Jason reminds us about the upcoming Meet the Masters of Income Property Live Event in lovely Irvine California. A special inventory of properties is being withheld from JasonHartman.com so attendees can purchase vetted income properties at the event. Jason’s guest on today’s podcast is Tom Schatz. Mr. Schatz is the President of The not-for-profit Citizens Against Government Waste (CAGW) and it’s lobbying affiliate, Council for Citizens Against Government Waste (CAGW). The group publishes the annual Congressional Pig Book to highlight areas where Congress mismanaged taxpayer dollars in the previous year. Jason immediately made a donation to this organization after the interview and if you care about holding Congress members accountable, maybe you should too.
