It’s “Young Gun” week for Republicans in Washington. They are three rising GOP congressional stars with very conservative views about the way ahead for this country, making a lot of noise.

Their idea man, young gun Paul Ryan, congressman from Wisconsin, is with us today.

His “Roadmap for America’s Future” pulls out the axe, big time, on government spending.  It proposes big changes for Social Security, Medicare, and much, much more. He’s with us. And we hear from conservative think tank leader Arthur Brooks.
