“Your Swamp, Or Mine?” (with Yaron Brook), TODAY at 2 p.m. ET (11 a.m. PT)

The GOP leadership orchestrated a vote on a 2,200-plus-page bill to fund the government (not really a budget?) to the tune of $1.3 trillion–within 48 hours of its release! Almost no one was able to read it before voting on it, and it’s doubtful Trump really knew what he was signing. Senator Rand Paul tweeted out over 600 pages of it, informing us of plenty of provisions that will, no doubt, encourage the proliferation of various swamp flora and fauna.

This raises the question:

There are a couple other issues in the news to which this question applies, unfortunately. See Program Notes, below, for all the stories, etc., I’ve lined up to discuss with Yaron.

The show will be broadcast live on BlogTalk Radio here and also via streaming video on Yaron’s YouTube Channel as well as on his show’s Facebook page here.
