Congressman Dave Brat of Virginia’s 7th district joins Federalist Radio Hour to reflect on the last couple months of change and controversy in Congress. Brat discusses health care, tax reform, how to respond to an angry electorate, and the importance of a leader’s faith.
Brat sheds light on how negotiations went down among the Freedom Caucus during the AHCA debates. “We’ve already gone along with a federal program…which keeps all the Obamacare regulations and the press calls us ‘obstructionists’ for wanting one element of a free market outcome,” he said.

Which is roughly speaking, the Judeo-Christian tradition, the Rule of Law, and free markets. And you can the Left on three just chipping away.”
