Tax Foundation on Glenn Beck

February 15, 2010

Tax Foundation President Scott Hodge appeared on Fox News Channel’s “Glenn Beck” program on February 5 to participate in a panel discussion on budget problems among states with progressive policies — most notable among them, California. Other fiscally troubled states are experiencing similar problems, however: tax systems that are heavily reliant on high-income earners, out-of-control spending, promises that can’t be met and millions off the tax rolls. Other panelists included Josh Barro, a fellow with the Manhattan Institute (and former Tax Foundation staff economist) and Troy Senik, a contributing editor with the Center for Individual Freedom.
