The European Commission this week unveiled a sweeping €750 billion proposal to get the EU’s economies back on track. POLITICO’s budget guru Lili Bayer, along with Andrew Gray, Matthew Karnitschnig and Rym Momtaz break down the plan and preview the battles ahead. We assess the mood in Commission HQ and around the Continent, and ask whether Ursula von der Leyen and her team have emerged strengthened from the skirmishes so far.

Noé Debré, the creator of “Parlement,” a TV comedy set in the European Parliament, is our special guest. POLITICO’s Cristina Gonzalez and Maïa de La Baume get the behind-the-scenes scoop on how the show came about, how it’s been received inside the Parliament and what makes EU lawmaking funny.
