'Left, Right & Center': Washington Chaos—Is There a Way Out?

Tempers flair and House Speaker John Boehner declares “This isn’t some damn game.” Polls show people blame Republicans for the government shutdown, but mostly just dislike Congress. So is there a way out? “Left, Right & Center” host Matt Miller proposes an option that could be a face saver for both sides of the aisle. Governors could opt out of other streams of money from the federal government and design their own universal catastrophic option. 

Rich Lowry of the National Review joins Miller and Truthdig Editor-in-Chief Robert Scheer on this week’s show.
