Peter Suderman returns from the weekend at SXSW in Austin, Texas, to join Ben Domenech on Federalist Radio. They discuss the good and bad at SXSW this year, as well as Paul Ryan, the House health care bill, and new movies out like “Kong: Skull Island.” Suderman is an editor at Reason Magazine.

Senator Cory Booker presented at SXSW and spoke on the power of love bringing America together. “He basically didn’t mention policy once in the opening remarks,” Suderman said. “Basically, love as a theory of government turns out to mean everything that Cory Booker supports.”

Later they discussed the GOP’s messy “repeal and replace” plan, and whether this is surprising or disappointing coming from Paul Ryan. “Now that [Paul Ryan] is in leadership, Speaker of the House, I think he really feels an obligation to keep the party together and that is his first job. The policy entrepreneur part has really become secondary,” Suderman said.
