Joe Sanberg: If you don't change the oil in your car, it's not going to work well. Same w/ the economy--if you don't invest in your economy, it won't work well.

Matthew Chapman: I would say the Cannabis Chemistry [Lake Superior State University] program would be interesting & is understudied. More & more states are legalizing cannabis.

Dave Jamieson: It was a blast from the past to see Jay Carney out there. He was Press Sec'y for Barack Obama & now is the spokesperson for Amazon. He's the one having to fight back against critics. It's a bit of political awkwardness.

Erik Loomis: So long as the filibuster is there, I don't think the PRO Act will pass. We also have the Voting Rights Act & other pieces of legislature coming down, putting pressure on either reforming or eliminating the filibuster.

Trevor Higgins: We've got lead pipes that need to be replace, we have a manufacturing base that's stuck in the last century. Infrastructure is so much more than roads & bridges. We need to prepare for decades to come or we'll be in trouble.

Rep. Andy Levin: The Labor laws that cover all private sector workers are run & executed by quasi-judicial agencies that are not political. The Labor Sec'y is more over job training, wage & Labor & other very important segments.

Bob Ney: McConnell probably believes the Dems will do so many "outrageous things to the left" that Repubs will be able to take back the Senate. It would be so good for the US to get rid of the filibuster once & for all.
