Truthdig Editor-in-Chief Robert Scheer and the other “Left, Right & Center” panelists discuss the 2016 Republican budget, Loretta Lynch’s confirmation hearings for the post of attorney general, and Benjamin Netanyahu’s electoral victory.

Editor-in-chief of The Nation magazine Katrina vanden Heuvel said Netanyahu traded his nation’s long-term security and close relationship with the U.S. for personal gain: “He ran a cynical, scorched earth campaign.” Scheer called the election a disaster for people who care about Israel. And Rich Lowry of the National Review said, “We’re witnessing this amazing temper tantrum.”

This week’s show was moderated by Josh Barro of The New York Times.
