Both Sides of the Aisle – Natalie Gochnour is joined on The Right by Sen. Todd Weiler, R-Woods Cross, and on The Left by Shireen Ghorbani, former Salt Lake County Council member. They discuss the release of the 2020 census data, the redrawing of political boundaries, Utah’s first-in-the-nation growth, President Joe Biden’s plan to ship AstraZeneca vaccines abroad and his plan to raise capital gains and audit the rich more aggressively. They also discuss the Biden administration raising the minimum wage for federal contractors to $15 an hour, Utah’s plan for spending COVID-19 relief funds, Utah’s first lady Abby Cox’s fight against the ’empathy crisis,’ the defacement of ancient Native petroglyphs near Moab and Rep. Burgess Owens’ false comments on police funding and crime in Salt Lake City.
