House Republican Conference Chairwoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers says the GOP has shifted the political waters in Washington since retaking the House and the Senate, but in an exclusive interview with Roll Call Editor-in-Chief Melinda Henneberger, says Paul D. Ryan’s ascent to the speakership signifies a “new start” for Republicans. “Speaker Ryan has challenged us that we need to be putting forward the specific policy solutions,” McMorris Rodgers said. “We’ve long talked about the future of health care, post the Affordable Care Act, and yet we haven’t put forward that specific legislation.”

A U.S. Congresswoman visited with Mid-Missouri students on Thursday. Representative Vicky Hartzler, who represents the state's fourth congressional district, visited with second graders at Blue Ridge Elementary in Columbia. She spoke with students about getting involved in their communities and promoting good citizenship…"A few years ago, a bill was passed with good intentions to help increase the amount of nutritious foods that the students eat, but unfortunately the way it's been dictated comes down to local schools. It actually caused a lot of kids to quit taking school lunches or throw things away in the trash can and not eat them. I think we need to allow our schools to determine what is served to our kids, because they know best," said Hartzler.

And so they keep pushing us to the limit." [Video]

“Our weak air campaign in Iraq and Syria has allowed ISIS to claim it’s taking on America – and winning. This fuels their propaganda, recruitment, and momentum. We have to step up our game, study their centers of gravity, and use air power for all it brings to the fight to destroy their critical capabilities and put them on their heels.”

Republicans on the House Armed Services Committee have released a new report on the release of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl in exchange for releasing five Taliban inmates at Guantanamo Bay. To discuss the findings, Gwen Ifill talks to Rep. Vicky Hartzler, chair of the Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee, and Loretta Sanchez, a member of the House Armed Services Committee. GWEN IFILL: Representative Hartzler, was Bowe Bergdahl worth rescuing, in your opinion? REP. VICKY HARTZLER (R), Missouri: Well, that’s not to be determined by our report. What we were looking at is actually the circumstances relating to his transfer, and if it endangered Americans, and if the law was violated. And, clearly, we determined that this administration violated the law which says they need to notify Congress at least 30 days before any transfer from Guantanamo Bay. And in addition to that, we found much evidence how this administration misled Congress at every step of the way. In fact, the Taliban five notified they were going to be transferred two days before Congress was even notified. And this is very, very concerning.
