Shutdown Over, Democrats Angry With Schumer

Jan 22, 2018

On this edition of Political Rewind guest hosted by Rickey Bevington, we break down the compromise between Republicans and Democrats to end the government shutdown, and the anger that many Democrats are expressing towards Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer for his negotiations with Mitch McConnell.  We’re also talking about how the shutdown has impacted Georgia and how things could be worse for the state if another shutdown happens in three weeks.  Also, Atlanta has made the shortlist for Amazon’s second headquarters, but what will it cost to the state and taxpayers to finish first?
