The news cycle continues to take its toll, and the president's reactionary nature is taking its toll on Brian's ability to find any logic. After refusing to acknowledge a potential recession, Trump flips the script to propose a temporary cut to payroll taxes and stimulate an economy that's already well-stimulated? Sensationalism, mixed signals don't just shock and confuse the everyday American - even a financial advisor like Brian Wiley just can't make sense of things. Attorney and history fan Steve Rausch provides a salient quote from Benjamin Franklin (1787): “Well, Doctor, what have we got — a Republic or a Monarchy?” “A Republic, if you can keep it.” The American people face many challenges. That's life. One challenge we must take on is being honest with ourselves and each other, and continue to question leadership. This republic belongs to everyone, but the administration doesn't seem to behave like that.
