Heard on the Hill covers Monday’s leak of an early draft of the Supreme Court’s majority opinion on the upcoming Roe v. Wade case – and the security, legal, and political implications of both the leak and the ultimate decision. Al Jackson brings us his Defense Update, and features news on the Administration’s plans impacting Arizona’s Davis-Monthan Air Force Base. Ramona Lessen monitored Tuesday’s hearing before the Senate Armed Services Subcommittee on Cybersecurity on Artificial Intelligence Applications to Cyberspace Operations.

I just watched Congressman Erik Paulsen speak with Kevin Hassett for Total Spectrum Spotlight 2.0. As you may know, Mr. Hassett was the Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisors in the Trump Administration. He was also the economic advisor to the President George W. Bush’s 2004 campaign, Senator John McCain’s 2008 Presidential campaign, and Mitt Romney’s 2012 campaign.

Congressman Paulsen’s interview with Kevin Hassett covered a lot of economic ground. For example, Erik asked him:

  1. What is America’s REAL inflation rate?
  2. How did inflation get back into our economy?
  3. Will we have a ‘soft landing’ and how deep will the recession be?

We’ll coordinate with the Arizona Chamber to determine the exact date we will release this interview. One thing is for sure - if you are at all interested in or
impacted by the economy, watching this interview is a must.
