The Sunday Spin: Politics with Rick Pearson Full Show 3/12/17
It’s another big show on this week as the city celebrates St. Patrick’s Day weekend and the clocks move ahead an hour.
We’ll kick off the show with Dave updating us on the news and Sam bringing us the sports and then we’ll take our weekly spin through national politics, including the rollout of the House Republican’s plan to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare.
Then, Dan McGrath stops by the studio. Dan is the president of Leo High School and the former sports editor of the Chicago Tribune. Leo is celebrating its 90th anniversary this year and will be marching in the South Side Irish Parade to celebrate its roots. We’ll talk to Dan about Leo, its challenges, and I’m sure we’ll talk some sports.
After that, Democratic state Rep. Chris Welch of Hillside chimes in. He has a bill that is aimed at allowing local governments to share information to make sure they’re getting reimbursed properly by the state. We’ll also talk about other legislation and the latest on the Springfield stalemate.
For our last guest, we’ll be speaking to central Illinois Republican U.S. Rep. Rodney Davis of Taylorville. We’ll talk about the rollout of the Obamacare alternative as well as the House GOP’s relationship with the new Trump administration.
There’s a full show right there and we hope you’ll listen in to the conversation.
