BOSTON (CBS) – Remember when politics was about more than just grandstanding and party dynamics? Lawmakers from both sides of the aisle used to actually work together to compromise and improve the lives of American people. Thomas O’Neill III, son of former Speaker of the House Tip O’Neill, sits down with Dan to talk about our current state of politics and how it compares to the challenges his father faced under President Reagan. Have our politicians lost sight of their responsibility to our country? Or do you think this battle is too important for either side to budge?
