New Podcast: David Harsanyi of the Denver Post – The Politics of Taxes and Fiscal Policy in Colorado

March 18, 2009

The Obama administration has recently presented its budget in the midst of a recession. Denver Post columnist David Harsanyi believes that while most “presidents helped ease us out of these tough spots by easing the burden on Americans,” the tax provisions within the budget show that “Obama has engaged in the opposite.”

In this edition of the Tax Policy Podcast, Tax Foundation Manager of Media Relations Matt Moon talks with Harsanyi as he offers some political analysis of the Obama adminsitration’s fiscal policies, arguing that the President now owns the economic crisis. He also briefly reviews fiscal policy in Colorado.

Harsanyi’s March 11 column, “Now You Own It, Mr. President,” can be found here.
