Recap: Five questions for the White House; Amy Poehler’s commencement speech; and the GOP’s stale jobs agenda.


1) In 1979, the United States accidentally missed some of its bond payments — and paid for it.

2) Someone should have told John Boehner that the Ryan budget includes the Affordable Care Act’s Medicare cuts.

3) Speaking of which, a nice chart showing that total health-insurance premiums for seniors would increase, not decrease, under Ryan’s plan.

4) The future of cafeteria food.

5) I’ll be talking about the GOP’s allergy to taxes on Lawrence O’Donnell’s show tonight.
