Politics Day

What do you think of the tentative deal to extend all of the Bush tax cuts for two years? Host Ben Kieffer talks with Iowa State University Political Science Professor Steffen Schmidt and Chair of Political Science at Coe College, Bruce Nesmith. We'll get analysis of why this particular compromise was reached, how the sluggish economy fits into the picture, and what it indicates about how President Obama will deal with the shift toward the GOP in Congress.
