State of the State RI

Guests: Mike Stenhouse, CEO-RI Freedom & Prosperity, rifreedom.org
Stephen Skoly, Chairman-Board of Directors, RI Freedom & Prosperity
Host: Richard August Time: 30 minutes
In his assessment Stenhouse asserts that the proposed budget creates greater dependence on government rather than promoting freedom and prosperity. Dr. Skoly assesses the health care provisions in the budget, and concludes they are regressive at best. Other aspects of the budget are discussed: expansion of free breakfast at schools, pre-K education expansion; school safety/gun control; school choice, all of which are intended to help; but, he price of that help is greater dependency and infringement on constitutional rights. Stenhouse concludes: the budget takes us backwards rather than moving us forward.
