July 28, 2011 – Hour 1

Today we took a trip to Washington, DC, to find out more about the debt ceiling negotiations that have brought the nation’s legislative process to a standstill.  We travelled to the offices of five of Maryland’s legislators, to bring you answers about why this seemingly-rote budget approval has become a lightening rod for partisan bickering.
In this hour, we’ll hear from Representative Chris Van Hollen, from Maryland’s 8th District, and then Senator Ben Cardin.
