The Omicron variant of COVID-19 has been surging and Americans looking for a test have been faced with long wait times and a scarcity of at-home testing kits. Louisiana Republican Senator Bill Cassidy joins to explain why he’s disappointed in the Biden administration’s pandemic response and how the science surrounding cloth masks has evolved. Later, Senator Cassidy weighs in on Democrats’ push to change the filibuster to pass voting rights legislation and his hopes President Biden and the Democrats attempt to work in a bipartisan manner on issues important to Americans.

Though fewer jobs are now being created in the U.S. than economists initially predicted, we’re seeing stable labor force participation rates, the lowest unemployment rate recorded since before COVID-19, and American workers making more money now than ever before. With increasing inflation levels, continuous supply chain disruptions, and a prominent rise in people quitting their jobs to seek better opportunities, it seems the current state of our economy is riddled with contradictions. Associate Editor of The Wall Street Journal John Bussey is here to explain how our economy manages to look this way amidst COVID-19 and offers potential predictions about what we can expect in light of the Omicron variant’s recent surge in the U.S.
