Connections: Congressman John Katko


Congressman John Katko is our guest for the hour. The Republican is serving his second term in Congress after defeating Democrat Dan Maffei in 2014.

We discuss a wide range of topics: the GOP's next move on health care; what to do about Syria; refugees and immigration. The Congressman explains why he opposes cutting funding for public broadcasting, and we even talk about his love of Bruce Springsteen, if not all of The Boss' politics.
