Tonight on the show, Lou is joined by Adrian Moore from the Reason Foundation. They talk about the $50 MILLION discrepancy in the city’s financial paperwork. How does a city recover from something like that?

Then, Los Angeles approved a minimum wage hike to $15 by the year 2020. In Seattle, businesses fled the city. What would happen in LA? And how would this affect the welfare system in California?

After that, they discuss Iraq and the U.S. strategy there. Ramadi fell to ISIS this week, and Iraqi forces left dozens of U.S. vehicles there, including tanks and armored personnel carriers. Should we be considering a change of strategy?
