Congressman Paul Broun, MD – discusses Fractional Reserve Banking, Sound Money and H.R. 24, a bill to Audit the Fed.
Representative Paul C. Broun, Jr. was elected in July of 2007 to serve the Tenth District of Georgia. Since his arrival in Congress, he has been appointed to the House Homeland Security Committee, the House Committee on Natural Resources, and currently serves as Chairman of the Investigations and Oversight Subcommittee for the House Science, Space, and Technology Committee. Dr. Broun grew up in Athens, Georgia where he attended Athens High School and graduated from the University of Georgia in 1967 with a B.S. in Chemistry. In 1971, he received his Medical Doctor degree from the Medical College of Georgia in Augusta. An internship at Good Samaritan Hospital in Portland, Oregon and a residency at University Hospital in Birmingham, Alabama followed.
Dean Clancy– discussed the Fiscal Cliff, the upcoming Debt Ceiling battle, the continual “crisis culture” and rampant disfunction plaguing Washington.
FreedomWorks’ Legislative Counsel and Vice President, Health Care Policy. He leads our efforts to reverse the government takeover of health care and adopt a patient-centered approach.
Clancy has served as the top White House budget official on health care, Medicare, Social Security, and other major government spending programs; as executive director of the President’s Council on Bioethics; and as a senior policy advisor to the congressional leadership.
Clancy boasts an impressive resume a deep expertise on a broad range of domestic and fiscal policy subjects. Jokingly referring to himself as a “recovering Washington insider,” Clancy works closely with Members of Congress, grassroots activists, and the public to defend and strengthen the world’s best health care system and reduce government interference in the doctor-patient relationship.
“The goal of health reform,” he says, “should not be ‘universal coverage.’ The goal should be lower costs and more freedom, which will produce coverage gains as a natural and welcome by-product. Freedom is the only way to improve health care for everyone. What’s needed in health care is less government, not more.”
