Who are those intransigent House members behind the government shutdown?
On August 21, 80 members of Congress signed a letter authored by Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) demanding the House defund Obamacare in exchange for passing a clean CR.
Introducing Rep. Stephen Fincher from Tennessee. According to the Fincher and his wife have been receiving government payments of almost $3.5 million for their farm from 1999 to 2012. But Rep. Stephen Fincher – the same Stephen Fincher who receives payments from the government – cut $40 billion from the food stamp program.
