Alexander De Marco is an Owatonna attorney, and a committed Democrat.

Othelmo da Silva is an academic advisor at Rochester Community & Technical College, and a committed Republican.

We talked about the economy, jobs, outsourcing, bailouts, wealth redistribution, tax loopholes, corporate profits, consumer and federal debt, whether or not our federal representatives behave ethically, and more.
