This week, we'll be joined by Slate political reporter Jim Newell to talk about the massive spending bill that newly minted Speaker Paul Ryan pushed through Congress -- and the howls of outrage it stirred among tea party conservatives. 


Then we'll speak with Nick Rathod, executive director of The State Innovation Exchange, also known as SIX, about the fight for progressive policy at the state level.

Finally, we'll talk about what the future looks like for the big climate deal agreed to in Paris last week with Rebecca Leber from The New Republic.
