We conclude our series of interviews with the Inland Empire's four freshmen Members of Congress, Elected less than a year ago to serve in one of the most dysfunctional Congressional sessions in recent history.
Republican Congressman Paul Cook represents the IE's 8th Congressional District, including Yucaipa and the San Bernardino County high desert and mountain resort communities. In Part 1 of his conversation with KVCR's Ken Vincent, Congressman Cook expresses frustration with both sides of the political standoff in Washington, D.C., urging leaders of both parties to "stop the finger-pointing and bomb-throwing," and work toward a practical, long-term compromise that will allow the federal government to reopen and pay its bills.
