Airing LIVE Thursday, February 18th, 8-9pm ET.
Join the national conversation with host Brian Lehrer as the Biden/Harris administration starts its work.
President Biden has said his administration's four priorities will be:
- Economic Recovery
- Racial Equity
- Climate Change
President Biden has big plans for economic recovery, from the 1.9 trillion-dollar COVID relief package to green jobs creation, and polls show most Americans approve, but his plans face skepticism from deficit hawks and workers in the fossil fuel industry.
What do you need from Washington for your own economic recovery from the pandemic's disruptions?
This week, Brian is joined by:
U.S. Rep. John Yarmuth (D KY 3rd, Louisville), chair of the House Budget Committee;
then William Spriggs, Howard University economics professor, chief economist to the AFL-CIO, U.S. Assistant Secretary of Labor for Policy (2009-2012) and Thea Lee, president of the Economic Policy Institute
