Elizabeth Warren talks about infrastructure and the 'Billionaire Space Race' with Seth Meyers

Elizabeth Warren was on "Late Night with Seth Meyers" last night talking about infrastructure, taxes, and the Billionaire Space Race. I begin with Sen. Elizabeth Warren Says Manchin and Sinema Don’t Have All the Power.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren talks about Biden’s infrastructure agenda, Sens. Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema and why the Democratic Party needs to show how they can help the American people.
I agree with Senator Warren that Manchin and Sinema don't have all the power, but they have enough to gum up the works for the infrastructure bills. Here's to hoping both pass, if in scaled-down form.

Next, Sen. Elizabeth Warren Calls Out Billionaires Shooting Themselves into Space.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren calls out the absurdity of billionaires going into space and talks about writing a children’s book.
I'm not as critical as Senator Warren is to a private space race, which Saturday Night Live called "Ego Quest," but I do think that Jeff Bezos and Amazon could pay more in taxes. He, Branson, and Musk would still have enough money to go into space. Speaking of which, there is another Blue Origin launch scheduled for today, but I won't write any more about it for fear of jinxing it. Only after it's successfully completed will I say anything else about it. Stay tuned.
