As the arctic vortex and winds barrel east toward New York, we look at preps for both the cold in New York and chill in the corridors of congress as we await president Trump’s delayed State of the Union address. Now rescheduled for next Tuesday by speaker Pelosi, we have a preview of what we may see when Donald Trump takes the podium in front of a very divided congress. Getting rid of gridlock on capitol hill, Philip K. Howard, noted advocate for simplifying government, is here with a common sense solutions so things can actually get done. Tonight join us as we look at the dream that was the Midwest through the eyes of Director, Christopher Rufo. Now a rust belt of broken dreams, we have an inside look at America’s “forgotten cities.”
