Texas Citizen Journal Show: Short Term Pain

On this week’s episode of the Texas Citizen Journal Show, Reagan Reed complains about the thing he hates most in life: paying federal income tax. If tax season doesn’t make you just a little bit more libertarian, then something might be wrong with you.

The worst part of paying federal income tax as a millennial is knowing that a big chunk of it will go into social security- which probably will not exist by the time you reach retirement age. Reagan argues that social security is currently unsustainable and needs to be overhauled with free market reform.

Speaking of unpopular reforms, Reagan also outlines specific steps the Biden administration must take in order to get inflation under control. We won’t hold out breath…

The episode concludes with a survey of the key primary races around the country that will put Trump’s influence over the Republican Party to the test. Will the GOP emerge from primary season a little less orange? One can only hope.
