Party Loyalty?

July 24, 2017

After three failed attempts in the Senate to dismantle Obamacare- there's no Republican hoping for a win this week more than Donald Trump.

Even if that means going after his own party to do it. Like in a tweet over the weekend, where he wrote, β€œIt’s very sad that Republicans, even some that were carried over the line on my back, do very little to protect their president.”

The president, of course, was talking about loyalty – something that to him is in short supply in Washington these days.

But is the president right about disloyalty or is he the source of the problem?

Former Massachusetts state treasurer and Trump supporter - Joe Malone; professor of political science at Wellesley College, Katharine Moon and former policy director with the Romney administration, now a senior fellow at the Pioneer Institute, Charlie Chieppo join Jim to discuss.
