For this podcast, we engage Grover Norquist from Americans for Tax Reform.  We cover Grover's "Taxpayer Protection Pledge":  who's signed it, who hasn't, and who did the best job while in office supporting the prinicples.  According to ATR, "Politicians often run for office saying they won't raise taxes, but then quickly turn their backs on the taxpayer. The idea of the Pledge is simple enough: Make them put their no-new-taxes rhetoric in writing."  From Clinton to Trump to Bush, we track down what the candidates have said and see if they make sense!  Take a listen and tell us what you think.  Please subscribe, rate and review the show!

For our second show on Engage, we turn to good friend and astute political analyst Greg Valliere from Potomac Research in Washington, D.C.  We delve into the developing 2016 Presidential race theme of reject whatever candidate the party appears to be supporting.  Whether it's Hillary Clinton or Jeb Bush, voters are reaching out to Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders to let party leaders know they don't like the current lineup.  Greg and I cover this and who may be waiting in the wings to jump into the race and make it a lot more interesting.  Please subscribe, rate and review Engage with Andy Busch to make it your show, covering what you want and filtering out the media noise!
