How will the Democratic candidates pay for their plans?

USCMOWe look at Bernie Sanders’ and Hillary Clinton’s proposals–how much do they plan on spending and how much taxing if elected? Then in the second half, an omnibus bill just passed in Congress. It includes provisions about visa waivers for people who have traveled to the Middle East which some organizations are labeling discriminatory. Last, we’ll talk about the recent wave of Islamophobia in America and what some Muslim organizations are doing about it.

 

Guests: 

Dean Baker, Co-director of the Center for Economic and Policy Research

Jamal Abdi, Executive Director at the National Iranian American Council Action

Oussama Jammal, Secretary General of the U.S. Council of Muslims Organizations
