'Left, Right & Center': Is There a Deal in Sight?
There’s progress in Washington. Is it all because of polls showing that the public hates the shutdown? Republicans are getting the blame, according to a Wall Street Journal/NBC survey. And a Gallup poll says only 18 percent of Americans are satisfied with the way the nation is being governed. But now, Republican Rep. Paul Ryan proposes a compromise that even Truthdig Editor-in-Chief Robert Scheer loves. And host Matt Miller talks with tea party Republican Rep. Steve King. In other news, Janet Yellen is the first woman to lead the Fed. A New York Times magazine article shows tense times for Dick Cheney and George Bush.
Scheer and Miller are joined on this week’s “Left, Right & Center” by Rich Lowry, editor of National Review.
