May 22, 2019

Good morning from Washington, where Democrats' House majority makes fiscal responsibility a heavier lift. In commentaries, David Ditch and Justin Bogie explain why we've got to stop the ever-mounting debt. One wonders how the spending spree would have been greeted by America's suffragettes, whose victory 100 years ago is cause for a House celebration. Rachel del Guidice reports. Researcher and author Dion Pierre visits the podcast to talk "neo-segregation" in higher education. Plus: Jessica Francavilla on the toll of abortion, Dennis Prager on campus leftism, and Walter Williams on socialism's broken promise.
