Newly sworn in US congressman Rep. Tim Burchett (R-Tennessee) joins News.Views.Hughes to discuss the “antics” of partisan gridlock and ineffective government on Capitol Hill, including the ongoing government shutdown. He says Democrats “appease their ultraliberal left-wing base” to maintain power and would be unrecognizable to Democrats of a few generations ago. He also weighs in on the broader issue of illegal immigration “undercutting American wages and the American worker,” saying that the US needs to “de-magnetize our country” and “make an example” of those who employ undocumented immigrants.
