The Tent

Jun 3, 2021

This week on “The Tent”, Daniella and Jesse connect with Senator Tammy Duckworth of Illinois for an insightful conversation on how the new Democratic majority in the Senate has worked to pass ambitious legislation to bolster the economy and help pull Americans out of the pandemic. She also discusses where bipartisanship has worked – like with the passage of the COVID-19 Hate Crimes Act – and where working across the aisle still poses a challenge, i.e. with the American Jobs Plan.
