Our government needs to rein in social Security expenditures.

Yes, that’s a problem.

I admit that this podcast I just loved it even more, because I’m passionate about all the issues covered. First of all, I’ve loved american quarter horse since I was a child and mainly the reining horses, if someone is curious to know the name of the movement of the horse above, it is called “slide”. Besides that I’m a conservative person and I follow over the years the PragerU page on facebook and it’s been very useful to me. PS. Sorry about my writing mistakes.

Thank you, Julio. And the third thing, you practiced your Engilsh, which is very good, by the way! 😀

Hi Tim!
What’s the difference between rein in and put a lid on something?

They are similar expressions, Evalgney. “Put a lid on something” means to control in the sense of not letting it get “out of hand” (fora de controle). Whereas, “rein in” means to “pull back” and maybe even cut a little.
