda to the Lincoln Project.
And in the Fun Half: the next phase of Fight for $15, the need for an actionable left foreign policy, Hannity freaks out about HR 1, Tucker toes the line on ecofascism, Brian Kilmeade says teachers have it easy, plus your calls and IMs!
