In the first half hour of the show Dr. Rasmus describes the legislative maneuverings underway in the attempt to pass the $3.5 trillion ‘American Families Plan’ (aka human infrastructure bill) in Congress. Why it’s a negotiation within the Democratic party and not with the Republicans. Why it’s more fundamentally about the corporate wing of the Democratic party opposed to reversing the Trump 2017 $4.5 trillion tax cuts, than it is about spending on ‘human infrastructure’. Why the final bill will approximate $1 to $1.5T and not $3.5T and how the Democrats will ‘sell it’.  Rasmus then spends the second half hour returning to last week’s theme, ‘What’s a Socialist America, Part 2, which addresses the changes to the US political system that might (have to) occur in order to establish a Socialist America.
