This week on Curmudgeon’s Corner Ivan makes his triumphant return, once again joining Sam to talk about the issues of the day. The main topics this time: The healthcare debacle, the future Republican agenda, and the Gorsuch confirmation process. Rounding it out, a little discussion of the intersection of politics and ideology, fiscal responsibility, and Sam discusses a book he read. Fun stuff!

Curmudgeon’s Corner: The Red Button is Bad

On this week’s Curmudgeon’s Corner Sam and Ivan hit three big issues: Trump’s accusation that Obama ordered wiretaps, the new Executive Order on immigration, and the plan to replace Obamacare. Along the way we also touch on an odd constitutional edge case, how Priebus is doing as Chief of Staff, and the usual weekly Russia updates.
