Every week, St. Louis Public Radio’s Chris McDaniel joins the St. Louis Beacon’s Jo Mannies and Jason Rosenbaum to talk about the week’s politics.

On this week's episode: we recap the new finding in the income tax cut bill, which inadvertently would cause a sales tax increase. Then we discuss the chances of an upset in the 8th Congressional race. We finally close it out with a discussion about Democrat Jill Schupp announcing her run for Senator John Lamping's seat.

Note: After recording, news broke that the Nixon administration was involved in the crafting of the language of the accidental tax increase. You can read about it here.
