Episode 112 – State of the Union: What’s Next? Politics, Budget and Bachman

Now that we’re on the other side of the State of the Union, what’s really going to happen, and what will the Republicans and Democrats do next? What are President Obama’s next steps? Did Rep. Paul Ryan offer an appropriate response? Why did Rep. Michelle Bachman offer a speech on the same night as Paul Ryan, and what did the Republican Leadership think about it? What message did she deliver? Was it obscured by her wildly inaccurate and off-base comments about the Founding Father’s ending slavery? Is it okay for a United States Congressperson to be so misinformed when it comes to matters of US History and the constitution? Now that the speeches are over, what will happen with the budget negotiations and the debt ceiling? Oh, and by the way, the US Senate Filibuster Reforms? They went away quietly in the middle of the night just after the State of the Union. The more things change, the more they stay the same.
