Rep. Thomas Massie on Govt Surveillance, IRS Scandal, and D.C.'s Diet of Turd Sandwiches

"Rep. Thomas Massie on Govt Surveillance, IRS Scandal, and D.C.'s Diet of Turd Sandwiches" is the latest video from ReasonTV.

Despite only being in office for a year, Massie is one of the most outspoken members of Congress when it comes to reducing the size, scope, and spending of the federal government. A favorite of Tea Party types, Massie defies simple categorization on a typical left-right political spectrum.

Massie sat down with ReasonTV's Nick Gillespie to discuss government surveillance, marijuana and industrial hemp legalization, why the fiscal cliff deal was like a turd sandwich, taking Paul Krugman's economics class at MIT, being an insurgent within the Republican Party, the IRS scandal, why the Tea Party should stick to economics, and more.
