Featured Work of the Week

In the World of Think Tankery
Donny and John talk about an article authored by Curtis Dubay from the Heritage Foundation titled “Goodlatte’s Internet Sales Tax Plan Is Better, but Still Falls Short.” John explains why Goodlatte’s plan is an improvement over the Marketplace Fairness Act, and where it falls short.
Next, they talk about an article produced by the Pacific Research Institute titled “Stop Squandering California’s Energy Resources.” In the context of California shuttering its only nuclear power plant, this article outlines all the missteps made by California which has resulted in a growing energy crisis in the state.
