Ricochet Podcast #112: On Wisconsin with Scott Walker and Paul Ryan
We didn't plan this, it just worked out in the last 24 hours that two of Wisconsin's rising stars, Governor Scott Walker and Representative Paul Ryan wound up on the same podcast. The governor discusses unions, his recall battle, and how the situation in Wisconsin could be a harbinger for the federal government. Then, Paul Ryan talks with Peter Robinson about his new budget, how he sells his health care cost structure to his Aunt Ellen, and reveals how Mitt Romney will run on Ryan's budget in the fall. Last, but certainly not least, Ricochet's own Adam Freedman stops by to analyze the SCOTUS health care arguments. A fully packed show!
