AUDIO SOUND BITE: Government Solutions vs Personal Responsibility

President Obama was talking jobs and education in Warrensburg this week. At the same time, unemployment in Missouri’s urban core areas remains higher than the national average.

Some call that a failure of government. According to one of the founders of a Missouri-based group for black conservatives, though, there’s more to it than that. Christopher Arps thinks a lack of personal responsibility is adding to problems for many who need work in urban areas.

That’s from Arps’ appearance on “Missouri Viewpoints.” While he thinks there is a need for government training programs and education reform, he says solutions should include less government and more from the private sector. Arps is a founder of Move On Up.
