CAP Action’s Brendan Duke on Why We Need To Fund the Government
Part of a Series

Brendan Duke, senior director of Economic Policy at the Center for American Progress Action Fund, joins the show to discuss government funding, MAGA Republican chaos, and the risks of relying on short-term continuing resolutions. Daniella and Colin also talk about labor victories and Donald Trump’s extreme rhetoric and policies.

The positions of American Progress, and our policy experts, are independent, and the findings and conclusions presented are those of American Progress alone.
