The two big news items this week are the government shutdown (and debt ceiling fight) and the rollout of the Affordable Care Act. 


To understand the standoff, you have to get into the mindset of the Republican base. We speak withy Erica Seifert, a progressive pollster with Greenberg Quinlan Rosner, about a series of focus groups she and her colleagues conducted with GOP loyalists.

Then we're joined by Paul Waldman, a contributing editor to The American Prospect, to discuss both Obamacare and the shutdown.
