Monday on The Chad Hasty Show, Washington Times columnist and political analyst Matt Mackowiak joined Chad to discuss the latest news from the Nation's capitol.

Mackowiak and Hasty began the conversation talking about the Republican's failure to pass legislation to repair and/or replace the spiraling health care system debacle.

Mackowiak described the overall plan, saying,

This thing was just kind of a mess from the beginning, it was a mess all the way through, and as they tried to make concessions to different folks they ended up losing more support that they were winning, and that's why they ended up pulling it.

Mackowiak and Hasty also discussed the national debt ceiling, tax reform, and Democrats' promises to filibuster the confirmation of President Trump's choice of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court.
