Controversy Surrounds Trump's Proposed Budget

Mar 17, 2017

Today on “Political Rewind,” we first discuss a late-breaking report that recently fired U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara was investigating stock trades made by HHS Secretary (and former Georgia congressman) Tom Price. The report appeared on the website ProPublica.

The 6th District race came up for some discussion, as did the waning days of the Georgia General Assembly.  

Our panel also discussed details of the Trump budget, which has evoked a fair amount of controversy. How might Georgia be impacted?  

We also welcomed a special guest, Sara Taksler, who is a Senior Producer at “The Daily Show.” Taksler's new documentary, "Tickling Giants," tells the story of Dr. Bassem Youssef, known as the "Jon Stewart of Egypt."
