Politics Podcast: ALL OF THE Political News You Missed THE OTHER DAY

The other day Sens. Joe Manchin and Chuck Schumer announced that they had reached an agreement on a climate, tax and healthcare bill an outcome that seemed unlikely just weeks hence. In this installment of the FiveThirtyEight Politics podcast, the crew discusses how Congress has been passing a slew of legislation recently and whether that trend will continue with the brand new Inflation Reduction Act. Talking about inflation, the team also reduces the way the latest economic debate if the U.S. is entering a recession could affect the midterm elections.

Finally, they cover some juicy political news from the other day, like the relaunch of Andrew Yangs Forward Party, which includes joined forces with two centrist groups, and the Washington Posts report that the Department of Justice is looking at former President Donald Trumps actions regarding its Jan. 6 criminal investigation.
