August 2, 2011 – Hour 1


Both the House and the Senate have now passed the compromise bill that will raise the debt ceiling in exchange for deep spending cuts.  We checked in with four of Maryland’s congressional representatives about their votes, and where we go from here.
Joining us were:
Representative John Sarbanes, Democrat from Maryland’s 3rd District
Representative Dutch Ruppersberger, Democrat from Maryland’s 2nd District
Representative Elijah Cummings, Democrat from Maryland’s 7th District
Representative Donna Edwards, Democrat from Maryland’s 4th District
