Republican Senator Ben Sasse worries that Americans are fast losing the values of discipline and personal integrity. The Nebraskan — who likes to be known as “the last honest man in the GOP” — wants the American people to resist consumerism and recover a sense of meaning and personal integrity. Sasse outlines ways to achieve this in his new book “The Vanishing American Adult.” Senator Sasse joins us to explain his prescription for reviving civic culture. We’ll also get his take on the latest news from Capitol Hill.

Guests:
Ben Sasse, U.S. Senator from Nebraska; author, “The Vanishing American Adult: Our Coming-of-Age Crisis — and How to Rebuild a Culture of Self-Reliance”
