Senator Mike Doherty was our guest for the first half hour of the show.  Doherty spoke about his proposed legislation to equalize education funding throughout the state and was non-committal about running for U.S. Senate next year.

During the second half hour we had a call from “Mark from Anna Little’s district” who called into to say that he had information that many people were calling their congressmen in support of President Obama’s plan (whatever that is) for the debt ceiling.  Mark said another report said calls were coming into Washington in favor of Speaker Boehner’s plan.  Mark’s point was to ask listeners to call their congressman to support reduced government spending.

The last twenty minutes of the show are Dick LaRossa and I speaking about the debt ceiling.  Here’s what a commenter said about that portion of the show:

Art, I didn’t catch all of the show. When I was able to turn in, some guy was rambling on incoherently about Social Security bonds and some 1983 law. (Who was he?) I am a big fan, Art, but you should have cut him off rather than let him ramble on like that. I bet he put half your audience to sleep reading that non-sense for what seemed like minutes on end.

That guy was my partner, Dick LaRossa.  Dick was passionate that there will be no Social Security crisis if the government defaults. He was railing against Obama and the Democrats scare tactics regarding the debt ceiling.   I have to go back and listen to the end of the show myself to be sure I understand what he was talking about!

I hope you enjoy the show and that you will tune in next Tuesday from 5PM-6PM at WIFI AM 1460 or on the Internet at WIFI1460AM.com.

The show is sponsored by Repatriot Radio.

    Amount of spending cuts offered by the President=$4.7 trillion.

    Amount that the Republicans offered to raise additional revenue by increasing taxes on those making millions or billions of dollars per year=0

    Thanks Bob, but you left something out….what percentage of our government’s revenue is currently paid by those making millions or billions of dollars per year?

    How much of that revenue would be lose if they moved that earning capacity off shore?

  3. Proud Republican said at 7:13 am on July 27th, 2011:

    Wow Bob English has the liberal talking points down to a tee. Since when did working hard and becoming successful become a crime that needs to be punished? How about taxing the 50% of wage earners who currently don’t pay any income taxes? This is what I would love to see happen – every rich person close their business, throw everyone out of work and flip the bird to Obama and the Democrats on their way to the Cayman Islands.

    People keeping money they earned doesn’t offend me.

    The Government taking my money and giving it to other people and businesses for “subsidies” and “grants” and “benefits”

  5. Bob E said at 1:11 pm on July 27th, 2011:

    I know we are not going to change each others minds so I won’t try. Only thing I will add is that in retrospect the country woud have been far better off if the top 1% did not get (and continue to get the Bush tax cuts) and that budget provisions were made to pay for the two wars.

    If they do not want to raise the rates now, than how about closing the loopholes so the top 400 income earners actually pay the top rate rather than roughly 17%? Remember what Warren Buffett said???….their secretaries pay a hgher tax rate.
