    Government Has a Recent History of Big Successes

    Government Has a Recent History of Big Successes

    The United States has found itself facing many challenges in the decades since the turn of the century. From terrorism to a pandemics to climate change, the federal government’s work is and has been cut out for it. Government successes, however, are often less public than its struggles. Tom Shoop writes on GovExec.com that “it’s not what government has accomplished that’s significant, but what it has prevented from happening.”
    Shoop is editor at large and the former executive vice president and editor in chief at GovExec Media. He has a post on our site right now headlined “Six Big Government Success Stories of the Last Two Decades.” He joined the podcast  to discuss his post and government success stories.

    LGBTQ+ Workers and Discrimination

Prior to joining SBPC, he worked as a Financial Analyst at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and in investment banking at JPMorgan. As part of our #MoneyMonday series, he joined the show me to discuss student debt and the governments role in administering it.

Highly recommend listening and subscribing!

Support hard working Americans

Please stop promoting government agencies and unions who do not want to serve the American public. The same people crying about returning to an office are the same ones sitting side by side with other fans in an indoor sports arena. They are the same ones sitting elbow to elbow in a church, without a mask, pretending to be Christian (while their kids sit in a Sunday school class). They are the same ones that are shooing their kids out the door to sit on a school bus and then in a classroom. Are people really ignorant enough to think that government employees have totally isolated themselves for two years - haven’t stepped a foot outside of their homes, haven’t been to a grocery store or a restaurant? This country has vaccines and masks, but what we lack are people willing to serve, while getting paid, with benefits.
Please promote stories that support hard working government employees.

Biased Against Religious Exemption

The host for episode 171 is definitely biased against those who wish to file for a religious exemption. This is a protection afforded by law and now just a nuisance supervisors must endure. It’s terribly upsetting something that supposedly reports on the American government would be so biased. Please replace him.
