In hour two of Here & Now's April 12, 2018 full broadcast, when Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.) became the first senator to have a baby while in office, some also noted that she's 50 years old — prompting questions about the latest thinking on age and giving birth. Also, two historians speak with Here & Now's Lisa Mullins about the long history of American privacy and infringement, stretching back to Colonial-era search and seizure and the early origins of the National Security Agency. And Republicans often blame programs like Medicare in deficit discussions, and to one group of economists, that is "dishonest." We talk with one member of that group, Martin Neil Baily, former chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers.
