Kevin Miller Show 10/1/19
Kevin Miller begins the program by going over the latest allegations involving former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden. The president has demanded that the Bidens are corrupt. Kevin Miller explains a move that Congress is pondering during their Fall Recess. The Most-Hated Fee In Travel Isn't it annoying when you find a great price on a hotel room, but as you go to book, the total cost jumps much higher? Congress is looking to do something about that. Calling hotel resort fees, "the most-hated fee in travel," a new piece of bipartisan legislation would make sure that guests pay the price originally displayed, outside government-imposed taxes and fees.
Kevin Miller explains that the Hotel Advertising Transparency Act of 2019 co-sponsor, Democratic Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson of Texas, notes, "It is projected that in 2019, over three billion dollars in revenue alone will be collected from consumers due to these hidden fees." It might be a while before the bill comes to a vote, though. It's not scheduled for a hearing until next year, says Fox Business. Which other kinds of hidden fees have you found on your bills?
Kevin Miller shares his thoughts on traveling to and from Washington DC. He looks at the recent comments by Idaho politicians involving the funding of the Medicaid initiative. He takes calls from listeners who are very concerned about how they will be able to afford health care in the coming years.
