Cellar Door Skeptics 136: Amazon is NOT a Public God

Listen HERE!
https://www.spreaker.com/user/cellardoorskeptics/amazon-is-not-a-public-god

Cellar Door Skeptics is back this week looking to tackle whether or not Amazon should take over public libraries. A since retracted article from Forbes, stated that Amazon is so efficient maybe public libraries are no longer necessary. The duo takes on this claim and talk about how capitalism always thinks it is better than any social program.

They also reflect on how inflation has created an offset for any tax reform we have seen over the last couple years. All the gains that lower and middle income families and individuals have seen have slowly been drown out by the inflation of goods we purchase.

Lastly the team talk about the new show Who is America. They review a few of the segments on the show, highlight some of the people who decide they will show their true colors, and laugh as the host outs many of the people in public office.

Cellar Door Skeptics 107: Robin Hood – A Tale of Two Taxpayers

#107: Robin Hood – A Tale of Two Taxpayers

Cellar Door Skeptics rejoin forces this week for a show all about the new GOP tax plan. The duo does a deep dive into the income tax bracket changes, how it could affect how much money is collected by the Federal Government, and a look at other countries and their respective income tax brackets. The show is solely dedicated to analyzing this in an effort to make people aware of whom they vote for in the upcoming year. Be prepared to be shocked and amazed at what taxes are being cut, and how it could affect you over the next 10 years.
