He also cut a deal on Harvey aid and the debt ceiling with his new besties, Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi. Evil Lobbyist (actually, great guy) Liam Donovan joins the show to talk to Neal and Jay about all of that and, of course, the important question of who is better: The Beatles and The Rolling Stones.
