What Happens Now (With Congress)?


Russian revolutionary Vladimir Lenin famously said, “There are decades where nothing happens, and there are weeks where decades happen.” They often qualify as fulfilling the ancient Chinese curse, “May you live in interesting times.”

We’re about to learn whether one or both fits the present. In the meantime, much drama awaits as the 118th Congress, probably the most narrowly divided Congress in American history, begins on January 3rd.

Join Greg and Chad Benson as they cheer a very good March jobs report, showing more 900,000 new jobs added last month. They also wade through the sordid allegations emerging against Florida GOP Rep. Matt Gaetz and his counter-allegations that he the victim of an extortion attempt. And they react very strongly to Dr. Leanna Wen saying states should not open up yet because opening up should be conditional upon people getting vaccinated. She says, “Otherwise, people are going to go out and enjoy these freedoms anyway.”
