Punchbowl News’ First 100 Days: A Three Part Series
APRIL 20TH, 2021 @ 4:30 p.m. EST
Washington has spent much of the first part of Joe Biden’s presidency focused on passing a massive Covid relief package and trying to get the president’s Cabinet in place. Now, D.C. is shifting gears. In the next few months, we’ll see Congress and the White House try to repair the damage the pandemic has wreaked on the economy. Punchbowl News Founders Jake Sherman and Anna Palmer will sit down with Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) to discuss how the government can help stimulate the economy in the post-Covid world. Collins is one of the most important political figures in Washington. This will be one of her first national interviews of the Biden era. Afterward, Edelman’s Lisa Ross will join the conversation to discuss key takeaways from the conversation and dig into Edelman’s 2021 Trust Barometer, which found that 53 percent of people are still fearful about job loss as a result of the pandemic.
