As we prepare for the relaunch of DecodeDC, we are continuing to repost some of our past episodes. This week we re-present our conversation with former congressmen Jim Kolbe, a Republican from Arizona who served in the House for decades. Similar to many of his Republican colleagues, Kolbe is a strong fiscal conservative. But what makes Kolbe such a fascinating political character is what makes him very different from many members of the GOP. He’s pro-choice, and he’s openly gay. Kolbe describes his outlook on the future of Congress — what should change, and what can’t change. On another note, stick with us as we prepare for the relaunch. Very soon we’ll have a multimedia blog, new logo and even more content!
