Today was a first on FSN. Our guest, Jo Comerford of National Priorities Project, ended the interview early. Perhaps I was a bit too aggressive, but when someone tells me that we’re not spending enough money on education or health or a myriad of other federal programs, I guess I go into overdrive. Ms. Comerford is a very sincere policy wonk. She believes that government programs like home heating assistance are beneficial and help people. She also believes that we’re not spending enough on programs like Head Start and other well intentioned initiatives and she feels that there’s plenty of money available for them. I challenged her on these points and she beat a hasty retreat. You decide who has the better argument.
