Jim DeMint Thinks Trump's Tax Plan Will Get the Administration Back On Track

In the wake of an embarrassing defeat on the health care bill, Donald Trump is looking for a win. Tuesday on radio, Glenn was joined by Jim Demint, the president of the Heritage Foundation, and the two focused in on what went wrong and what President Trump needs to do to with his new tax plan to get things back on track.

"You know, this health care bill was not a Trump property. And when he went out and tried to sell something that was kind of low risk, just low expectations, it just didn't work for him," Demint said.

"I think if he takes a bold stand and goes out there, that he might actually get excited about it and get the American people's (support)."

STU: Jim DeMint from the Heritage Foundation is who we're talking to.

Jim, the tax plan, as we move on to tax reform, proposed by Trump during the campaign had a top rate of 25 percent and a top business rate of, I believe, 15 percent. Do you believe that that's going to be the basis of this tax reform, or is that kind of campaign promise no longer in effect?

JIM: It will be close to that. Kevin Brady has a plan in the House that's a good plan. It's got some border adjusted thing that's pretty controversial. So I think what they're talking about now is, can they pass it and take that out? So I believe Trump's plan and the House plan is fairly consistent. And hopefully they'll come out with something that's bold.

That's what Trump needs.

GLENN: Yes.

JIM: You know, this health care bill was not a Trump property. And when he went out and tried to sell something that was kind of low risk, just low expectations, it just didn't work for him.

STU: Right.

JIM: I think if he takes a bold stand and goes out there, that he might actually get excited about it and get the American people --

GLENN: Yeah, when he built the -- you know, some of the golf courses around that he actually did, they're pretty bold and spectacular.

JIM: Yeah, right.

GLENN: When he tries to schlep somebody else's idea, Trump University, it doesn't go well. Thank you so much, Jim. I appreciate it.

Jim DeMint from the Heritage Foundation.

JIM: Thanks, Glenn.

GLENN: You bet.

First time to talk about the comments that the president has made about the Heritage Foundation being at fault. Nobody has called to get their response. That's incredible.

PAT: Uh-huh.

'They believe their job is to REMAKE your child': WSJ writer warns public schools may be LOST to woke trans activism

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it has become incredibly dangerous, Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier told Glenn on the most recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast."

Shrier's book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, she warned, it could end your parental rights for good.

Shrier made it clear she is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy No. 1 to many activists. Her book has been bashed so hard by the Left that Target has stopped selling it twice, Amazon once banned ads for it, and the American Booksellers Association even called sending it to others "a serious, violent incident."

In the clip below, Shrier explained why she believes "there may be no hope for the public school system."

"You have teachers behaving like activists across the country who have no interest in actually teaching. They believe their job is to remake your child," she asserted. "We're seeing so much evidence of that, I think it's fair to say that it may be too deeply rooted in the ideology being taught in public school. I'm not sure that the public school system is redeemable at this point."

Is California ‘PURPOSEFULLY’ destroying this small business?

It seems like some politicians are purposefully trying to destroy the lives and dreams of certain Americans, specifically small business owners. Dave Foldes spoke to Glenn over six months ago after THIS audience raised thousands of dollars for his restaurant that refused to close: Cronies Sports Grill. Now, despite making progress in his administrative battle against LA, the city of Agoura Hills, California is coming for Cronies instead. And the reasoning is INSANE. But Foldes isn't giving up, and neither are his supporters. It's the ultimate David vs. Goliath showdown.

Trans Activism Will End Your Parental Rights | Abigail Shrier | Ep 110

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it is incredibly dangerous. Just ask Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier. Her book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — just like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, Shrier argues it could end your parental rights for good. She is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy number one to the activists. Recently, the American Booksellers Association even called sending her book to others "a serious, violent incident." Abigail joins Glenn to lay out just how slippery this slope has proven to be and what we — conservatives and liberals — must do to protect our children.

DEADLY Negligence: Exposing the REAL Origins & Coverup of the COVID-19 Pandemic

Who were the people and groups involved with coronavirus research, and what really went down before and after the pandemic began? On "Glenn TV" this week, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to outline a tale of negligence and then, coverup. The elites of the world - the people calling themselves experts - trusted the Chinese Communist Party with one of the most dangerous weapons we can imagine on this planet--a virus.

Glenn reveals who was involved in a definitive timeline, and argues: If proof of a lab leak does come out, the worlds needs to know EVERYONE that was involved. We must expose the coverup and attempt to control the narrative of the pandemic origins. Everyone from Big Tech, the media, the Chinese and even our own government have been involved. What lies behind the coverup could reveal the dirty secret that, in order to cut corners, the academic elites and government entrusted Communist China with a civilization-killing virus.
