Some prominent Democrats in the House and Senate have banded together to launch a sort of mini-New Deal — or “A Better Deal,” as they’re calling it — to improve the lives of workers. On today’s show, we’ll chat with the Roosevelt Institute’s president and CEO, Felicia Wong, about the plan. Afterwards, we’ll look at the history of generic drugs, which weren’t always so accessible for Americans.

We’re here to help you navigate this changed world and economy.
