Episode 145: Governor Gary Johnson
Denis has an exciting discussion with Gary Johnson, former governor of New Mexico. Gary tells us his plan for balancing the US budget. Not in 5 or 10 years, but immediately. Refreshingly, he doesn't pull any punches: it's going to be painful, requiring cuts to Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security and the military. His opposition to US involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan is passionate, principled, and smart. We hit social issues, too: the war on drugs, health care, and immigration. Give Gary Johnson a listen; it's a worthy investment of your time.
