Defense, Defense (S4E2) by TheInnerLoop published on 2013-05-09T14:45:19Z This week on The Inner Loop, your hosts Howard Marlowe and Michael Willis take the field and talk about issues that should be defended in congress today. From the art of debate to the roles of the house and senate, all is up for discussion today. Our first guest is Dr. Rich Arenburg, Adjunct Lecturer in Public Policy at Brown University, Northeastern University and Suffolk University and co-author of Defending the Filibuster: The Soul of the Senate. Dr. Arenberg talks about the important role of the filibuster and how it has been properly used in the history of the Senate. Later in the show, David From, State Director of Americans for Prosperity in Illinois, defends the flat income tax and why a proposed state progressive tax will not only hurt business growth but will burden 85% of taxpayers in Illinois as well. Will this damage progress in Illinois? Is your state similarly affected? Marlowe and Willis debate the facts here on The Inner Loop.
