In today’s episode of The Heartland Daily Podcast, Illinois State Representative Tom Morrison joins Director of Communications Jim Lakely to talk about Heartland’s upcoming Benefit Dinner as well as the issues facing the state of Illinois.
Tom Morrison will be the emcee at the 31st Anniversary Benefit Dinner, which will be held at The Cotillion in Palatine Illinois on October 8th. The event will also feature speaker Angelo Codevilla and 2015 Liberty prize winner, Donald J. Devine, Ph.D.
Lakely and Morrison also talk about the immorality of a big and wasteful government. As Lakely explains, the government confiscates a portion of your work and effort in order to spend it on something as silly as custom, copper doors on the state capitol building.
