Heartland’s Donald Kendal, and Justin Haskins are joined by Isaac Orr in episode #188 of the In The Tank Podcast. This weekly podcast features (as always) interviews, debates, and roundtable discussions that explore the work of think tanks across the country. The show is available for download as part of the Heartland Daily Podcast every Friday. Today’s episode features work from the Heritage Foundation, The Heartland Institute, and more.
In the first segment, Justin Haskins gives us a play-by-play of his ordeal with Facebook. Facebook banned Justin‘s ad account for publishing an anti-socialism video on the platform. After months of appeals, Facebook continued to stand by their decision. It was not until Justin published an article describing the situation on FoxNews.com that they reversed their decision and reinstated Justin’s account.
In the next segment, the trio tackles Senator Elizabeth Warren’s college debt relief plan. Using a Heritage Foundation article, titled “Elizabeth Warren’s Debt ‘Cancellation’ Plan Would Make College More Expensive, Not Less,” as a leaping off point, they dissect this plan and discuss why plans like this are even taken seriously.
Last, they talk about a new law passed in Washington that would force middle school children to use booster seats if they are too short.
