Political Pundits: Taxes, and Health Care, and Elections, O My!

The thermometer keeps inching upwards, though its hard to tell if its measuring heat or the rhetoric coming out of Washington. The recent Supreme Court decisions have done little to quell the debates on either side, and with a looming election in five months, no one seems interested in backing down.

Monday, on Up to Date, our political pundits--Kansas City Star reporter Dave Helling, University of Kansas political science professor Burdett Loomis, Washburn University political science professor Bob Beatty, and St. Louis Beacon reporter Jo Mannies--return to impart some clarity to the issues that are heating up politics on both the national and local level.

Whether its tax cuts, health care, or the race to the White House, listen in for the latest on Up to Date.

When I host Up To Date each morning at 9, my aim is to engage the community in conversations about the Kansas City area’s challenges, hopes and opportunities. I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers.
