The Real Way To Cut Debt
Guest host Larry Elder took the Hannity airwaves on Monday and addressed the topic on the minds of most Americans - our massive debt. "The problem with this country," Elder explained, "is that this country has three forms of entitlement programs and they are all on automatic pilot. Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. Even Bill Clinton, right before he was impeached, was about ready to propose privatizing Social Security and they would have gone along with it. It isn't that nobody cares about old people, but any commodity, whether its eggs or health care, if you want to make it more accessible, and cheaper, to the widest number of people possible - prices, private sector, competition and capitalism are the best ways of dealing with this," Elder concluded.

Former Gov. Mark Sanford Opens Up on Extramarital Affair
In his first interview since the news broke about his extramarital affair in 2009, former South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford joined Sean on ‘Hannity.’ Sanford talked opening about his affair and his life since disappearing from the political spotlight. “I fell in love with somebody I shouldn't have. But I think that what everybody focuses on is that moment. There were 10 years before that, where I happen to know this person and she was nothing more than a friend. It was purely plutonic. I didn't see it coming. She didn't see it coming. But it happened.” The former governor was apologetic and recognized the gravity of what he did. “I don't think in some ways, you really lived until you failed. Hopefully not in a monumental level. But I think that there's a period of introspection, a time in the desert that you cannot appreciate until you have been there. If you get off on what your real calling is, if you begin to define it as your work, as important as that might be, t hen a lot of other things fall out of place.” To watch all of Sean’s compelling interview with Mark Sanford please click here.
