On this podcast edition of “The Score” radio show…
Republican U.S. Representative Randy Forbes of Virginia’s Fourth Congressional District, who voted for the “Cut, Cap and Balance” debt and deficit reduction plan last week, talks with Scott Lee about that vote and the latest from inside the House. Representative Forbes has written in detail about CC&B and been one of its most vigorous proponents.
And the Virginia General Assembly is still in session (which may help explain the beastly heat the region is enduring). The worthies are still trying to finalize the new congressional district lines as a result of the 2010 census. What does that have to do with how Virginia selects its judges and if the system needs to change? That’s one of the topics Delegate Brenda Pogge, (R-96, James City County), a leading social conservative in the House, discusses with Scott Lee.
In the Two Minute Drill, Jim Hoeft takes a look at the debt ceiling theatrics in DC and wonders about Gov. McDonnell’s walk-on role in the production. Jim suggests that the Governor, while motivated by good intentions, may want to reconsider his call for a compromise that could very well include tax increases, and focus instead on putting some distance between Virginia’s economy and the federal leviathan.
