We opened the show with the state budget. The short version is Republicans think they can earn Democrats favor by spending more, and funding more programs for typical democrat voters. They price tag on the budget is higher than either chamber initially agreed to. And while the budget does include tax cuts, the cuts don’t take effect until the year 2019. Do you know how much can happen in between now and then?
Last week we discussed the fact that Illinois might file for bankruptcy. The state is running a deficit of 6 million and has been served papers requiring the state to pay outstanding bills. It seems, however, that Illinois is not the only state which is struggling to make ends meet. Four other states are being overtaken by their liabilities.
We gave an update on the Climate Change threat. We know that most of the climate change policies are socialism by another name by transferring individual power to institutions. A piece from Ben Santer who was a leading advocate for climate change wrote about why the climate conditions do not match the predicted models. It seems the models overestimated in large part what we actually see happening.
We brought our discussion to a national level and talked about Trump loyalty. Since the election Trumps popularity has not withered. If you liked him before you are more than likely to still support him. If you hated him before the election, your disdain has only grown.
