Dr. Alan Chartock's Morning Commentary

Jun 12, 2019

WAMC's Dr. Alan Chartock discusses a deal reached on rent protections for tenants in New York, and comedian Jon Stewart's scolding speech before Congress Tuesday. He also comments on a new Quinnipiac poll showing former Vice President Joe Biden ahead of President Trump in a hypothetical 2020 matchup. 

Also in the headlines: the Massachusetts House and Senate are expected to vote on a four percent, so-called "millionaire's tax" at a constitutional convention Wednesday.  If passed, the amendment moves a step closer to a place on the 2020 ballot.
