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.
Greg Palast: We have to fight each one of these things case by case, state by state. Rick: It's like Whack-a-Mole. The right-wing think tanks keep coming up with one bad idea after another.
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.
Bob Ney: China has been advancing, doing everything it can internally & externally. We've become shabby with infrastructure & it's time to improve it.

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.

Sara Nelson: Put blinders on with Mitch McConnell & focus on his caucus, also on Congress. We have to force them.
Sarah Burris: I would make a state-by-state list of what specifically would be built/improved in the infrastructure plan. People connect better when they know what specific projects would be involved.
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.

Jeff Hauser: McConnell literally exists to make rich people happy. Dems would do well to make him the face of Repub party & steamroll him.
