I joined Pete Dominick to debate the Debt Ceiling, Inflation, markets, and extra. I pop into the pod across the 30-minute mark. (Earlier than that, Pete discusses how his teenage daughter obtained scammed out of $5k by a faux border police grift, and why there’s a form of glad ending).
We additionally talk about my thesis of the “Disloyal Opposition” because it applies to Debt Ceilings, fiscal stimulus, and even vaccines.
Politics used to cease on the water’s edge, and whereas we could have disagreed about how we have been going to realize these objectives, everyone needed what was finest for the nation. That’s not true. Politics at the moment are purely a blood sport — it’s nearly energy, not coverage. And that want to win energy at any price — no matter whether or not it’s blood or treasure — is the place we’re right this moment, and it’s greater than a bit unhappy.
