Host: The Heritage Foundation.
In Saving Freedom, Senator Jim DeMint addresses his concern that the United States – the world’s great bastion of freedom – is sliding toward socialism. Federal control now extends in various ways to education, health care, financial markets, real estate, businesses, and religion. The walls between government and the private sector are getting thinner every day. Out-of-control government spending and increased debt are draining the economic and political strength of our people. Senator DeMint provides a firsthand account of the behind-the-scenes actions in Congress that are altering the character of our Nation. He illuminates key principles of freedom and how they are being compromised by big government. More important, he lays out an action plan to reclaim America’s freedom based on legislation that would reduce debt, fix Social Security, and provide a tax credit for every family to buy health insurance. And, his plan also emphasizes reversing America’s cultural decline by restoring a strong spirit of God and country.
