Now that the elections have settled, Washington, D.C., has returned right where it left off -- mired in gridlock. Some things never change. One person who is all about change, however, is NAFCU's Vice President of Legislative Affairs Brad Thaler. Brad is one of the credit union industry's top lobbyists and he works hard at getting the credit union voice heard on Capitol Hill. He has a number of big issues that he needs to push in 2013 and beyond: continue tax exemption and raising MBL being a couple of biggies.
To get a behind-the-scenes look at his lobbyist job, we invited Brad on the show to discuss the major credit union issues he advocates on a daily basis. We also talked about how the elections will impact credit unions over the next few years -- negative or positive. And, of course, we had to chat about the mounting "fiscal cliff" that seems to have everybody's attention right now. Brad gives us the inside scoop on that issue and much more. Enjoy the program!
