DC UPDATE, w/ REP. JARED HUFFMAN: Inside the Crazy World of Omnibus Budget Bills, and the Possibility of Another Government Shutdown
“We threw a whole bunch more money than even the Pentagon was asking for into the defense budget, and we slashed taxes, especially for the rich. So it’s like a fiscal disconnect. It’s almost indefensible.”

It’s time again for D.C. UPDATE, when Rep. Jared Huffman takes to the Humboldt airwaves to chat with KGLE-FM’s Larry Trask about matters Humboldtish and Washingtonian!
