This was no surprise to listeners of this show but the Fed did raise rates for the 4th time in 2018 and this was the 9th rate hike in this tightening cycle.

These scooters are a brilliant innovation of the Free Market and here comes the government trying to halt progress! This episode covers a lot of the crazy rational given by these progressive cities for their “brilliant” move to protect the people.
$1.3 Trillion was added to the national debt in fiscal year 2018 alone! 2018 was Trump’s full fiscal year as president and with a deficit that large I wouldn’t call that draining the swamp!
