PUSHING FORWARD TO SAVE MORE BABIES
Discussed by Dr. Joe Pojman
with Texas Alliance for Life (www.TexasAllianceForLife.org)

The overturning of Roe v Wade restores confidence in the US Supreme Court and its application of constitutional principles. Some are not so happy, though.

Texas Alliance for Life Executive Director, Dr. Joe Pojman, discusses previous Texas abortion laws, what the law is now, and what we can expect in the future.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

What is the 1854 Texas pro-life law that is still on the books? Dr. Pojman explains that this law has been slightly changed over the years, but still makes abortion illegal in Texas.

Have abortion doctors already stopped performing abortions in Texas?

Have abortion doctors already filed suit in the state of Texas? Dr. Pojman has all the details…

The Texas Heartbeat Bill was passed in 2021. Does the temporary restraining order block this law?

When will the Dobbs Case take effect?

What is the Texas Trigger Bill? Dr. Pojman explains the details of this law that was passed in 2021 and when it goes into effect.

How will Texas, through Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, handle the avalanche of law suits that are sure to come?

Questions/Issues Discussed:

What is Stagflation? What is Shrinkflation? Can we have both at the same time? Dr. Ginn has a great, easy-to-understand explanation…

Is government spending contributing to today’s inflation?

How much did stimulus spending raise the national debt?

Should the bond rate be near the inflation rate? Again, Dr. Ginn explains how this works in a way even non-economists can understand…



PART 2 OF 2 - ECONOMIC STAGFLATION IS HERE. IS A RECESSION NEXT?
Discussed by Dr. Vance Ginn
with Texas Public Policy Foundation (www.TexasPolicy.com)

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Will it be painful to pull ourselves back up from this slump? Dr. Ginn says: “We’ve been on a sugar high and, at some point, that headache – that hangover – is going to happen.”

What will the housing market will look like in a few years? What about the market for household appliances and even new/used vehicles?

How is “recession” defined? What are experts predicting for the next quarter?

To control and reduce inflation, what must our government do? Dr. Ginn believes that the answer is simple: Congress must stop spending money and the Feds must stop printing so much money. br />
