Kevin Glass (Franklin Center for Government and Public Integrity) and Zack Beauchamp (Vox)

On Rational Actors, Kevin and Zack discuss Rand Paul’s embattled aid Jack Hunter and his defense of the Confederacy. They explore the intellectual divisions among libertarians and how they affect Paul’s presidential ambitions. Are neo-Confederates by definition racists? Moving on to agricultural policy, they debate the House GOP’s decision to separate food stamps from farm subsidies. Kevin suggests Republicans are more influenced by the farm lobby than by grassroots conservatives. Zack accuses Republicans in Congress of having no interest in legislating.
