Beg to Differ: Political calculus

In our very first episode, Bryan Schott and Rep. Mike Winder offer a prognosis following the House vote on health care.

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke is coming to Utah to visit Bears Ears and Grand Staircase. Is either national monument in trouble? There may or may not (but likely will) be a special election coming up to replace republican Jason Chaffetz in Congress. Who should set the rules for that election? Will democrats be left out? Utah’s schools are caught up in a teacher salary “arms race” to attract and retain teachers. The fallout from the University of Utah health care imbroglio results in a black eye for the Salt Lake Tribune, one of the state’s biggest newspapers. Rep. Winder discusses his proposal to turn the Jordan River into a state park. Plus, we play a political “simultaneous game.”
