After the longest government shutdown in American history finally ended last week, freshman Congresswoman Jennifer Wexton (D-VA) wants to make sure that it never happens again. Wexton joins the pod to chat with Ed and Daniella about why she forced a vote this week on a resolution stating that “shutdowns are detrimental to the nation and should not occur,” and about what she thought of some of the backlash the vote received. She also fills us in on what it’s been like navigating the halls of Congress as a freshman member during one of the most contentious periods that the Trump administration—and the country—has endured. Also, she really loves "The Wire."
