Civil Discourse / Senator Martin Heinrich

Senator Martin Heinrich (D-NM) spent the Fourth of July 2017, in Silver City and Jamie Newton – host of GMCR/KURU’s public affairs program Civil Discourse – interviewed the Senator live early that morning.

The interview covered a wide range of topics of interest to GMCR listeners, including:

  • Senator Heinrich’s top legislative priorities for the current session
  • Bipartisan cooperation in the Senate and House, in the current antagonistic environment
  • The future of affordable health care
  • Full access to quality education from early childhood through college, employment justice with a living wage and equal pay for women, tax relief for the working poor… as wealth and power become increasingly concentrated in the hands of a few
  • Threats to protection and preservation of National Monuments, public lands, water resources, and marine sanctuaries
  • Immigration policies and practices
  • How fares the republic? American democracy in an era of dark money and fake news
  • Alleged Russian intervention in US elections, and US-Russia relations in such conflict zones as Syria and Ukraine
