Weekends: What's Left of Build Back Better w/ David Sirota

November 16, 2021

David Sirota joins Weekends to discuss drastic cuts to the Build Back Better Act and why Democrats sabotaged their own bill. He talks about how Democrats’ failure to deliver real gains for working people will likely lead to resounding electoral defeat in the midterm elections. Plus, political scientist Katie Rader speaks about a recent Jacobin/YouGov study, "Commonsense Solidarity," about successful messaging for progressive electoral campaigns.

Weekends with Ana Kasparian and Nando Vila features free-flowing and humorous commentary on current events and political strategy. This is the podcast version of the show from November 12, 2021
