As the popular anchor of CNBC's daily news show Power Lunch, Michelle Caruso-Cabrera puts a new spin on conservatism. Now, in You Know I'm Right, Caruso-Cabrera presents a modern and smart approach to correcting the economic woes of the nation. Denouncing the hypocrites, she calls out the radicals on both sides of the spectrum who have frustrated voters and left fiscally conservative but socially liberal Americans feeling like a people without a party.
Caruso-Cabrera maintains that by focusing on socially invasive policies, our country has lost its course. The answer is less government, not more; less spending, not more; and getting the government to stay out of our pocketbooks and out of our private lives.
You Know I'm Right addresses the problems created by government overreach and speaks to the minds and hearts of nostalgic Republicans - those who believe in the strategy and approach used by Ronald Reagan. But it will also appeal to Clinton-era Democrats frustrated by the current level of exorbitant spending and excessive interference in the economy. Citing faults with both political parties, Caruso-Cabrera puts a magnifying glass on government structure, health care, and education, underscoring how we have gone wrong and, more important, where we need to go for a secure and prosperous future.
I must give Ms Caruso-Cabrera a lot of credit, she does present compelling arguments. I've actually gone back to do further research on several of her points for further clarity within my own mind as well as I just don't take an author's word. This is a book worth reading especially if you tend to stick with a political party "because". Worth the time.

What did you like best about this story?
Michelle is truly unbiased. There are Democrats she respects, and there are Republicans she respects, and there are certain ideals from both parties that she believes in. She is truly independent, and it's very refreshing. Michelle is very bright, and I've been recommending her book to all of my friends. -Chet
