This weekend, Glen talks about the snowstorm that hit the North East, the latest economic headlines, the CBO’s updated prediction that 7 million Americans will lose their current healthcare coverage because of Obamacare, President Obama’s now constant demand for more and more tax increases, and Leon Panetta and General Dempsey’s Congressional testimony on Benghazi.
The bottom line is that Liberal policies make us less safe, less free, and less prosperous. But in spite of these tough political and economic times, there are still things that we can do to make our life better.
Shawn Tully, economist and editor-at-large for Fortune Magazine, joins Glen with his thoughts on the investment markets and his outlook on the economy for 2013. Shawn also says that more taxes are coming that will target the middle class.
Matt Pitzarella, an executive with Range Resources, appears with Glen, and offers a summary of all the economic benefits that natural gas has generated over the past year.
