sperlingcover.jpgIT’S A BIPARTISAN ELECTION DOUBLE-HEADER. We caught up with Rudy Giuliani as he barnstormed across Florida this weekend, and asked him about the Second Amendment (he says it protects “an individual personal right to bear and carry arms, not just one that’s related to the militia”), about health care, energy policy (including the Zubrin plan), and much more.

Gene Sperling is the author of The Pro-Growth Progressive: An Economic Strategy for Shared Prosperity. He also chaired the National Economic Council in the Bill Clinton Administration, and serves as senior economic advisor to the Hillary Clinton campaign. He talks about Hillary’s stimulus package, health care, and whether we’re in danger of 1970s style “stagflation” again.
