New Podcast Episode: The Debt Limit, Infrastructure Bill, and Reconciliation
It’s The AAF Exchange — your source for clear, data-driven insight into today’s economic and domestic policy issues.
Washington D.C. is in a “hurry up and wait” mode where it’s facing critical deadlines and massive policy changes—but not much is actually happening. AAF’s Director of Fiscal Policy Gordon Gray joins us to talk about Washington’s big policy fights—the debt limit, and the reconciliation and infrastructure bills—as well as his predictions for September’s monthly jobs numbers.
