Good morning from Washington, where liberals aren't likely to embrace The Heritage Foundation's new plan to balance the budget and cut taxes. Rachel del Guidice reports. Is George Washington too frightening for schoolchildren? How did women win the right to vote 100 years ago? Jarrett Stepman takes on both questions. Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers visits the podcast.
