Fiscal Responsibility Is For Suckers

Debtageddon! Dollarpocalypse!

Every other “crisis” gets a clever -geddon or -pocalypse term, so why not the looming U.S. debt cap deadline? That’s the topic of this weeks discussion (the debt cap, not the silly phrases). It’s important for every American to understand what is going on with the government’s budget right now, and we do our best to break this issue down in a way that everyone can understand. Beer helps. You’ve got from now until Aug 2nd to prepare, and we’ve got all the info you need! So grab your helmet, your mug, and give a listen.
