Who Are These Lunatics, and Why Are They Running Things? The Freedom Caucus and the Demise of the Republican Party in the House — Podcast October 19, 2015

Rage, Ignorance, and Obstructionism in the House of Representatives: If Hating the Government Is the Only Qualification a Politician Needs to Get Elected to Congress, Maybe We’re in More Trouble Than We Thought. Paul Schwartz, publisher and democratic activist, pulls up a microphone and joins Democratic Perspective’s regular crew, Mike Cosentino, Gary LaMaster, and Steve Williamson, for a free-wheeling analysis of our dysfunctional House of Representatives. Manufactured debt-ceiling and Planned Parenthood controversies, government shutdown threats, and the seemingly interminable search for acceptably loony candidates for Speaker of the House, starring Paul Ryan and his godawful now-you-see-it-now-you-don’t fan dance. Why can’t these people just do their jobs already?
