Part 1: We have a conversation with Scott Braddock, editor of the Quorum report, about Texas politics. The governor, Abbott, is preparing his run for president, with a new emphasis on building a wall in Texas, with contributions, though he has pledged hundreds of millions of dollars of Texas taxpayer money. The electrical grid in Texas is collapsing. What is the legality of building a contributors' list for his campaign?
Part 2: We talk with Harold Meyerson and Bill Curry about the filibuster problem, as emphasized by Joe Manchin's actions by insisting on 'bipartisanship'. What strategy should the Democrats pursue to pass HR1, in light of their small majority in Congress?
