"If there is a big lesson for Washington, it's that we've proven that when push comes to shove, and our backs are against the wall, we can come together even in the most divided era of my lifetime," said Michigan Congressman Dan Kildee (D-5th District).

Today on Stateside, Congress has approved the massive relief package to aid Americans and businesses during the global COVID-19 pandemic. We talk to Michigan Congressman Dan Kildee about the economic and political lessons we should take away from this crisis. Plus, it's down to the "Final Four" films of our Michigan March Movie Madness contest. Two movie critics discuss which should win the title of the most quintessentially Michigan movie.
