About this Episode
Join America's Roundtable Radio co-hosts Natasha Srdoc and Joel Anand Samy in a conversation with a distinguished guest and an American patriot — U.S. Congressman Mike Bost.
Our conversation focuses on America's energy crisis impacting families across the nation, President Joe Biden's policies and OPEC+'s decision to drastically cut production by 2 million barrels of oil per day. The discussion will also highlight America's economic woes and how Washington's policies are shaping the future of the country with rising interest rates adversely affecting first-time home buyers and the persistent US inflation wiping away savings and investments.
Congressman Bost will also bring to the forefront the national security crisis at the U.S. southern border and how it is affecting America's heartland. Terrorists on the FBI watchlist have been apprehended while concerns are raised about those who may have slipped into the US. Due to America's porous borders, the surge of drugs and specifically fentanyl are becoming leading causes of rising drug overdose deaths in the nation.
The conversation will also highlight what is being done to serve America's veterans and and the five House bills led by Congressman Bost to address a number of challenging issues including working to provide veterans a cost of living adjustment due to skyrocketing inflation.
