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.
