This week, Rep. Pramila Jayapal joins Major to discuss the latest developments in congressional negotiations of both a bipartisan infrastructure bill and a "soft infrastructure" bill that would increase social safety nets for Americans. Jayapal maintains that child care, Medicare expansion, prescription drug price limits, climate change, immigration, and affordable housing will remain in the slimmed-down social spending bill being negotiated between the White House and congressional Democrats. But she concedes some programs may have to be altered. This conversation was recorded on October 12th, 2021.
