A new report this week from Moody’s Analytics says Michigan would be one of the hargest hit state’s if the debt ceiling fight continues past June. Adam Kamins, Senior Director at Moody’s Analytics, co-authored the report and he joins It’s Just Politics.

Plus, lawmakers in Lansing spent this week working on the state’s budget. With Democrats in the majority and federal relief dollars still to be spent, spending bills look different than in previous years.
