A Sharp Congressional Divide In Passing Biden’s American Rescue Plan
On this edition of River to River, host Ben Kieffer speaks with political scientists Jonathan Hassid, of Iowa State University, and Megan Goldberg, of Cornell College, about President Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief plan and party division over the bill.
Later in the hour, they turn to the Democrats' push to expand labor rights, debate over eliminating the Senate filibuster and a look at Iowa’s new election law and opposition to it.
