The White House Budget

Posted by: victorb 3/20/2017 10:24 PM

The White House Budget

Monday, March 20, 2017

Late last week the White House released what some are calling a "skinny budget;" a wish list of sorts from the Trump administration as Congress gears up for the budgeting process. Today we'll discuss the possible impacts of the President's budget that included proposed cuts for the EPA (affecting the Chesapeake Bay clean-up program) and a $54 billion defense boost paid for by cutting most non-defense accounts, including foreign aid and arts and humanities programs like the National Endowment for the Arts and funds for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. We'll also talk with WHRO President, Bert Schmidt, about how changes to CPB funding might impact our stations.

After the Vote: 50 Days

Wednesday, March 15, 2017

By his 100th day in office, Franklin D. Roosevelt had already begun to drastically reshape government’s role in the lives of Americans. And while a modern president's first hundred days typically aren't nearly as productive as FDR's, those first hundred days still serve as a popular gauge of a president's effectiveness -- and intentions. Today we'll check in with President Trump's progress at the halfway mark of the first 100 days of his administration.

Glenn Thrush - is the chief White House political correspondent for the New York Times

Joseph Antos - is the Wilson H. Taylor Scholar in Health Care and Retirement Policy at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), where his research focuses on the economics of health policy

Stephen Farnsworth - is a professor and director of the Center for Leadership and Media Studies at the University of Mary Washington

Vivian Paige - is an accounting lecturer at Old Dominion University

Monday, March 13, 2017

In the wake of international disasters, many feel the call to have an impact -- to make a difference -- to volunteer. The unexpected and immediate nature of earthquakes, floods, famine and war often compel volunteers and humanitarian aid workers to set out where needed, with little consideration for their own needs abroad.

Later, a behind-the-scenes look at the new WHRV podcast, Educationally Speaking.

Dr. Judith Lasker - is the N.E.H. Distinguished Professor of Sociology at Lehigh University and the author of Hoping to Help: The Promises and Pitfalls of Global Health Volunteering
