Diane talks with Washington Post enterprise reporter John Woodrow Cox about his new book "Children Under Fire: An American Crisis."
President Biden took the push for his Covid-19 relief package on the road this week. He traveled to the Midwest, where he argued his stimulus bill is just what the country needs right now to help hurting businesses – and families.
But this is not a conventional economic package. It includes money for vaccines and testing, for schools, even a proposal to raise the minimum wage. Republicans have railed against the 1.9 trillion dollar plan, and even some economists wonder if the price is too high.
Jim Tankersley is an economics reporter at The New York Times and author of the recent book, “The Riches of This Land: The Untold, True Story of America’s Middle Class.”
He joined Diane to explain what’s in the bill, and how it might ease the pain of working Americans.
