What is Security? Budget Cuts Make Way for War


Never miss a show! Email Signup Apple Podcasts Google Podcasts

While security can be defined as safety from a terrorist attack, true security also means freedom from hunger, joblessness and other social ills. On this program, we take a look at ways the Bush administration plans to spend billions of tax dollars on what it calls security. We also hear about how the state of the economy and potential budget cuts threaten the economic security of many families.
