Party Politics, National Edition Ep. 41: Have We Lost Complete Faith In The Government?

“If you have a shutdown unified government that is basically the cherry on the dysfunctional sundae that is Washington politics” – Brandon Rottinghaus, co-host of Party Politics, on the battle in Congress to pass a budget bill.

Republicans in Congress are scrambling to avoid a chaotic government shutdown that could overshadow their signature tax bill before it even gets signed into law.

On the latest episode of Party Politics, co-hosts Jay Aiyer and Brandon Rottinghaus walk us through a very, very busy week on the political scene, but what’s new there right? 

  • Using swearwords and what that means when you’re president
  • Steve Bannon plans to talk to lead Russia investigator Robert Mueller

  • President Trump – girther-gate, Stormy Daniels
  • Government shutdown – no DACA deal in sight
And finally, Brandon and Jay explain just why your faith in the government and institutions are at an all time low. Check out our weekly Texas-centered episode too which you can subscribe to on Apple Podcasts. Tweet us using #PartyPoliticsPod or email partypoliticspod@houstonpublicmedia.org.
