Josh and Liam reunite in The Lobby Shop for a look at what Liam has been up to for the last few weeks. We cover the cancellation of Congress’s August recess by Senate Majority Leader McConnell, the outlook of the Midterm elections, DC’s Capitals in the Stanley Cup Final, and more.
Josh, Liam, and Paul react to the tumultuous past 24 hours of on-again-off-again steel and aluminum tariff announcements from the Administration. We break down the context and history of the proposed tariffs and the President’s tweeted claims that trade wars are “easy to win.”
From the passage of the 2018 budget deal to the President’s FY19 budget proposal announcement, there has been a lot of talk in Washington about federal money and where it should go. Josh and Liam sit down with two lobbyists who have significant experience in this complicated area of government, Ed Krenik and John Lee, to discuss the political context for these events, how they differ, and what they mean for policy going forward.
