2015-06-06: The Importance of Personal Responsibility


This weekend, Glen talks about the latest economic numbers, the latest headlines regarding Iran’s nuclear program, and the latest developments in our war against radical terrorism. He also talks about the growing healthcare costs Americans are facing under Obamacare.

Glen talks with Kevin Shivers (Executive State Director of Pennsylvania’s Members of the National Federation of Independent Businesses) about Governor Wolf’s budget proposal, Patrick McLaughlin (Senior Research Fellow at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University) about the growing number of federal regulations, and Michael Barone (Senior Political Analyst with the Washington Examiner) about the growing violence in some of Americas largest cities.
