9NEWS anchor Kyle Clark moderates the program, joined by political experts Ryan Frazier and James Mejia. Ryan is a Republican and former Aurora city council member and candidate for Congress. James is a Democrat who's served on the DPS Board of Education as well as running a campaign for Denver mayor.
This week's program also features progressive writer David Sirota and conservative blogger Kelly Maher.
The panel discusses the continuing inability of Congress and the President to solve the federal spending standoff, and efforts to pass gun control measures in the Colorado legislature.
