In an address to the nation on Thursday, President Biden announced new incentives to encourage more Americans to get vaccinated.

CBS News chief Washington correspondent Major Garrett joins "Red and Blue" anchor Elaine Quijano with details on the political backlash. Later, Axios political reporter Sarah Mucha and Washington Post congressional reporter Mike Debonis discuss the battle over masking on Capitol Hill, and the latest on a bipartisan infrastructure deal.
