Podcast: Exposing The Tricks Of D.C. Politicians, And A Note For Our Listeners

Author David Schoenbrod joins Federalist Radio to explain how our elected officials in DC are the root of our broken political system.


Ben Domenech starts off this episode of Federalist Radio sharing some news and a personal note for our listeners. Later in the hour, he is joined in studio by David Schoenbrod, author of “DC Confidential: Inside the Five Tricks of  Washington.”

Schoenbrod explained the real reasons for our broken political system and the sleights of hand that politicians use to avoid accountability. “What really made things go haywire started in the late 1960s, where the representatives were basically able to take credit for the good parts of regulation and avoid blame for the bad parts of regulation,” he said.

Later in the hour, they discuss how even today with the new healthcare legislation, Congress continues to pass off their responsibility to make law onto the regulatory bureaucracies.
