We tackle the biggest political news of the week, from the reprimand of a D.C. Councilmember to Governor Larry Hogan calling the Maryland General Assembly "the most pro-criminal group of legislators" he's ever seen.
There are fewer people living without health insurance in the D.C. region than a decade ago, but that doesn’t mean severe health disparities are any less serious. A report released by Georgetown University earlier this year, for example, found that African-American men in D.C. have expected life spans that are 15 years shorter than their white peers in the nation’s capital. We explore the roots of the disparities that still exist and what localities are, or could, be doing to address them.
