The Mad Centrist - The political podcast for the rest of us.
The MAD Centrist – named after the Kurt Vonnegut quote from The Monkey House, “A sane person to an insane society must appear insane.”
Debt ceiling? Debt? Deficit? These terms get tossed around often in the news, but what do they mean? In the 2nd in a series of money issues in politics, this episode deals with the Deficit: some history, some politics, and how America can improve our collective situation.
As an added bonus a short redux of what The Mad Centrist is all about.
