Nikhil Goyal, former Bernie Sanders advisor and author of “Live To See The Day: Coming of Age In American Poverty,” joins us to break down Kevin McCarthy’s removal as Speaker of the House. To us, it’s obviously very funny but to the right wing pundit class, it’s somehow shameful the Democrats didn’t vote to protect McCarthy. We get into how the GOP has let the genie out of the bottle with this move and how we’ll likely see similar occurrences later.
From there, Nikhil tells us about his book which follows three kids in Philly living in poverty to illustrate how our system allows people, including many children, to fall through the cracks and what an appropriate policy response should be to poverty in America.
