TPP Vote, Jeb Bush, and Caitlyn Jenner [ISLM]
Today I hosted 3 full hours of programming!
Rick Newman from Yahoo Finance and I discussed the record breaking numbers Jeb Bush is bringing in for his pseudo presidential campaign. (He hasn’t officially announced) How much exactly? It’s estimated that Bush could bring in $500 Million before 2015 is over with.
Next in hour 2, I spoke with Max Richtman, President of the NCPSSM. A proposal in the TPP calls for the cutting of Medicare to pay for the trade package. Wow! Cutting programs that help hard working Americans to fund a trade bill that displaces American workers. Seems a little backwards to me. Good thing it didn’t pass the House!
In hour 3 I start my first discussion regarding Caitlyn Jenner. I argue that true feminism is not about criticizing her for looking good, but celebrating her individuality and freedom to be who she is.
And finally, I have a one-on-one discussion with Chairman of Sonecon Dr. Robert Shapiro to wrap up the program. We don’t necessarily see eye to eye on the TPP, but offer some strong counterpoint conversation about the key issues surrounding the controversial trade bill.
