In this installment of the FiveThirtyEight Politics podcast, the crew debates whether the new $900 billion stimulus package is a one-off attempt to avert crisis or a model for compromise in the Washington, D.C., that President-elect Biden will inherit. They also discuss what makes the runoff elections in Georgia different from elections in other battleground states.
