Congressman Mark Pocan

In his six-and-a-half years in Congress, U.S. Rep. Mark Pocan has watched — and helped — the House's progressive caucus grow. With a Democratic majority in the House, Pocan's role as Congressional Progressive Caucus co-chair puts him front and center on everything from policy debates to the question of whether to start an impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.

Pocan joined Wedge Issues host Jessie Opoien to talk about those issues, along with the important questions about his favorite Wisconsin beers and cheeses.
