What do the Dems and GOP still agree on? | US Politics in :60 | GZERO Media


Hi, it’s Ben White, Chief Economic Correspondent for Politico, with your Christmas week edition of US Politics In just 60 Seconds. Alright, let’s start the clock. Well, as chief justice, he presides over the trial, but it’s largely a ceremonial role. Most of the actual work gets done by senators led by Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. So, it should not put John Roberts in too many difficult political positions. I think it’d be a terrible nightmare for them. I think they’d lose every swing state. Too many people afraid that it’s a too left wing ticket and afraid they’d lose their privately provided health care. So, I think it’d be disaster. I don’t think it’s going to happen. Well, they agree on USMCA, the trade deal which looks like it’s going to sail through both houses. Already passed the House, will pass the Senate in January. And they agree that deficits no longer matter. Both parties happy to spend tons of money to avoid a shutdown and send everybody home for the holidays. So, deficits don’t matter. They all agree on that. I’m Ben White for Politico.

  1. They were fearful of FDR'S New Deal, it's always the case with something unknown, in his words, "So, first of all, let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have to fear is… fear itself—-nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance." Privately owned healthcare are fearful of losing their remunerative advantage. Mr. Ben White, could you explain their fear?
