Monday on The Chad Hasty Show, political analyst and Washington Times columnist Matt Mackowiak joined Chad to discuss the latest out of Washington, D.C., including tax reform, the standings of both Republicans and Democrats with elections coming up in the near future, and the hurricane recovery efforts on the Gulf Coast.

About the dire need for Republicans in the House and Senate to make headway on tax reform, Mackowiak said,

There is really incredible urgency here that they get this done, given the failures leading up to this point this year, particularly on health care.
