We talk with Lee Harris, writing fellow at The American Prospect, about Joe Manchin. He is expected to personally profit from additional money for 'updating' old coal facilities in the infrastructure bill. This is as opposed to investing in new, renewable, more efficient facilities. Many coal plants are heavily in debt, and this is not sustainable.
We talk with John Nichols, political correspondent at The Nation, about his response to the notion that Biden was not elected to be FDR, proposed by Rep. Spanberger. He refutes her contention, and discusses why Biden is needed now, at this juncture in our history.
