On Friday's edition of The Chad Hasty Show, District 19 Representative Jodey Arrington joined the broadcast to talk about all the latest news from Washington, D.C.

Among the topics discussed were the status of the farm bill and welfare, agriculture and national security, illegal immigration, banking regulations, and the continuing drama surrounding negotiations between the United States and North Korea.

While speaking about the work requirements for welfare recipients, which is one of the 'sticking-points' for passage of the farm bill, Arrington said,

I don't know how someone could not vote for twenty hours of mandatory work for able-bodied people on food stamps. But the Democrats are digging their heels in. I think its just a mid-term election political dynamic.

Arrington and Hasty also discussed this week's cancellation of scheduled talks with North Korea over their nuclear weapons program, and the reasons for the cancellation. About President Trump's decision Arrington said,

We've let [the North Korean leadership] go way too long, we've let them run on a leash that has gone way too far, and now we're in, I think, serious risk to have an ICBM carrying a payload of nuclear weapons to our homeland. So this is serious, I think the president made the right decision, but he left the door open to talk, and I think you always have to do that.
