    President Biden's First 100 Days

    President Biden's First 100 Days

    President Biden gave his first joint address to Congress this week, marking a successful first 100 days in office - and viewers polled afterwards indicated that it was a stunning success. MOMocrats Karoli, Aliza Worthington, and Donna Schwartz Mills reflect on the new Administration's successes in positioning the country away from the mess made by "the former guy." They will also talk about continuing woes of Rudy Giuliani and Matt Gaetz.

    A Measure of Accountability

    A Measure of Accountability

    The jury in the Derek Chauvin murder case found the former Minneapolis policeman guilty on all counts - but as relieved as most of the nation was, it was not a moment of joy. 


    "I would not call today's verdict justice, however, because justice implies true restoration," Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison said. "But it is accountability, which is the first step towards justice, and now the cause of justice is in your hands."


    Chauvin would likely never have gone to trial without the video showing him callously asphyxiating George Floyd to death. And it remains dangerous to go about doing everyday things in this country if you are a Black American. As the jury announced their verdict, 16-year-old Ma'Kiyah Bryant was shot to death by a cop in Columbus, Ohio. And two days later, the funeral was held for 20-year-old Daunte Wright, who lost his life after being pulled over for expired license tags --  just a few miles from the site where Floyd died. 


    MOMocrats Karoli, Aliza Worthington, and Donna Schwartz Mills discuss the trial and its aftermath, as well as some reasons for optimism in the United States under President Joe Biden: continued success in fighting COVID-19, a renewed commitment to combating climate change, and a sunny economic forecast fueled by Biden's people-first policies.

    It's Infrastructure Week. For Real, This Time.

    It's Infrastructure Week. For Real, This Time.

    President Biden unveiled his new plan to shore up the country's deteriorating infrastructure - and we finally understand what he meant by "Build Back Better." The $2 Trillion bill allocates funds for fixing roads and bridges, expanding our rail network, replacing toxic water infrastructure, upgrading school structures, closing the broadband gap in underserved parts of the country, and beginning the much-needed shift to clean energy. And he proposes to pay for it by partially erasing the Trump tax cuts on wealthy people and corporations. 

    Like the American Rescue Plan COVID relief bill, this proposal is popular with voters - including Republican ones.

    MOMocrats Karoli, Aliza Worthington, and Donna Schwartz Mills discuss the new bill, as well as the Derek Chauvin murder trial, and this week's gift that keeps on giving: the sex with underage minors scandal that some have dubbed "Pizza Gaetz."

    A Mixed Bag of Both Good News and Bad

    A Mixed Bag of Both Good News and Bad

    This week has been one of good news and bad news. The Biden Administration has overseen the administration of 100 million COVID vaccines - 40 days sooner than the President originally promised. However, the new, more dangerous variants of the virus appear to have stemmed the progress the nation has made in stemming the pandemic, and there are new hot spots around the country.


    The House has passed Biden's sweeping immigration plan, which includes a path to citizenship for DREAMERS and migrant farm workers. In the meantime, the anti-immigration right has seized upon a surge of unaccompanied minors and some border crossings and deemed it a "crisis at the border." It's not - but those are the official talking points this week.


    And a horrific mass murder in Georgia has highlighted this country's ongoing problem with hatred of our fellow Americans who are of Asian descent, which was exacerbated by Trumpian description of COVID as the "China virus," etc. 


    MOMocrats Karoli, Aliza Worthington, and Donna Schwartz Mills discuss these issues and more this week. Part of the DemCast family of podcasts

    President Biden's American Rescue Plan is a Big Effing Deal

    President Biden's American Rescue Plan is a Big Effing Deal

    When Joe Biden was Vice President, he proclaimed the Affordable Care Act a "big effing deal."

    Now that he's President, Biden has a BFD of his own - and is on track to be the most transformative Democratic president since FDR. 

    MOMocrats Karoli, Aliza Worthington, and Donna Schwartz Mills look back on an exceptional week 50 days into the Biden presidency, when the American Rescue Plan was enacted into law, the timeline for getting Americans vaccinated was shortened by a couple of months -- and Merrick Garland was finally sworn in as Attorney General.

Hillar-ity

Not so much pro Hillary as anti-Trump and anti-Bernie. Light on analysis but frequently drunken-sounding chatter is a lot of fun.
