3/2/15 Podcast Steve Roberts

In Podcasts

It is quite the lesson in political science, but Congress has found itself in a bit of a pickle over the DHS funding bill. Closest to the heat is House Speaker John Boehner, who if he allows for a “clean” DHS funding bill to be put on the floor, may still not be able to get it passed, and would infuriate his conservative caucus to boot. But what are the options, as the entire issue is revisited this week? Steve explains the political forces at work in a complicatedly divided Capitol Hill. Steve can also talk about last week’s CPAC gathering, though there weren’t really any surprises.

Lawmakers bought themselves a little time, exactly one week in fact, to figure out the DHS funding matter. However, the week’s session will get off to a lousy start, with Democrats claiming they have a deal that Speaker Boehner would put a clean funding bill on the floor, while Republicans say there is no such deal.
