Buck Wild: How Republicans Broke the Bank with Stephen Slivinski.
In Buck Wild Slivinski argues that Republicans today are the biggest spenders in Washington since President Lyndon Johnson's administration. The author, director of budget studies at the Cato Institute in Washington, DC, encourages Republicans to once again embrace fiscal conservativism and limited government. Stephen Slivinski is joined by Robert Novak at the Cato Institute to discuss the future of the Republican Party.
Cato's executive vice president David Boaz has played a key role in the development of the Cato Institute and the libertarian movement. He is a provocative commentator and a leading authority on domestic issues such as education choice, drug legalization, the growth of government, and the rise of libertarianism.
He is the author of Libertarianism: A Primer, described by the Los Angeles Times as "a well-researched manifesto of libertarian ideas," the editor of The Libertarian Reader, and coeditor of the Cato Handbook on Policy.
Boaz is the former editor of New Guard magazine and was executive director of the Council for a Competitive Economy prior to joining Cato in 1981. His articles have been published in the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, National Review, and Slate.
He is a frequent guest on national television and radio shows, and has appeared on ABC's "Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher", CNN's "Crossfire", NPR's "Talk of the Nation" and "All Things Considered", "John McLaughlin's One on One", Fox News Channel, BBC, Voice of America, Radio Free Europe, and other media.
Robert Novak is a conservative political commentator and political figure. Over his lengthy career, Bob Novak has become well-known as a columnist (writing "Inside Report" since 1963) and as a television personality (appearing on many shows for CNN, most notably The Capital Gang, Crossfire, and Evans, Novak, Hunt, and Shields). After walking off the CNN set during a performance, Novak was suspended by CNN for four months and has since joined Fox News.
