William Beach Interview

Posted by: | Comments (0)


William Beach

William Beach, from the Heritage Foundation, joins Bill, the Dog and Dr Jim Leggette on The Morning Show.  Topics discussed include studies they produced on government dependency and economic freedom.  We learn that government dependency is increasing in the US.  Also, economic freedom is declining as well, when compared with the rest of the world.  This is important since there is a link between economic freedom and prosperity.  We also discussed the scoring process used by the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) to determine the impact of legislation.
