Friday on The Chad Hasty Show, District 19 Representative Jodey Arrington called in to talk about the looming "government shutdown", and provided insight on what is really happening, as well as what the public can expect if and when it happens.

Describing the intentions of the Democrat party as well as that of the mainstream media, Arrington said,

What they'd like is for this government to shut down, and for everybody to talk about how the Republicans shut the government down, and caused disruptions for our military when we've got imminent threats like North Korea. And they, for heaven sake, they don't want any more talk about how our economy's coming back, and how folks' wages are going up, and how people are creating more jobs, giving bonuses on account of tax reform. As you notice, the national media doesn't want to talk about that any more.

Arrington and Hasty discussed many different angles of the issue, so be sure to listen to the full interview with Representative Jodey Arrington in the video above. (Arrington's telephone audio is a little rough at first, but improves quickly.)
