We just heard President Obama's remarks on the government shutdown and the Affordable Care Act. For some analysis we're joined by KPCC's Washington correspondent Kitty Felde and democratic congresswoman Janice Hahn. She represents the 44th district, which includes San Pedro and Compton and she sits on the transportation and small business committees.
