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
