We got a few questions about how Trump’s infrastructure plan could get through a Republican-controlled Congress:

Mike Rodgers asked, “since history indicates republicans don’t want to fund anything, what’s that mean for trumps ideas?”

Justin Taylor asked, “how long will it take to get a $1 tril #infrastructure bill written, passed, signed, and get projects started, & $ flowing?”

Marketplace’s Washington D.C Bureau Chief Andrea Seabrook joins the show to discuss those questions and the Democratic Party’s playbook the next four years.
