This week I joined my old NRSC colleague Ron Steslow along with Andy Kroll from ProPublica and Romina Boccia from the Cato Institute to discuss the week in political news.
While lawmakers argued over the federal budget, our national debt passed $33 trillion dollars this week.
On this week’s roundup, host Ron Steslow and guests Liam Donovan (Principal at Bracewell LLP), Andy Kroll (Investigative Reporter at ProPublica), and Romina Boccia (Director of Budget and Entitlement Policy at the Cato Institute) discuss why it’s significant and break down the fighting within the Republican party as they argue over a budget.
Then they break down how the auto worker strike has Joe Biden caught between two key democratic constituencies
They also discuss the migrant crisis in New York City and how it’s growing rifts in the Democratic party
Finally, they look at Biden’s defiance in the wake of a Federal Appeals Court ruling that said his Administration likely violated the First Amendment and his campaign’s alarming move to combat what it’s calling “political misinformation.”
