04/20/2017: Frexit?

This has been a relatively low-key week in Washington, politics-wise. Congress has been on recess and the president has been in and out of town. Left behind have been staffers at agencies and offices that do the work that helps the government work, among them the Congressional Budget Office and its director, Keith Hall. The CBO and it analysis work were thrown in the spotlight during the recent healthcare debate and non-vote. We'll talk with Hall about all of it. Then we'll look at the state of politics in France, where the upcoming presidential election finds voters turning against the EU. Plus: Google, which makes billions from ad sales, is said to be considering an ad-blocking feature for its Chrome web browser.
