Bernie Sanders recently spoke with our John Nichols about the importance of doing big things in politics--and now Senate Democrats have agreed on a $3.5 trillion budget proposal that would dramatically expand Medicare, provide for paid family leave, subsidize child care, make community college free, and fund some meaningful climate crisis initiatives. Big things! John Nichols comments.
Also: A comic novel about Ethel and Julius Rosenberg? Who’d have thought that was possible? Now Francine Prose has written one: it’s called “The Vixen,” and it’s terrific.
