It’s going to be a big budget week in Washington. Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) released his spending plan today, and the Democrats are set to unveil their federal budget sometime in the next few days.

Juli Niemann, analyst at Smith Moore and Company, joins Marketplace Morning Report host Jeremy Hobson to discuss whether Washington’s budget stalemate will be broken anytime soon.
