Ian Donnis / RIPR

With Congress on its August recess, Rhode Island Pubic Radio invited the four members of the Rhode Island delegation in to our studio to talk about major issues facing the state and the nation. We continue our series today with Congressman David Cicilline. (This interview was taped before President Obama asked Congress to authorize a strike against Syria.)

Congressman David Cicilline thinks public frustration over broad-based federal spending cuts will lead -- eventually -- to more fruitful budget talks in Congress.
