Vodcast: Representative Zach Wamp

In this week’s video highlights of “America’s Business with Mike Hambrick,” we hear from Rep. Zach Wamp (R-TN), an outspoken advocate of expanding nuclear energy in the United States as part of a multifaceted strategy of achieving energy security. Wamp argues:

“Let’s lead on this issue. Let’s advance nuclear, let’s solve the problems of the world. Let’s build energy technologies out of this country and export them to the world. Frankly, let’s lead on energy in the next 20 years the same way we lead on information in the last 20 years and we will preserve our way of life. But it means technology, not regulation.”

Wamp also has some sharp criticisms for members of Congress who respond to America’s energy challenges with the heavy hand of government, taxation and regulation.

In our second segment, we hear from Garrett Graff, author of The First Campaign, a look at how new technologies have reshaped the world of campaigning, politics and policy.
