A new year—a new government. Congressional Republicans are already making moves to take away health insurance from as many as 30 million Americans (among other things) through a technical process called “reconciliation.” Rebecca and Jeremy get help from CAP government affairs expert and former hill staffer Ryan Collins to unpack what this means and how it works. Next, Ezra Levin, one of our favorite anti-poverty policy wonks and one of the former congressional staffers behind Indivisible: A Practical Guide for Resisting the Trump Era, joins to discuss the movement rapidly taking the nation by storm. Then, Alan Pyke, Deputy Economic Policy Editor for ThinkProgress, brings us up to speed on conservative state politicians’ longstanding quest to load shopping cart rules onto food stamp recipients. But first, Jeremy Slevin returns to highlight this week’s biggest stories for another installment of “In Case You Missed It.”
