President Joe Biden signed a bill over the weekend that suspends the US government’s $31.4 trillion debt ceiling with a package he says prevents the financial sky from falling but progressive democrats say weight of the plan falls heavily on the shoulders of americas most vulnerable populations and the planet. We are joined by John Nichols, National Affairs Correspondent for the Nation, who has been focused on the debt ceiling conversation – his latest piece is Here’s Why Principled Progressives Opposed a Cruel and Destructive Debt Ceiling Deal.

Then – it’s graduation season, and so we spend the next segment of our show answering your questions about how best to support your kids in this next phase of their lives.
