In Today’s edition of The Heartland Daily Podcast, we listen in as Senior Fellow Peter Ferrara talks with Inside Track radio. Ferrara was on to discuss, among other things, the GOP budget proposal and how entitlement reform could save trillions of dollars and help millions of people.
During the interview, Ferrara and the show’s hosts discuss what the proposed budget would mean to our nation’s defense spending. They also talk about the nuclear negations with Iran and the likely impacts such a deal would have on the geo-political landscape.
In the second half of the interview, Ferrara talks about his new book, Power to the People: The New Road to Freedom and Prosperity for the Poor, Seniors, and Those Most in Need of the World’s Best Health Care. America is quickly accelerating toward a spending crisis due to ever growing entitlement programs; Ferrara addresses this problem with a host of free-market solutions.
