VPOD: Congressman Dave Brat
Congressman Dave Brat (R-VA) is perhaps best known for besting former GOP Majority Leader Eric Cantor in a stunning upset back in 2014. While that certainly changed the national and Virginia political landscape, this economics professor sits on the House Budget Committee and is making a whole lot of sense regarding the Affordable Care Act, the return to “regular order”, and how the CBO stifles reforms.
In this podcast, Congressman Brat discusses pursuing a targeted corporate tax rate of 15%, the complications associated with “pay-for”, a “once generational” opportunity to swing America back to fiscal responsibility, and the looming $100T mandated problem. We also discuss the crisis America will face in 20 years if no action is taken.
Congressman Brat is raising the alert. Is anyone listening?
