If politics makes your blood boil, stick around and keep your friends and family nearby. They might enjoy the heat in weather like this.

This week in regional politics, Oregon Rep. Earl Blumenauer proposed increasing the federal gas tax because the current one simply doesn’t cover road and bridge maintenance anymore.

The saga over the implementation of the Affordable Care Act took an interesting turn in Oregon as the Cover Oregon Director announced he’s going on medical leave.

And a familiar name in Bend has announced he’s running for the state House.

A hearty political stew to warm your bones, and our political guys are ready to dig in.

Bill Lunch is OPB’s Political Analyst and Jeff Mapes is the senior political reporter for The Oregonian. They joined us to talk politics Friday.
