Plain Talk about Government — Podcast May 6, 2013

What Government Is Good for: More Than the Government-Bashers Would Have You Believe. Sedona City Councilor Jessica Williamson and Democratic Perspective editor Gary LaMaster join co-hosts Mike Cosentino and Steve Williamson for a discussion of the benefits of government.
