With Republican John Boehner, the Speaker of the United States House of Representatives having announced his resignation at the end of this month, and Kevin McCarthy, the leader of the Republican majority in the House choosing not to be a candidate for Speaker in the election now set for October 29, the House is reportedly in chaos.
In this edition of Radio Curious we visit with Congressman Sam Farr, a long time friend, who has represented Monterey and Santa Cruz counties on the central coast of California since 1993.   We discuss the presence of the “Freedom Caucus” in the House of Representatives, and the current consequences of its efforts to unseat Speaker Boehner.   Congressman Farr also explains his views on other current political issues.
Sam Farr and I visited by phone from his apartment in Washington D.C. on October 9, 2015, and began our conversation when I asked him to provide a context to the current political fray in the House of Representatives.

The book Sam Farr recommends is “The Wright Brothers,” by David McCullough.
