Podcast 79: Where's my social safety net?

 Joey and I had a pretty good discussion this week on the political third rail of Social Security. While it is no surprise we (and everyone else in the world) think it is broken, we came to no great solution. Privitization was discussed to some detail. We would love to get some listener feedback on some of their ideas for how to fix this failing system, before Joey and I end up needing it. Please hurry. In this podcast we discuss episodes 9-12 of The West Wing, Season 5.

Various topics discussed in this podcast include:
    Joey's Culture Corner: Randy Pausch Last Lecture
    Principles of an American Life: Article 2 of the Constitution
    Lessons in Parliamentary Procedure
    Dysfunctional Family Dinners
    Assisted suicide revisited
    Mandatory Minimums revisited
    Social Security
    Music by Shayna Zaid
