QUICK HIT – Ocasio-Cortez’ Green New Deal is Actually Really Dirty

Dem. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has the idea for a Green New Deal, in the mold of former President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s New Deal, that, in her words, will bring about racial and social justice.

But, as National Review’s Jim Geraghty points out, the “deal” cuts military spending in half and might put an end to non-electric cars.

Jim speaks to Tony Katz about the details, and how dirty this “green” deal really is.

Tony Katz speaks with NRO’s Jim Geraghty about Boehner’s Lawsuit, Impeachment and Gruber’s “Speak-O”

93.1 FM WIBC morning host Tony Katz speaks with Jim Geraghty of National Review about the pressing lawsuit of Speaker Boehner against President Obama. Is this the path to impeachment, and is that the right move?

Also, Dr. Jonathan Gruber – a chief architect of Obamacare – said he made a “speak-o,” a spoken typo, when he said that only the states could provide subsidies in 2012. Another video has him repeating the same point. Where does this leave the future of Obamacare when it goes back to SCOTUS?

Tony Katz Tonight Radio – 4/2/14 – GM Fraud and Ft. Hood

Tony speaks with National Review’s Jim Geraghty about GM’s unwillingness to fix a defective ignition switch that has led to 13 deaths. Was it wilfull, or was it and obscene level of negligence. And, when the auto bailouts happen, did the Obama Administration know about the problem?

Jerad Navjar of DB Capital Strategies talks about the big Supreme Court win for his client over the FEC. What does it mean now that people can give to an unlimited number of candidates, and is it the right decision?

The big story is the shooting at Ft. Hood that has left four dead and 16 injured. Tony has a live feed of the press conference from Texas, and brings in Chuck Devore – a lieutenant colonel in the Army Reserves and Vice-President of the Texas Public Policy Foundation – to discuss the history of weapons on military bases and steps the military can take to better protect soldiers.

Tony gives his perspective as well, on mental illness and those who want to jump the gun to get website hits and social media attention.

Listen, Share and Enjoy. And think of those who lost their lives at Ft. Hood.
