NPR Houston: A Conversation With Two U.S. Lawmakers: Representative Adam Kinzinger and Senator Mazie K. Hirono
The divide in this country grew strongly over the last number of years.
We saw divisions and distrust, anger and even lies.
At the bottom of it all, we are all Americans who want what is best for our families and our country. But the roads we travel to get there have separated greatly.
Today, we spend the hour with a Democratic senator and a Republican congressman – both working to be agents of change and believing in the promise of this country.
In the first half, Ernie talks with U.S. Congressman Adam Kinzinger, who represents Illinois' 16th district.
Houston Public Media politics and government reporter Andrew Schneider also joins Ernie to discuss the current state of U.S. politics.
