Principles and Policies Podcast for 2/15/2014- A Primer On Ignominious Surrender

Our Principles and Policies radio show for Saturday February 15, 2014. Barry Sheets and Chuck Michaelis analyze the recent surrender of the House of Representatives, engineered by House Speaker John Boehner, on the issue of the debt ceiling. We talk about what it means to the average tax payer, what the depth of the problem is and how badly Speaker Boehner botched the whole issue with a “clean debt ceiling,” surrendering everything and getting nothing in return.
