Testing Democracy: EU Parliamentary Elections, DC Drama, and Mars 2020
Europeans head to the polls starting tomorrow for the European Parliamentary elections. This is the second-biggest election in the world, and has been a bit of a snoozer in the past. But this year people are watching very closely because of a surge of far-right groups. We’ll explain. Meanwhile in DC, President Trump and Democratic leaders had a short meeting on infrastructure today that didn’t go exactly as planned. We’ll break down why both sides are throwing mud. Also on today’s episode: the Department of Education is breaking down student loan debt by college … and college major, and NASA wants to send your name to the Red Planet.
