Sam and Emma host Elizabeth Pancotti, policy director at Employ America, to discuss the details of the $1.9T American Rescue Plan and what was left out of the bill too. Pancotti makes sense of the bill and the money going directly to working Americans, and critiques some of the not-so-fiscally-conservative spending measures in the bill, too.
And in the Fun Half: Brandon Sutton joins to discuss what Seussgate reveals about generational biases, Meghan McCain says "the American experiment is the way to go," the Biden administration has not fixed issues at the border, obscuring the IP rights of the covid vaccines, plus your calls and IMs!
