    Speaker Pelosi: Our bill puts money in pockets of American people

    THIS EPISODE: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) joins AM JOY to champion the Democrat-led provisions of the coronavirus relief bill being debated in Congress, noting that these provisions give more money to cash-strapped Americans, and address the failure of GOP leaders to create a comprehensive, national plan for dealing with the pandemic. AND: Former Attorney General Eric Holder debunks the unfounded fears of mail-in voting of the president and William Barr, who apparently believe vote-by-mail will increase voting fraud. (It will not, according to research.) Holder tells host Jonathan Capehart, ‘What it does do is increase turnout.’ NEXT: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s Democratic opponent in the Kentucky U.S. Senate race Amy McGrath calls for change and safe mail-by-vote this November, adding, ‘It's the Senate through McConnell that needs to provide the resources for no excuse, absentee mail-in balloting in the fall. He has not done that.’ PLUS: A record number of black women are running for Congress in 2020. Jonathan speaks with five of these major contenders who are all running in majority-white districts, confident in the fact that their potential constituents are hungry for change and effective leadership. All this and more in this Sunday edition of AM JOY on MSNBC.

Host Jonathan Capehart and guests discuss alarming research into what might happen if the 2020 election is disruptive--which modelling by experts has determined is highly likely. All this and much more in the Saturday edition of AM JOY on MSNBC.
