Other Think Tank Works

Donny and John also briefly talk about a retraction made by the Tax Policy Center. The organization recently released an analysis of the proposed tax reform - showing that it would negatively impact 1 out of every 8 tax filers.

Lastly, Donny and John talk about an article produced by the Illinois Policy Institute titled "Illinois General Assembly Passes Cursive Writing Mandate." Refraining from offering their opinion on the skill of cursive writing itself, Donny and John talk about why these types of mandates are bad.
