The World Won’t End If We Default On Debt
A sunburned Sean took the Hannity airwaves and discussed the ongoing deficit debate. The president has started his full-press, full-court fear-mongering with his friends in the media assisting him every step of the way. “They’ve been shouting in the media now for about a week that if the US defaults on its debt the world as we know it is going to come to an end immediately,” said Sean. “It’s not true. It just so happens that the US has defaulted on debt for a brief period back in the spring of 1979. The world didn’t end did it?” This is a moment of truth for Republicans. It is imperative that they don’t give in. When John Boehner walked away this weekend I almost did a back flip,” an ecstatic Sean told his listening audience. “This is why we elected these guys," Sean added.

Brad Paisley On Staying Grounded, His Family
Country music superstar Brad Paisley joined Sean to talk about his latest album, “This Is Country Music.” Some of Sean’s favorite music is country music – Martina McBride, Sara Evans, etc. “Country music is unique,” Paisley explained to Sean. “We sing about patriotism, religion, even divorce.” Sean was impressed by how grounded Paisley was. “All these things that I might win, all these concerts I’ll play, all these records I’ll make they won’t matter in the end. All that matters is what you did for people,” Paisley told Sean. “Did I do something good with this? Have I helped out people that are less fortunate? That is what will determine whether or not you’re happy.” You can watch Sean’s interview with Paisley by clicking here.
Rubio: Debt Reduction Has To Be All Encompassing
Marco Rubio (R-Fla) joined Sean on the NewsMaker Hotline to discuss the debt ceiling debate. Rubio felt that in order to deal with the massive amount of US debt that any deal is going to have to be comprehensive and all encompassing. “There has to be some short term reductions in spending and systemic reductions in the way we spend money. So how we’re going to save Medicare and Social Security has got to be on the table as well. We also have to have the conversation about how we plan to grow our economy. While the number one issue in Washington right now is the debt, the number one issue across America is the lack of jobs – which by the way, is directly related to our debt,” Rubio told Sean. “We have got to get the economy growing and creating new jobs. And how we do that is through tax reform and regulatory reform – not tax increases.”
From 2000-2008, Rubio served in the Florida House of Representatives. During this period, he served as Majority Whip, Majority Leader and Speaker of the House, effectively promoting an agenda of lower taxes, better schools, a leaner and more efficient government and free market empowerment.

At the end of his tenure as Speaker, Rubio resumed his law practice as a sole practitioner. He has also served as a visiting professor at Florida International University's Metropolitan Center, worked as Florida Chairman of GOPAC and as a political analyst for Univision during the 2008 election cycle.
