Govern America | April 4, 2015 | If You Like Your Uranium, You Can Keep Your Uranium

Hosts: Darren Weeks, Nancy Levant

Private prison industry thrives as other industries die. Droughts threaten survival of farmers. Labor-force participation rate at record lows — "another bump on the road to recovery"? Former Dallas Fed president sees turmoil ahead. We examine the nuclear "deal" that purports to solve the alleged problem of Iran getting a N-bomb, and more importantly, Iran's reaction to the administration's announcement. Could the agreement be the gateway to future conflict? Also, we have a Con Con update, John Kerry in all of his "diplomatic excellence", and the military practices rounding up civilians in Florida.
