In our continuing effort to discuss ways to improve life in Baltimore, once again we’ve found the road to prosperity in the Charm City still goes through Washington, D.C. and major decisions being made – or not made – in Congress. Our guest this week has been heavily involved in many debates recently involving Elijah Cummings and the President of The United States about our community.
In the wake of more gun violence in America, our Maryland Senator Chris Van Hollen joined us for a spirited conversation about guns, America and the fractured state of Congress in a world of Trump. This is the first of a three-part chat that meandered into every aspect of our daily lives and how our local representatives in D.C. are struggling to create the changes that citizens want and deserve.
In this second episode, the conversation turned to health care, our government’s role and cost.
We dove in on a variety of topics over a long hour that we hope you’ll listen to and react.
