Update On Mo. And Ill. Delegations During Lame-Duck Congress
The lame duck Congress is now in session and while historically known as a time of inaction, the large task of avoiding the “fiscal cliff” is ever-present.
The fiscal cliff is a combination of tax increases and spending cuts which would take effect on January 1, 2013, primarily due to the expiration of the Bush-era tax cuts.
Host Don Marsh talked with Rob Koenig, the St. Louis Beacon’s Washington D.C. correspondent.
Among other things, they addressed the new Missouri and Illinois delegations, including U.S. Representative-elect Ann Wagner of Missouri’s second Congressional district.
