The Heartland Institute's Donald Kendal, Jim Lakely, Justin Haskins, and Chris Talgo present episode 358 of the In The Tank Podcast. Donald Trump’s residence was raided by the FBI this week. We are still not exactly clear as to the reasoning behind the raid. Also, the Inflation Reduction Act looks like it is real close to becoming law, which along with raising taxes, pushing further down the path of unreliable energy, and doing absolutely nothing to reduce inflation, will increase the power of the IRS. PRIMARY TOPIC – TRUMP RAIDED BY THE FBI (Video) – Chuck Schumer “Six Ways From Sunday” quote AP News - FBI’s search of Trump’s Florida estate: Why now? The Hill - Justice Department should have subpoenaed documents, not raided Trump’s home The Federalist - FBI’s Trump Raid Reinforces Deep-State G-Men As The Bad Guys SECONDARY TOPIC – INFLATION REDUCTION ACT Forbes - The Inflation Reduction Act Unleashes A Tougher IRS Fox News - Inflation Reduction Act 'a mess' after billionaire tax hike was removed, AOC's constituents sound off CNBC - Consumer prices rose 8.5% in July, less than expected as inflation pressures ease a bit

Heartland Institute President James Taylor was a guest on Tipping Point on OANN the other day. He was asked to comment on what host Kara McKinney called a "clown show" of energy policy pushed by President Biden and the Democrats in Washington. Michigan Sen. Debbie Stabenow spoke excitedly about driving an electric car and not worrying about gas prices. Taylor called that a "clown car" and offered a lot of substantive analysis of our wrong-headed energy policies in this quick hit.
