    The Politically Messy Road to Carbon Dioxide Limits (Guest: Todd Myers)

    The Politically Messy Road to Carbon Dioxide Limits (Guest: Todd Myers)

    Fearing higher energy prices, voters in Washington state have twice rejected initiatives that would impose limits on fossil fuel use. Ignoring the majority of voters' wishes, Democrats who control the legislature imposed a carbon dioxide cap-and-trade plan contingent on an increase in the gas tax (which would have to be passed by a supermajority). This was part of a grand bargain to get moderate Democrats to sign onto legislation they had previously rejected. Gov. Inslee (D), in a potentially unconstitutional manner, line-item vetoed the tax. The law would limit carbon dioxide emissions and raise energy prices, but it may all be undone by the courts.

    The Heartland Institute Safeguards Your Individual Freedoms (Guest: H. Sterling Burnett)

    The Heartland Institute Safeguards Your Individual Freedoms (Guest: H. Sterling Burnett)

    The government The Founding Fathers envisioned was a force for good. Its limited role was to protect life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. If alive today, they would balk at what our government has become. Rampant government intervention seen today skews markets and limits the freedom of the individual.

    H. Sterling Burnett joins the Great Talks With podcast to describe how The Heartland Institute discovers, develops, and promotes free-market solutions to social and economic problems; fighting back against big government.

    Find out how the free market has helped accelerate the economic development of western democracies in this podcast.

Alternate News

I learn so much from Heartland Daily Podcasts. I consider it my source for information not carried by MSM. I hope others will give it a try to balance out what they're hearing and reading in MSM. I rely on Heartland for news on “Climate Change” information/disinformation, education, healthcare.

Great idea for a show...

...perfectly executed

Jim Lakely ,

Best "think tank" podcast out there

Heartland has been doing this for years, so it's not a surprise that the podcast is so professionaly produced and interesting for those who care about policy a lot more than politics. It's always a good discussion, and you learn a lot.
