Jerome Powell's nomination to 2nd term as fed chair seen as steady force to manage inflation

Iowa’s governor is under scrutiny again for the way her administration handles federal money.

We get to all of that with Democratic political consultant Kevin Perkins and former Iowa State Rep. David Millage.

“I think this really is a prudent and wise move by the president,” Perkins said. “You do need some stability, particularly with COVID.”

“I believe it’s the right move to make,” Millage said. “The progressives are wrong on this one.”
