Haley Byrd, congressional reporter at The Weekly Standard, and Katherine Mangu-Ward, Editor-in-Chief at Reason Magazine, discuss the 2nd government shutdown of 2018. The government closed for just over five hours before the House passed a two-year spending bill that was later signed by the president.

Both reporters dig into the details of the budget deal that will add hundreds of billions of dollars to the deficit. They also note the contradiction of Republicans voting to increase spending since the GOP is historically fiscally conservative.
