Reps. Emanuel Cleaver, D-Missouri, and Kevin Yoder, R-Kansas, visited KCUR studios on Wednesday. Both support Presudent Trump's decision to launch cruise missiles into Syria, but question his reluctance to release personal tax documents.

From attempts to overturn Obamacare to rumors of sweeping tax reform, there's plenty going on in the federal Capitol these days — not to mention the White House. Today, Democrat Emanuel Cleaver, of Missouri, and Kansas' Republican Kevin Yoder, both U.S. representatives, discuss the issues congress is grappling with now and will likely deal with in the near future. They also share their thoughts on President Donald Trump's first 88 days in office.
