"On evicting people who are unable to pay their rent. But that policy has significant economic implications You're on. Brooke is chairman of the board of directors of the Ion Rand Institute. He is here to discuss the impact of the eviction moratorium. Iran. Welcome to American radio journal Iran to set the stage here tell us what the president has done and what we have seen. States like California have done when it comes to moratoriums on evictions and this for people who are renting houses, apartments, condos, whatever Congress was actually first act on this. We saw this in the stimulus. Bill McKay, Zach. Where there was a moratorium on affection. So if you didn't pay your rent, landlords could not effect too. And then when that expired, many states standard that's about 14 states, including California basically extended that into next year, and what the president has done is he's expanded at nationwide. He's expanded after all, 50 states. And basically what it says. It says. If you don't pay your rent if you're renting and don't pay your rent under the landlord cannot evict you. In other words, he cannot. There's no recourse against you. If you don't pay your rent now. Oh, that vent. Theoretically, that is win. The moratorium expires January 1st. You will still owe that rent. And at that point, theoretically, evictions could happen. But the idea here is on this was done and the kind of power public health power is the idea is we don't want to create More homeless people We don't know people out doing in the middle of endemic they'll create even more problems and therefore we are making it impossible to evict a rent based on your inability to pay the rent. Of course, nobody wants to see people kicked out of their house or their apartment, especially in the midst of a pandemic. However, let's talk about the flip side of that coin Iran and that is from the perspective of the landlord. Now the term landlord in and of itself makes people think of somebody rolling in money, and they're just preying on the less fortunate. Are not a lot of times the landlord's small business people who also have bills to pay because I would assume that the electric bill the heating bill, etcetera doesn't go away even if they're not getting rent and where a mortgage payment..

"Has been elsewhere. But waiting in the wings are faith based, particularly evangelical voters, who often play a decisive role. Timothy Head is executive director of the Faith and Freedom Coalition. And he is here to discuss the impact of faith based voters on this year's election. Tim Welcome back to American Radio Journal. Tim Let's talk about the role of evangelical voters in this upcoming presidential election. There's been a lot of chatter about various blocks of voters on the left and evangelicals. Which in many past elections were talked about extensively a lot less. So this year before we talk about the size and roll off such voters tell us what we mean by the term evangelical voter. Good questions of the evangelical moniker is actually kind of a political science term that political scientists and That of miners if you will have used for probably 40 years, and it's ah, it's used to describe for the most part Protestant Christians in America. And then with even within Protestantism, they're certain denominations these days that some refer to as mainline Protestants and then others that that a lot of theological sociological studies referred to as evangelicals, so they're slightly more there more on the on the conservative orthodoxy and of the theological Christian Perspective, so Southern Baptist would be the largest example of that in the country, but a number of other sort of Orthodox conservative Protestant churches. If we were to add together the evangelical Christians along with as you mentioned mainline process and also Catholics, the religious vote overall in past elections, how important has that vote bin? You could actually argue. It's basically the whole shooting match. So in the last last election and 2016 the presidential election, there were the entire electorate, not the Republican electorate the entire electorate. About 27% of the electorate was self identified. Evangelical and then another. 9% were self identified. Roman Catholic. So for a total of a little over 36% of the entire electorate, they were self described Faith based voters and Donald Trump got 81% of those, according Tio Faith and Freedom Coalition. Zaitsev polling. In terms of issues to him that animate this particular part of the electorate. What sort of values do they placed the highest priority on and which candidate is talking more to those values? Well, the number one motivating issues for for evangelicals and faithful Catholics these days is the life questions. So why don't we talk about pro life candidate? Really? In terms of his his policies. Now there really isn't a whole lot of argument that Donald Trump has established himself. Probably the most pro life candidate and actual officeholder in the history of of American politics since 1973 and you have been a row versus Wade President Biden historically if you rewind several years now, hey, actually was, I would consider him a pro life moderate Democrats. Until probably the nineties, when he started to drift on at this point, I think it's it's a bit of a farce to consider him a pro life, other issues that that are certainly resonate among faithful. Voters include religious liberty. Which historically has been more of an international issue in terms of persecuted Christians were persecuted people of faith across the world, but unfortunately that's becoming more Warner relevant for us here at home. Bursting in churches, you know, being shut down our ostracised by even even here now, recent situations in California and Burke and Birmingham, Alabama, in Tampa, Florida, where churches were pastors have been arrested. Her church is closed. Because of not abiding sufficiently distancing rules, etcetera. Other issues might include human trafficking certainly issues related to Israel. Are paramount issues for a lot of AA lot of faith based voters. There's a bit of a wide panoply of issues that Christians pay attention to, but they tend to center on biblically. Fell down principles that really are near and dear to so many of us. An issue that we see are emerging as perhaps what's going to be the pivotal issue in this election, with all the violence in the rioting and looting and the destruction that's taking place in Democrat controlled cities around the country. The whole issue of law and order. In fact, the issue of personal safety has become front and center. Do you see this as an issue that is going to rise up on the list of priorities for faith based voters as well? Absolutely even in our own. We've been. We've been polling on doing surveys as we go house to house across the country for Faith and freedom Coalition and the economies of the recovery from the recession induced via coded restrictions. His number one and number two is is basically a return to lawn order into a civil society, so I think it's absolutely front and center, but not only are evangelical And Catholic voters interested in this, But honestly, I think you're even singing now moderate or UN performing voters or even becoming animated by this that otherwise might not have been voted. As you mentioned, there's a large segment of the electorate that identifies self identify as evangelical or faith based voters. So what about turnout him? Even if somebody identifies is such a voter, these issues are important. They are issues that a president speaks to. People don't show up at the polls there. Vote doesn't count. As with the efforts on the left. Is there an effort going on to get these voters to the polls here? Either to the polls in November or by all the many male in validating that's going to be taking place? Is there an organized effort to get these folks to have their votes count? They're absolutely so There are a number of organizations that are focused now on faith based voters. And at this point, a lot of people consider Faith and freedom Coalition to be the preeminent effort for that, so we've continued. To engage Christians across the country and an escalating level. Every single election cycle on this will be the largest of are almost 12 years of existence. So we are just now surpassing one million doors that are our volunteers across the country have visited in person. We will ultimately visit five million households in person across the country. And eventually we will touch. We'll have about 225 million voter contact through a range of medium. So so we're strongly educating and urging people of faith across the country to get out and have always heard. We have been talking with Tim head who is executive director of the Faith and Freedom Coalition. So you've told us a bit about what the Faith and freedom coalition is doing relative to this election. But give us an overview as to what the Faith and freedom coalition is and what you do. But we like to say that that our role is to give Christians a voice in government. So whether that is in state houses or in Washington, D. C. In Congress, lobbying for issues related to life, the family to religious liberty to Israel. The other issues that air Quarto, our faith or on the streets of America, educating people of faith and churches on where candidates stand on these critical issues we exist to educate and to energize people of faith to be effective citizens. And where can folks go on the Web to learn more? You can learn more about us at www dot.

"College has an American radio journal commentary. I'm Lohman, Henry and welcome to American radio journal until a few days ago. President Trump said efforts to negotiate a new U S China trade agreement were going well, but the talks have bogged down, and the president is threatening new action against Chinese imports here to sort through all of this is Dan Griswold. Who is a senior research fellow at the Mercatus center at George Mason University. Dan, welcome back to American radio journal. Dan, before we get into where things stand, these U S, China trade talks to begin with why are we engaged in talks with China? What have some of the problems been, and what are they discussing some of our complaints against China go back a long way that they don't sufficiently protect intellectual property in China that Chinese agents, including the government are actually. Stealing intellectual property, cyber theft around the world that they have restrictions on foreign investment in China that requires US companies engaged in joint ventures to, to share their technology. And then the fear is and often the case that technology gets used by the Chinese company. There's also fear that China is buying up a US technology companies, and then sending the technology back to China. And there there's truth to all of this, what the Trump administration has done is ramped up the pressure on China and the temperature on this by a number of degrees. We've been engaged in these talks. And in the background of the talks starting last summer. The US started to impose duties on imports from China, and this was under a section of US trade law called section three. Oh, one which involves bringing cases against countries that are trading unfairly or discriminating against the United States with the potential to us tariffs. The talks as the president himself said up until fairly recently, he said they were going, very, very well, high level meetings, apparently, there was progress on on these issues, I, I out lined, but for reasons that are still unclear the US trade team led by a US trade Representative Bob lighthizer has said the Chinese were walking back some of their commitments. And so the president as he often does tweet it out, his views on Sunday, saying, we were going to start reimposing higher duties on literally hundreds of billions of dollars of imports from China and that's where we stand right now as we look at these import duties and tariffs that have been put on in the past, what, what is the recent history been there, Dan, have they been relatively low have they've been bouncing around, if you look back over the last four years, what is the trend line been before President Trump? They were pretty limited. President obama. Put some tariffs on tires imported tires from China. And those had a mixed effect that we ended up importing tires from other places didn't really save any jobs. But Americans paid more for, for their tires, just kind of aimed at specific products from China, we use the anti-dumping log recipe against imports from China, but no president in the history of our trading with China for the last forty years has imposed these kind of blanket tariffs. So to give you an idea of the magnitude we import about five hundred billion dollars worth of goods from China each year. The president started this action with tariffs on fifty billion dollars worth of Chinese goods. And then it goes terrorists word about twenty five percent. Then the Chinese retaliate it, which often happens against US exports. That's where the tariffs against US soybean exports came in and other US exports. Then President Trump up the ante even more by putting first ten percent tariffs on another two hundred billion dollars worth of imports from China and then threatening to go up to twenty five percent. And that's what he's gonna do this Friday, if there isn't new developments he's going to ramp those tariffs up to twenty five percent. On the next two hundred billion dollars. So basically, we've got we're about to have twenty five percent tariffs on half of our imports from China the economic effect. The economists are unanimous on this. The cost is paid overwhelmingly by the American people. We pay higher prices for consumer goods from China. US companies pay higher prices on parts and other components from China, this reduces, real wages raises costs for American producers. And then, of course, you have the retaliation, which is cost US exporters tens of billions of dollars of sales. So there's been a lot of pain in China and the United States so far no gain if we look back over the last few months, Dan, we have had just the assume NAMI of good economic news. We have unemployment low inflation's under control interest rates are fairly stable, the economy by all measures is just chugging along. So, yeah, why do this now I guess you go back to the old saying if it ain't broke, don't fix. It doesn't this sort of knock us off the positive track that we've been on that. That's a good way to put it. Why, why would the president do this when the economy is, is doing so well one argument he has as well. We can afford to do it, right. The economy's doing. Well, we can we can give up some growth of a little bit of growth for greater game in the future. I think that's a risky calculation. The economy is growing despite the tariffs, not be because of them, they're having a detrimental effect on the farm sector bankruptcies in the midwest are reaching record. Highs and tariffs are part of the story. These retaliatory tariffs and loss markets abroad, US, manufacturing firms that depend on that we have the steel tariffs, of course adding to the pain in the manufacturing sector. It's an interesting thing you don't want to read too much into month by month figures but the last. Couple of months manufacturing jobs, have actually decreased while overall jobs have grown manufacturing jobs. If decreased that may be an indication that the pain from the tariffs are starting to spread in the manufacturing sector. So there's no good time to put these sorts of tariffs on, but this isn't helping the economy growing because of tax reform, because of deregulation because of growth picking up a broad, this is working against the president's goals of invigorating the economy. So what are the options instead of putting on tariffs? The president wants to put pressure on the Chinese to adhere to the agreements. They've already made tried to bring this trade agreement to a favourable conclusion, what else could he do better way than these blanket tariffs that are leaving a lot of collateral damage. The president has some important tools one we can bring cases in the WTO. We have successfully brought more than twenty cases against China in the WTO and they've moved in a market. Foreign direction in virtually every case we should be working with our allies rather than tag them over stealing autos to bring more cases against China. We can bring specific legal action against the bad actors in China and our department of Justice has done this as well. We could file cases indictments against specific companies. You're seeing some of the action against the Chinese technology company and other individuals. That's the right way. Go, it punishes the specific actors rather than innocent consumers here in the United States, we also have an agency in the federal government called the committee on foreign investment in the United States. If the Chinese are buying a US company, and if that raises national security questions, the safest can step in and in bar, the transactions, and we have used that in the past. There's lots of things we can do and have done to address the specific problem. We have been talking with Dan Griswold, who is a senior research fellow at the Mercatus center at George Mason, University, and Dan rea we have you on. We'd like you to tell us a little bit about the.

"I'm Lohman Henry and welcome to American radio journal Howard Schultz, the former CEO of Starbucks Royal the political waters when he announced he is considering a run for the presidency as an independent, but could he end up as the nominee of the libertarian party? Eric bay of reason magazine talks with Matt Welsh about the possibility. Eric Howard Schultz, better known as the CEO of Starbucks. He wants to run for president. But he doesn't want to run as a Republican or a democrat, and quite frankly who can blame him, but that is stirring, some speculation that he could end up possibly running on the libertarian party ticket in twenty twenty. Hi, folks, I'm Eric Bain with reason magazine, and you're listening to American radio journal, my guest today is Matt Welsh she's an editor at large with reason. And he's been following all this intrigue surrounding the libertarian party as it heads into twenty twenty. It's the only other party besides the two big ones. That will have ballot access in all fifty states for the next election. Now, most of that intrigue has to do with whether Bill weld who was the party's VP candidate in two thousand sixteen whether he's gonna jump ship to become a Republican again. But Matt has also been reading some of the tea leaves about Howard Schulz's presidential run. And he joins us on the phone now from Brooklyn New York to discuss that Matt thanks for taking some time. It'd be thanks for having me. So about let's start off by talking a little bit about Schultz in this this perspective run for the Oval Office. And and maybe let's start with why he might appeal to libertarian voters heading into twenty twenty. Well, like, whoever the libertarian party candidate will be on the of course, John McAfee Schultz is four grounding in his campaign the national debt saying, look, we're twenty trillion dollars in debt. This is crazy. What's wrong with you people on the libertarian candidate? We'll do that like the libertarian party. He's running against, you know, the duopoly, and and the extreme right and extreme left or however, you wanna put it and appealing to. Kind of an independent minded group and the two sides have something each other want, which is to say it became partisan have valid access in all fifty states district of Columbia most likely, and that's an expensive proposition for an individual to have.

"And it also gives you access to all previous editions of the reports you can see not only where states rank in two thousand nineteen but all of the last eleven editions of the report Jonathan Williams who is co author of rich dates poor states. Also chief? Economist and vice president of the center for state fiscal reform at Alec Jonathan. Thank you for being with us, always great to be with you, my friend. And now we go to the offices of the club for growth where Scott Parkinson has been watching all the activity on Capitol Hill, and it has been a busy time. Scott good to have you here. Thanks for having me. Let's talk about something that happened over the last week or so and is going to become a major issue through the spring and into the summer, and this has to do with the size of the federal debt and the debt limit. What was the big milestone for the first time in US history? The national debt officially past twenty two trillion dollars, and that's historic because if you look back to when President Bush was leaving office the debt limit had barely past ten trillion. So since the beginning of the two thousand nine we've added twelve trillion dollars to the national debt, and we're right back in the middle of. Another trillion dollar deficit for this fiscal year as we head into March. And then later this summer explain for our listeners, Scott, why this whole debt limit issue is not only important, but we sort of are going to be at a critical juncture once again, are we not? Yeah. We are what happens in March is the debt limit suspension is officially expired, and we will see the US treasury department go through what is called extraordinary measures where they can sell off assets. And find ways to make sure that there's no default on the national debt the period of extraordinary measures can normally lasts several months. So we're expecting the debt. Limit fight to really become a big issue in June and July this summer what I think you'll see is the democrat house of representatives passed a budget resolution that will include a version of what's known as. Has to get rule and that allows the debt limit to be increased by the amount of the deficit that the budget provides for all that would be necessary after passage of the budget resolution would be for the Senate to take that up and tack it onto some hidden legislation, and what's known as a budget teamer and pass the debt limit that fashion. So what we're concerned about here is that there's really no focus on the spending here in Washington, we've been really irresponsible with the tax payers money, and we need to have a real serious discussion about what the future of our economy looks like if we keep stacking on trillions and trillions of dollars to the national debt. Speaking of tacking on those trillions and trillions of dollars. Scott this exponential increase in the federal debt, and the acceleration of it at what point do we simply run out of the ability to borrow money in those quantities. He's somewhere. There's got to be a finite number of dollars available. Certainly the credit agencies are paying attention to the amount of revenue that the treasury department. Annually collects we're at historic levels of revenue. So that's a good thing. If you're concerned about how much we're bringing in and the growth of the economy, but on the other side, we continue to spend way more than we actually have. So there needs to be fiscal restraint and a refocus on the spending side of the budget ledger. I think that we're nearing a point where the credit agencies could warn about another credit downgrade like we saw in two thousand eleven we had a triple a rating that had been downgraded for the first time in US history about eight years ago, and we're certainly back in a similar situation here where I think everybody should be concerned American radio journal is heard on public affairs minded radio stations all across the country, including our newest affiliate.

"Welcome to American radio journal each year, the American legislative exchange council or Alec publishes a report on policies related to economic competitiveness in the fifty states. Jonathan Williams is chief economist at Alec and he is vice president of the center for state fiscal reform. He has co author of rich dates poor states. And he is here. Now to talk about this year's report. Jonathan welcome back to American radio journal Jonathan before we start talking about the findings of the rich dates poor states report, tell us a little bit about the report. What is it? How did he get started? And what are you researching and finding well this reports now been around since two thousand seven and art Laffer, of course, of Ronald Reagan famous economic advisor and Stephen Moore, and I put it together for these more than a decade now. To give state legislators and concerned citizens across the country a way to measure their state to hell it ranks economically both in how it's done over the last decade as well. As more importantly where that state is headed and how competitive that those that states policies are for future job creation and economic growth, and what we've really found is over these now ten twelve years that we've been putting together the report, not only are states state, lawmakers paying attention and listening to the findings of the report is that the states have followed the framework becoming more free market, lower tax, more freedom oriented as estate are seeing enjoying the economic results of those actions, while the states on the other side of the spectrum that have been following the tax and spend approach continue to have major problems economically. And as you develop the report, what sort of factors go into it. We have fifteen different factors that we measure for states. And while you can Lohman see probably a thousand different things that you could rank stateside, and we see all these rankings out there today, we chose these fifteen for a couple of big reasons. First of all, we know that these fifteen such as taxes and labor policy and regulation are things that matter directly to the bottom line of a state to the economic competitiveness in the state. We know this from the academic research from small business implant from the long tenure research of Arthur Laffer, but more importantly, perhaps even and we see all these rankings that measure things that are very very difficult to actually put a price tag on things like quality of life for weather things. Like that. Now, while they matter for people, we know that state legislators in the fifty state, capitals only can control public policy, and so that's why everything that we measure enrich states poor states. We know has a proven impact on economic competitiveness. But also there are things that stay. Legislators have direct control over as part of their legislative duties you of course, have been doing this as you've pointed out for a number of years now, and let's take a look at your most latest report, which of course, encompasses two thousand eighteen what were the important developments that you noticed in two thousand eighteen relative to where the states were a year or two earlier one of the big things that we've noticed in the last year and just how good a picture things are now at the state legislative level for budgets and economics. We have seen in this dude a couple of different things, but because of the economic recovery since the start of the Trump administration, and because of many many good policies such as tax cuts and regulatory relief coming out of Washington DC, very few states are facing budget problems. Since is a big reversal from just a couple of years ago woman where we saw the majority of states facing red ink in some cases during the very slow economic recovery after nine after. Two thousand eight and the Obama years and this has been a huge turnaround. Now where we saw only about a handful of states starting out two thousand nineteen with the budget deficit, and what that's meant is. There's been a lot of discussions about tax cuts. There's been a lot of discussions about how to make states more competitive. But on the other side, those that would like to spend all those extra dollars and take advantage of this windfall. They would like to spend it on lots of different projects. And so that's really been one of the big debates across state capitals in the last year. And we talk about it in depth in the first chapter of rich states. Poor states is how federal tax reform has impacted the states. And now there's this existential debate over whether you spend the extra money or whether you give it back to hardworking taxpayers as I think everyone that was involved with the federal tax cuts in job. Jack would like to see as we look at the impact of the fact that Jonathan the states have more money available because of the federal tax cuts and jobs act. And the fact that people are actually getting to. Keep more of their money as we look at that have any states made definitive decisions yet as to what they are going to do with the additional revenue that we see coming into many state coffers, or is it all still in the discussion stage. Well, certainly we've seen some fantastic wins for the free market side in the states over the last twelve months after the tax cuts and jobs act, and what it meant was for the states that have income taxes they generally start with federal adjusted gross income as well. And what that net was when the federal tax base was broadened, the states had all this extra money. And what we saw was in the in the first few months of two thousand eighteen even we saw several states in act historic tax relief and tax reform efforts of their own such as Iowa and Missouri, bordering states. That know what it means to become more competitive. We saw Idaho. We sat Georgia states across the country have utilized this really once in a generation opportunity of having these extra dollars that were unbudgeted, which is so. Important and their ongoing. So they had these dollars sitting there, and they use them to buy down personal and corporate income tax rates do enhanced standard deductions personal exemptions things to reduce their tax burden and make their tax codes more competitive. So that was the I think the untold story federal tax reform. We know the benefits what it meant at the federal level, but outside of the beltway says nobody really covers state capitals anymore when it comes to the mainstream media, we have all of these great market success stories and the big beneficiaries. Of course, Lohman are the hardworking men and women the tax payers are those states that will see a much different and much lower tax burden in the years ahead, and Jonathan one of the components of the rich states. Poor states report is you do an index, and you rank states according to economic competitiveness. Everybody loves a horse race. So tell us who were the top five top ten what states are doing the best in your ranking? Well, this has been a predictable story for some time now limited at least at the top of the rankings in that state of Utah's been estate that has been. Number one for all eleven editions of rich states, poor states. They were recently joined in the top by Idaho state that I mentioned just recently the state that leverage federal tax reform and had their biggest tax cuts in twenty five years on income taxes in this last year, Indiana state that was middle of the road. Just a few maybe five years ago. Now is that number three North Dakota in Arizona round out the top five, but these are states that are serious about keeping costs down keeping business environments. Good in as a result. They've seen some very good economic outcomes in terms of in migration job creation and wage growth. Conversely, let's take a look at the bottom five or six days. Well, probably not a lot of surprises on the bottom of this list. Either New York fiftieth out of fifty has been that way for nearly every edition of rich states, poor states. And now even in recent weeks for you've had governor Andrew Cuomo complained that they've had this out-migration of people and businesses out of the state. Even Andrew Cuomo is now realizing I think New York is a high cost place to do business. And so that's not a surprise not being a right to work state having some of the highest corporate and personal income taxes. Not to mention property in sales in America, Vermont Bernie Sanders home has been at three forty nine for many of our years of our report. But one thing interesting to note Lohman about Vermont is day, even cut taxes just last year because of the surplus revenues that were sitting there from the federal tax cuts and jobs act. So it wasn't just a red state nominee and even Bernie Sanders. Remind us that opportunity to cut income taxes this last year, and then we have Illinois, California, New jersey, New Jersey, of course, is a state that will probably be falling further in the rankings is just this last week or two we saw governor Phil Murphy, a fifteen dollars an hour. Minimum wage Bill into law, making New Jersey even more expensive for job creators, we have been talking with Jonathan Williams who is chief economist. Vice president of the center for state fiscal reform at the American legislative exchange council, and Jonathan tell us a little bit about Alec. And also, again, give us the website where folks can go to read the rich states. Poor states report Alex has been around now for forty five years created to be a organization that spreads best practices realizing that we don't have forces in the races across state capitals that we are there to talk about conservative free markets.

"Explore that option and President Trump has declared the United States will never be a socialist nation, but many and the democrat party. Clearly disagree. Dr Paul Kengo air from the center for vision and values at grove city. College has this week's American radio journal commentary. And Henry and welcome to American radio journal each year, the American legislative exchange council or Alec publishes a report on policies related to economic competitiveness in the fifty states. Jonathan Williams is chief economist at Alec and he is vice president of the center for state fiscal reform. He has co author of rich dates poor states. And he is here. Now to talk about this year's report. Jonathan welcome back to American radio journal Jonathan before we start talking about the findings of the rich dates poor states report, tell us a little bit about the report. What is it? How did he get started? And what are you researching and finding well this reports now been around since two thousand seven and art Laffer, of course, of Ronald Reagan fame as economic adviser Stephen Moore, and I put it together for these more than a decade now to give state legislators and concerned citizens across the country a way to. Measure their state to hell it ranks economically both in how it's done over the last decade as well. As more importantly where that state is headed and how competitive that those that states policies are for future job creation and economic growth, and what we've really found is over these now ten twelve years that we've been putting together the report, not only our states and state lawmakers paying attention and listening to the findings of the report is that the states have followed the framework becoming more free market, lower tax, more freedom oriented as a state are seeing and enjoying the economic results of those actions, while the states on the other side of the spectrum that have been following the tax and spend approach continue to have major problems economically. And as you develop the report, what sort of factors go into it. We have fifteen different factors that we measure in red states, four states, and why you can lemon see probably a thousand different things that you could rank stateside, and we see all these rankings out there. Today. We chose these fifteen for a couple of big reasons. First of all, we know that these fifteen such as taxes and labor policy and regulation are things that matter directly to the bottom line of estate to the economic competitiveness in the state. We know this from the academic research from small business input from the long tenure research of Arthur Laffer, but more importantly, perhaps even in. We see all these rankings measure things that are very very difficult to actually put a price tag on things like quality of life for weather things. Like that. Now, while they matter for people, we know that state legislators in the fifty state, capitals only can control public policy, and so that's why everything that we measure enrich states poor states. We know has a proven impact on economic competitiveness. But also there are things that state legislators have direct control over as part of their legislative duties you, of course, have been doing this as you've pointed out for a number of years now, and let's take a look at your most latest. Report, which of course, encompasses two thousand eighteen what were the important developments that you noticed in two thousand eighteen relative to where the states were a year or two earlier. Well, one of the big things that we've noticed in the last two years just how good a picture things are now at the state legislative level for budgets and economics. We have seen in this is due to a couple of different things, but because of the economic recovery since the start of the Trump administration, and because of many many good policies such as tax cuts and regulatory relief coming out of Washington DC, very few states are facing budget problems since it's a big reversal from just a couple of years ago, where we saw the majority of states facing red ink in some cases during the very slow economic recovery after nine after two thousand eight and the Obama years, and this has been a huge turnaround. Now where we saw only about a handful of states starting out two thousand nineteen with the budget deficit and. What that's meant is. There's been a lot of discussions about tax cuts. There's been a lot of discussions about how to make states more competitive. But on the other side, those that would like to spend all those extra dollars and take advantage of this windfall. They would like to spend it on lots of different projects. And so that's really been one of the big debates across state capitals in the last year.

Coffers, or is it all still in the discussion stage? Well, certainly we've seen some fantastic wins for the free market side in the states over the last twelve months after the tax cuts and jobs act, and what it meant was for the states that have income taxes they generally start with federal adjusted gross income as well. And what that night was when the federal tax base was broadened, the states had all this extra money, and what we saw was in the in the first few months of two thousand eighteen even we saw several states enact historic tax relief and tax reform efforts of their own such as Iowa and Missouri, bordering states.

Burn and make their tax codes more competitive. So that was the I think the untold story federal tax reform. We know the benefits what it meant at the federal level, but outside of the beltway says nobody really covers state capitals anymore when it comes to the mainstream media, we have all of these great free market success stories and the big beneficiaries.

So it wasn't just a red state phenomenon. Even Bernie Sanders, Vermont us that opportunity to cut income taxes this last year, and then we have Illinois, California and New Jersey, New Jersey, of course, is a state that will probably be falling further in the rankings. Just this last week or two we saw governor Phil Murphy Saini fifteen dollars an hour. Minimum wage Bill into law, making New Jersey, even more expensive for job creators, we have been talking with Jonathan Williams who is chief economist and vice president of the center for state fiscal reform at the American legislative exchange council, and Jonathan tell us a little bit about Alec. And also, again, give us the website where? Folks can go to read the rich states. Poor states report Alex has been around now for forty five years created to be a organization that's spreads best practices realizing that we don't have forces in the races across state capitals that we are there to talk about conservative free markets limited government federalism.

Republican democrat independent libertarian vegetarian, and our website is rich states poor states dot or where you can go to download the new eleventh edition overstates poor states for free.

Thank you for being with us, always great to be with you, my friend. And now we go to the offices of the club for growth where Scott. Parkinson has been watching all the activity on Capitol Hill, and it has been a busy time. Scott good to have you here. Thanks for having me. Let's talk about something that happened over the last week or so and is going to become a major issue through the spring and into the summer, and this has to do with the size of the federal debt and the debt limit. What was the big milestone for the first time in US history? The national debt officially past twenty two trillion dollars, and that's historic because if you look back to when President Bush was leaving office the debt limit had barely past ten trillion. So since the beginning of two thousand nine we've added twelve trillion dollars to the national debt, and we're right back in the middle of another trillion dollar deficit for this fiscal year as we head into March. And then later this summer explain for our listeners, Scott why this whole. Debt? Limit issue is not only important, but we sort of are going to be at a critical juncture once again, are we not? Yeah. We are what happens in March is the debt limit suspension is officially expired, and we will see the US treasury department go through what is called extraordinary measures where they can sell off assets. And find ways to make sure that there's no default on the national debt the period of extraordinary measures can normally lasts several months. So we're expecting the debt. Limit fight to really become a big issue in June and July this summer what I think you'll see is the democrat house of representatives has a budget resolution that will include a version of what's known as the Gephardt rule, and that allows the debt limit to be increased by the amount of the deficit that the budget provides for all that would be necessary. After passage of the budget resolution would be for the Senate to take that up and tack it onto some hidden legislation, and what's known as a budget teamer and pass the debt limit that fashion..

"Rollouts on ice. Eric beim of reason magazine explains and Nancy Pelosi and the new democrat majority in the house one to increase spending and raise taxes Colonel Frank Ryan US. MC retired has an American radio journal commentary on why that would be an economic disaster. I'm Lohman Henry and welcome to American radio journal. The US economy is growing at the fastest rate in decades, and is creating more jobs than there are people to fill them for a look at the factors behind the red hot economy. We turn to Steve Moore, Steve is an economist with freedomworks. He's author of the new book, Trump comics, Steve welcome back to American radio journal, Steve we have had a fourth quarter where the equity markets didn't do well to say, the least and things have been a bit rocky there. But let's talk about the underlying dynamics of the US economy, and particularly the jobs report that came out last week tell us a little bit about that. Well, it's a blockbuster exceeded. Everyone's hope we had three hundred and fifty thousand new jobs when include the upward revisions. We now have seven million for jobs in American people to fill them imagine that that's more people than live in the state of Indiana. That's how many surplus jobs we have a great problem for country, I've wages arising, which is really important. That means paychecks are fatter for workers. They have more take home pay. We have the lowest unemployment rate in fifty years. In fact, I wrote my columnist week saying that this is the best job market for American workers, probably in fifty years and a half a century. So all really good news construction has good manufacturing is good. It's funny. I heard Elizabeth Warren last weekend in Iowa saying, you know, we need to have a Konami works for the middle class. I'm like what is she talking about what planet is she on. I mean, we have the best economy for the middle class today in at least twenty years, and by the way, we also achieve three percent economic growth for the first time in fifteen years. We never. Got three percent growth. I under Obama in eight years and Trump second year in office. We got re percent gross. So something is going radically right with with the US economy. Now, I am worried about the stock market because expense over jerky. It's recovered a little bit so far in two thousand nineteen. But I think that there are a couple of concerns about the economy going forward right now as we look at that jobs market, Steve is one segment of the workforce benefitting over others. Or is this strong job market, also benefiting particularly minority communities. Well, that's a great point. And first of all, it's benefiting everybody. I mean, it's the numbers are so strong. I mean, it's it's every industry is with maybe a couple of exceptions. But almost every industry is benefiting. The really interesting thing about this particular economy word right now is the jobs that are coming back out of the blue collar jobs that remember Donald if you remember this, but about a month before the election. Obama was saying I was. Trump gonna create all these manufacturing construction jobs. You're gonna wait may wave a magic wand. Well, maybe he's got a magic wand because they are back. Big time. We've created almost a million additional manufacturing construction jobs. I was in the midwest about a week ago. And I'm driving down the highway. I got through. I see a big billboard. That says come work for our manufacturing firm. You don't even have to pass a drug test. Well, that tells you how strong labor market is when when companies are saying you have to pass the drug test to come work for that's how desperate businesses our to find workers today. And so and the Wall Street Journal report a few weeks ago saying that the biggest wage gains have been for the lowest income and the middle income groups. So we're actually getting the big increases in the paychecks for the people at the bottom, which is exactly what we wanted to have happened when I wrote the plan with Larry cudlow for Donald Trump is at house is going to benefit, you know, middle class America. Well, I do in the southeast on the. Tax cuts the deregulation. Promoting American energy all that stuff is working in spades. You of course, are author of the new book, Trump comics, so you've really researched and written extensively about why. This is working how important were those tax cuts Stephen terms of spurring this economy. Yeah. Well, the person who has to read my book as Alexandria Zeke. She's just running around the country saying we shouldn't have seventy percent. Actually, I don't know if you saw her interview with sixty minutes, but that's the new lunatic idea of the left that's have the highest taxes in the world that will get jobs, and so Trump, of course, obviously, he's trying to give America the lowest tax rates in the world. So that we attract businesses and capital, the United States, not repel them. And so yeah, the tax cuts. I think we're really critical as as you know, we Larry, and I I really helped put it together for Trump during the campaign is the senior economic advisor. So we really tell the story in the book about how Trump did it. How these these things came into effect? I was watching CNN. Tonight in this first thing all the tax cuts have been a disaster. What did, you know, a two thousand eighteen the you're just closed we got more tax revenues into the federal government than any other year in American history. So how is how is the problem with the deficit of problems revenue when we have more revenues than ever, it's an overspending problem? Everyone knows that well typically cut in tax rates is usually generated more revenue. I mean, if you go back to Coolidge Kennedy Reagan, this is something that normally occurs. A lot of us think that's one of the reasons why the Democrats opposed to because they knew it would work. So you have these tax cuts. What about regulation, Steve, I know in talking with business owners there was especially during the Obama administration. A lot of concern about regulation where regulation was going. There was almost a collective sigh of relief when Donald Trump was elected has his efforts at cutting regulations. Also, spurred this job growth for sure I mean, and that may be a bigger factor than the tax cut. I think they're both important the when I talked to. Small businesses and in big business men and women who run our great companies. Whether it's the guy who runs the corner grocery store or the guy who runs a fortune fifty company. They'll all tell you that one of the big factors was it wasn't just deregulation. Was that, you know, under Obama Obama's administration was anti-business. Right. I mean, they they were not pro business. Trump is pro business, and that shows a psychological effect, you know, through a businessman or woman and you succeed, and you make a profit God forbid, right liberals hate the word profit. Of course, there's no businesses if there's no profit that somehow the government's gonna come along with a Billy club and smash them over the head now businesses. No, hey, I I can go out there and start a business and make money and employ people. And you know, that's the American dream. And so I think a lot of it is just businesses know that they're not gonna get clobbered by government if they dare succeed during the Obama administration. Steve it was often discussed about the amount of capital that was not being deployed by entrepreneurs in this country. Capital that was sitting overseas. Are we starting to see and have we seen that capital? Start flowing back in is that feeding this job growth. Yeah. You're exactly right about that. By the way, he a and economics today. That's exactly what's happening. We we estimate close to a trillion dollars is coming back to the United States. That's a lot of money. We have been talking with Steve Moore Stevens with freedomworks is author of the new book Trump own nominees. Steve tell us where folks can learn more about you and read your writings on various economic subjects and also where they can get Trump follows freedomworks dot org is is the affiliation. And we have so much great stuff. And so many activists all over the country and the book trumping AmEx? You can get it a lot of bookstores or go to Anna's on and it's not an economics book. It's a it's a real book about how Trump thanks and how we operates and how we rebuilt this great American economy. Steve Moore a freedom work. Steve. Thank you for being here. Thank you at the offices of the club for growth. Andy Roth is keeping an eye on the government shutdown. What's happening in congress? Also. Oh, we have a major political development this week. We're going to talk about all of that. Andy good to have you here. Hi, thanks for having me element. Of course, the partial government shutdown is the the big news the president going head to head with Democrats in congress. And Andy all of the discussion has been about what money is going to be spent on Dan the wall, of course, is is dominating there. But we still have a rather large federal deficit. That's getting even larger is anybody talking about that. That's the irony out of all this. The the frustration is that nobody is talking about it. We are now approaching annual perpetual, Chilean dollar deficits and on top of that we're already at twenty two trillion dollars in national debt, which is more than the GDP of our country. So whether the media wants to report on it or not. Or whether congress and the White House wanna talk about it or not we are approaching a debt crisis. And instead we're talking about how we can spend more money on things and not figuring out ways to cut it. Trump to his credit put out a budget at the beginning of the year at the beginning of last year and said here all the programs that we think need to be reduced or eliminated and congress hasn't considered any of it. So there there's obviously a lot of reasons why this is happening, but nobody's holding congress to account congress. It self is completely dysfunctional. There's zero regular order in the house or in the Senate, regardless of who's in control. And now with this debate on the border wall. They can't even come to a solution on that because they believe that they will score points with their voters by obstructing rather than trying to come up with a solution. So nothing is working everything is broken and our debt just keeps going higher in terms of this government shutdown that's going on. And there's been a lot of discussion about who's going to take the blame for it. Do you think that when it comes to President Trump? He really cares about the blame. Or could this even be a situation where with the Donald Trump Republican base? A lot of his voters are saying, well, we don't really care if the government shutdown, and we want the wall. So we're fine with it. Trump is the master at deflecting blame what I suspect will happen. And you're already seen. It is that congressional Republicans are going to cave. I Fred Upton a Republican from Michigan. Former cia. Chairman of the house energy and commerce committee, very moderate member. He's already publicly announced that he'll side with the Democrats to read open the the government. And I think as this drags on. You may see more and more Republicans do the same. So what ultimately will happen is that the Republicans will cave? The Democrats will win the argument Trump will blame congressional Republicans and in those small part, perhaps he should. And then what I suspect will happen after that is that a lot of congressional Republicans will announce the retirement in record numbers like they did last cycle because they do not recognize the congressional Republicans. Don't appreciate the position they've been put in they aren't able to operate like they used to be able to their voters are angry with them because they keep crossing Trump. So they're like to heck with us. I can go out and become a lobbyist and get paid ten times as much it's a very disappointed. Pointing outlook. But that is what I suspect. It'll happen. The congressional Republicans will cave the Democrats will win Trump will blame the Republicans in congress. And then you'll start seeing a ton of retirements, isn't that the point though, Andy, and it's something that conservatives have been fighting for for decades is to try to elect a more conservative Republican conference. That's going to do things like address the debt issue. You just talked about to try to cut back on spending try to do border security and the president, of course, famously wanted to drain the swamp. So if Republicans cave, and then they leave doesn't that just sort of achieve the goal. Yeah. You're right. I mean, it is a silver lining. But the only way to complete that silver lining is to make sure that when those vacancies occurred. The voters elect true conservatives that allows us to talk about a retirement that has already been announced. And this could be a case where conservative Republicans could have a gigantic opportunity. Your home state of Kansas. What's happening there? Yeah..

"So as we look at this, Andy as you've just. Outlined the Republican agenda pretty much grinds to a halt. And the Democrats are taking power in the house with an agenda their own, but Republicans increased their majority in the US Senate, and you still have President Trump sitting out there with a veto pen. So practically speaking are the Democrats going to be able to enact any of their agenda anymore than Republicans can enact there's no they won't be. And that's a good observation. What's going to happen? Is that Democrats know this too? So they're doing merely for theater, they want all voters equally their voters to know. Exactly what they stand for what they're striving to do. So that in the twenty twenty election, including the presidential election. They have something to campaign on saying that they did this that and the other. But you're correct whatever the House Democrats pass it's not gonna pass the Republican controlled Senate. That's the good news. The bad news is is that when it comes to the budget when it comes to spending as. As we've seen in the past the way that they'll resolve things is probably just spend more money on both parties priorities. So that the taxpayers is the ultimate loser. My hope is that that's not the case, but past is prologue. So we'll just have to see what happens as we look at this. Then as you've mentioned, the Democrats are pretty much just gonna put on a show. However, they're going to go up against the master showman who is Donald Trump. And are they really going to be able to out signed Donald Trump in that arena? He seems to be able to command whatever attention whenever he wants. Well, I think the shutdown fight is a great example of that.

"So as we look at this, and the as you've just outlined, the Republican agenda pretty much grinds to a halt. And the Democrats are taking power in the house with an agenda their own, but Republicans increased their majority in the US Senate, and you still have President Trump sitting out there with a veto pen. So practically speaking are the Democrats going to be able to enact any of their agenda anymore than Republicans can enact there's no they won't be. And and that's a good observation. What's going to happen? Is that Democrats know this too? So they're doing it merely for the theater, they want all voters, particularly their voters to know. Exactly what they stand for what they're striving to do. So that in twenty twenty election, including the presidential election. They have something to campaign on saying that they did this that and the other, but you're correct. Whatever the House Democrats passed it's not gonna pass the Republican controlled Senate. That's the good news. The bad news is is that when it comes to the budget when it comes to spending as we've seen in the past the way that they'll resolve things is probably just spend more money on both parties priorities. So that the tax payers the is the ultimate loser. My hope is that that's not the case, but past is prologue. So we'll just have to see what happens as we look at this. Then as you've mentioned, the Democrats are pretty much just gonna put on a show. However, they're going to go up against the master showman who is Donald Trump. And are they really going to be able to outshine Donald Trump in that arena? He seems to be able to command whatever attention whenever he wants. Well, I think the shutdown fight is a great example of that. It's unclear given that we've been in holiday FOX for the last couple of weeks. It's unclear what the effect is. Shutdown is going to have on popular opinion, or on public opinion. And so it's not quite understood who's winning the shutdown site. The Democrats are going to offer up a shutdown proposal. It's going to get countered by Trump. And ultimately, I think we'll get out of it. It's just who's going to win and who's going to get the blame.
