This is an insider’s look at today’s Washington politics. The authors gained access to the likes of House Republicans like Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (Calif) and Minority Whip Steve Scalise (La) and others like Freedom Caucus co-chairs Mark Meadows (N.C) and Jim Jordan (Ohio) along with now retired Paul Ryan (Wis). This is a blow-by-blow account of Congressional in-fighting of the worse kind while recognizing that there are members on both sides of the aisle who believe they can make a difference to benefit their constituents and the country. The authors are insiders themselves-they run Politico’s morning newsletter, Playbook and provide the reader with a fresh look at the evolution of key political battles during the first two years of the Trump administration.
