Curmudgeon’s Corner: Intentionally Obtuse

On this week’s Curmudgeon’s Corner, Ed joins Sam for a discussion on the disaster response in Puerto Rico, the tax reform debate, and the hubbub over NFL players kneeling for the anthem. In addition to those major topics, they also discuss the Trump administrations ongoing approach to Obamacare, energy usage trends, Secretary Price’s private plane flights, a movie Sam saw, and more!
