280. The Basics, Minimum Wage, Unlimited Stimulus, and the National Debt
It seems lately like people who say they are conservative are starting to stray on issues that used to be basic – minimum wage, stimulus payments, and the national debt to name a few.
The Heartland Institute's Donald Kendal, Jim Lakely, and Samantha Fillmore are joined by Isaac Orr in episode 280 of the In The Tank Podcast. It seems lately like people who say they are conservative are starting to stray on issues that used to be basic – minimum wage, stimulus payments, and the national debt to name a few. The ITT crew explores this idea, discuss what has caused this, and talks about the path to normalcy (if there is one). Also, they discuss a proposal for the Biden administration to create a “Reality Czar” to police fake news in society – a truly dystopian concept.
