About this Episode

In a special bonus episode, Americans for Tax Reform President Grover Norquist joins the show to recap the various state-level tax cut referendums that won big on Election Day. From Illinois to Colorado, blue-state voters rejected tax hikes even as they backed Joe Biden in wide margins. What can we take away from these state-level victories for the national debate?

So, too, we break down what Biden's tax hikes would mean for the economy. Is it true that he would only raise taxes on "the rich?" What about the Obamacare taxes? And who really bears the burden of corporate tax hikes?

Then, we discuss President Trump's strong record on tax cuts and deregulation. To what extent were the benefits undercut by harmful tariffs and "Trade War" fallout?

Finally, we analyze the right-of-center debate over a "carbon tax" to address climate change. Is it justifiable from a conservative perspective to address a negative environmental externality? Or are there free-market solutions?
