    Episode 683: Student Loan Debt Forgiveness

    Episode 683: Student Loan Debt Forgiveness

    Newt discusses the Biden administration's new student loan debt forgiveness plan with guest Adam Kissel, a visiting fellow at The Heritage Foundation’s Center for Education Policy. The plan, which is yet to be finalized and is expected to face legal challenges, proposes to forgive up to $20,000 in interest for nearly 30 million borrowers. The plan could reduce payments for 25 million borrowers and erase all debt for more than 4 million Americans. However, critics argue that the plan is regressive, as it would transfer the debt to taxpayers, potentially costing between $519 billion to over a trillion dollars over 10 years.

    Episode 682: Ukraine’s War of Independence

    Putin had intended to conquer and annex Ukraine with a vicious blitzkrieg, redrawing the map of Europe in a few short weeks with seismic geopolitical consequences.

In his new book, Our Enemies Will Vanish: The Russian Invasion and Ukraine’s War of Independence, Yaroslav Trofimov traces the war’s decisive moments to show how Ukraine and its allies have turned the tide against Russia, one of the world’s great military powers, in a modern-day battle of David and Goliath. Newt’s guest is Yaroslav Trofimov, chief foreign-affairs correspondent for The Wall Street Journal.

Intellectually curious, not just politics

Newt has such a long experience in politics snd national life, but he is modest and a great interviewer. He lets his guests speak for themselves. We need mature, wise and smart statesmen/ women now more than ever.

Speaker Gingrich

The greatest Speaker of the House in US History, Clarity and the process of the Contract with America was brilliant and brought cooperation between democrats and republicans. Our system was not perfect then, but is was 5 star compared to the 15 second sound byte politics of today. The House must start taking control of the budget and unfound the Bureaucracy and unlawful regulations they impose. We need leaders like Newt to assume this responsibility.

Not just politics, wide range of topics

Newt has a lot of fascinating interviews that go beyond politics. I’ve been a subscriber for a few years. Recent interview on combatting aging is very informative. I also enjoy his historical bios of past presidents influential people and non-political subjects. Sometimes we all need a break from politics!
