Podcast: Have Republicans in Congress abandoned policy in favor of politics?

20200708 Imposters Book

Have Republicans in Congress abandoned pursuing good public policy to pursue political power?

Steve Benen, award-winning producer of MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Show, argues that the GOP has become a “post-policy” political party in his new book “The Impostors: How Republicans Quit Governing and Seized American Politics.”

Benen joins Managing Editor Bryan Schott to discuss how the GOP got to this point, and whether this brand of post-policy politics is starting to trickle down to the states. They also talk about the implications for the 2020 election and beyond.
