Fighting Austerity with Senator Joe Nguyen (LD 34)

Sen. Joe Nguyen, D-34

Because of the pandemic, our state is facing a projected $4.4 billion budget shortfall over the next three years. In the upcoming legislative session, Republicans are expected to push for so-called austerity measures, which disproportionately impact people of color and the working class.

Democratic Senator Joe Nguyen (LD 34) is actively pushing back. He joins us to talk about the fight ahead, and he lays out his vision for progressive taxation.
