For the past year, conservatives have coalesced around the number one enemy: health care reform. But now that it's over, we explore what’s next for the GOP. The Tea Party Express III kicks off this weekend and some wonder if that's the future of the Republican party. Is it still possible to be a moderate Republican?


Troy Senik joins us. He's a senior fellow for the Center for Individual Freedom, a conservative think tank and served as a speechwriter for President George W. Bush. He’s currently co-authoring a book on the future of the Republican Party.
