Power Line, Ep. 93: Conservatism and Its Enemies

10/20/2018
More
A slight departure for the Power Line Show this week: Steve Hayward has lost his voice (bringing cheer to his critics and enemies), and couldn't do the author interview planned for this week, so John Hinderaker stepped in to host this episode with special guest. . .

Whiskey Politics, Ep. 148: John Cox: Rescuing California

10/20/2018
More
In the state of CA, a Republican wasn't supposed to get the second most votes in the Jungle Primary to be in the final two candidates for Governor. He wasn't supposed to beat a former LA Mayor, or the State Treasurer. He's not part of the political class and, wasn't born into a rich family. He is a successful Entrepreneur who doesn't need to be taking arrows in the most Leftist run state in the nation. So why is he doing this? John Cox, Candidate for California Governor, joins Dave Sussman...

Area 45: Is the Republican Party the “Party of Trump?” With Lanhee Chen

10/19/2018
More
If Democrats regain the House, it's not President Trump's fault - or so the President tells the media. His son accuses the Republican establishment of a "losing" mentality. As this administration approaches its midpoint, is the Republican Party the "Party of Trump", or more a temporary (and uneasy) alliance? Lanhee Chen, the David and Diane Steffy Research Fellow at the Hoover Institution, assesses the state of this political marriage. Did you like the show? Please rate, review, and...

10/19/2018

Heritage Explains: How the Left Is Lying About Tax Reform

10/19/2018
More
The Republican tax cuts are losing popularity among Americans, in spite of more money being placed in their pockets, and a booming economy that is creating opportunity for all.

This week, we talk with Adam Michel and Jordan Hess to correct the record, and provide listeners with ammunition to fight back against the left's narrative.

AEI Podcast Channel, Ep. 116: Our impending entitlement crisis, and what to do about it

10/19/2018
More
"The entitlement crisis is real, and it is worse than you think." So argue James Capretta and Yuval Levin in a recent cover story in The Weekly Standard. As they write, the CBO projects that under plausible assumptions, the government's cumulative debt will grow from 78 percent of GDP this year to 148 percent in 2038 and to 210 percent of GDP in 2048 -- and even a total repeal of last year's tax cuts won't come close to mitigating that rise. To discuss how deleterious this debt load will be...
