Republicans in Congress were prepared to agree to a fairly innocuous budget deal with the Democrats with little fuss. But many conservatives were not willing to play ball, as outside groups lobbied against the deal and Senate Republicans voted against it... all of which made House Speaker John Boehner not a particularly happy man. Host Ken Rudin talks to Washington Post political reporter Aaron Blake about the week's political news, as well as with conservative strategist Keith Appell, who argues that Republican leaders have, once again, sold their souls. Plus: a new trivia question, and "this day in history" brings us back to Joe Wilson (of "You lie!" notoriety) coming to Congress. Read the full description.
