As the national debt ticks upward past $22 trillion, Congress is getting ready to pile on yet more debt as it considers a massive omnibus bill. We discuss with Heritage Foundation budget expert Justin Bogie to unpack the good, the bad, and the ugly. Plus: It looks like Republicans called Democrats’ bluff on the Green New Deal—and they’re relishing it.

We also cover these stories:

  • President Donald Trump will sign the omnibus spending bill, and then declare a national emergency on the border.
  • Former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe reportedly said the Department of Justice was considering whether Trump could be removed from office using the 25th Amendment.
  • Amazon announces it won’t be opening a second headquarters in New York City after all.
