Dan Proft & Congressman Peter Roskam (R-IL6)

Congressman Peter Roskam (R-IL6) succeeded the venerable Henry Hyde not only to hold the seat Hyde once held but also to occupy the void of conservative intellectual leadership that was left when Hyde passed.

On this edition of Against The Current, Roskam addresses the fundamental question, what policies are Republicans willing to stake their majorities on to accomplish?

Roskam reflects on how the House has changed in the last decade, posits the change that will come under the leadership of House Speaker Paul Ryan, and describes the transformative changes to the federal government that are achievable with a Republican President and Republican-controlled Congress.

Roskam also discusses his work on the House Benghazi Select Committee as well as the investigative work he has done into the IRS' targeting of Americans based on their political and religious views.

Finally, what's next for Roskam? Find out the answers to these questions and more with Congressman Peter Roskam on Against The Current.
