What You Need to Know is the powers in Washington, D.C. are dominating our lives. The powers in DC are so powerful, so strong, that they are threatening We the People and the rights that we have.

Will the Biden Social Spending Plan Raise Middle Class Taxes?

President Biden said no one making under $400,000 will see their federal taxes go up. That's a lie... In fact, under his plan, an average family who earns over $50,000 will see a tax increase. That was a quote from Republican House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy on September 30 while discussing the Biden $3.5 trillion Build Back Better plan now being debated in congress. Here's a quote from President Biden: I give you my word as a Biden: If you make under $400,000 a year, I'll never raise your taxes one cent. But, I'm going to make those at the top start to pay their share in taxes. One of these guys is lying. But as they say, "There are three types of lies -- lies, damn lies, and statistics." While facts are always facts, when things get complex, politicians tend to manipulate statistics to fit their desired outcome. Nonetheless, one of these guys is more right than the other one. Should the proposal pass, either taxes are going to go up for the middle class, or they're not. That's what this week's "Money!" podcast is about: cutting through the rhetoric and finding out exactly what Biden's Build Back Better social spending plan promises to do, who it will affect and who's really going to be on the hook to pay for it. As you listen, keep in mind this is a moving target. The bill is likely to have major changes and spending reductions before it passes, if it passes at all. But if nothing else, we thought it would make for a fascinating glimpse at how something as seemingly simple as how policies are paid for is often anything but.

This week, that political struggle came to a new head when a prosecutor accused the current leader of the country, Prime Minister Ariel Henry, of being involved with the killing. The Takeaway was joined by Jacqueline Charles, Caribbean Correspondent for the Miami Herald to discuss the ongoing power struggle.  Why Larry Elder's Run Has People Talking About Black Republicans Leah Wright Rigueur, author of The Loneliness of the Black Republican; Joe Watkins host of “State of Independence” and former aide to President George H.W.

The corrupt regime currently occupying the White House continues its descent into a full-blown authoritarian monarchy. Will these ghouls continue their power grab? Speaking of corruption, Gen. Milley reportedly tried to block president Trump's access to nukes, and Nancy Pelosi pressured the Pentagon on safeguards to prevent Trump from ordering military action. If an acting general and speaker of the House collude to usurp power from a sitting president, isn't that the definition of a coup? According to the Left, they were just trying to do what's best for the country. NDAs are being used across the country to silence sex offenders while protecting predators. Now some are calling for a stop to this common legal practice. In studio, we're joined by Chrissie Mayr, comedian and host of the Chrissie Mayr podcast to bring a little levity to this crazy world. Hollywood hypocrisy was on display at the Met Gala, where AOC wore a "Tax The Rich" dress to an event that costs $30,000 per ticket. It's becoming clearer every day that these people don't care about the common folk and in fact enjoy reminding everyone else that they're the superior class.

Americans are losing money. New data from the Labor Department show that REAL wages (wages adjusted for inflation) fell by 1.2% between July 2020 and July 2021. So, while the mainstream media likes to tout the superficial increase in wages -- big media is refusing to consider the very real effects of inflation that are eating Americans' spending power. Trish sets the record straight...and gives some actionable ideas on how to protect against inflation. Meanwhile, why is it up to private citizens to now rescue Americans stuck in Afghanistan? How crazy is that? And, Senator Amy Klobucher indicates she's open to packing the court. Will Biden's commission to study the court result in four new supreme court justices?

Be it resolved: Meritocracy is killing the middle class

Meritocracy has long been championed as a way of attaining success through hard work and skill; society's best and brightest are rewarded based on their performance, not their background. But some people have started to poke holes in this theory, arguing that meritocracy, as it exists today, is an illusion. Critics argue this foundational principle has been co-opted by society's elite, allowing them to transfer social status and wealth to their children by limiting the competition they face whether it's attaining higher education or gaining lucrative employment. The faux meritocracy of the 21st century is exacerbating inequality and diminishing opportunities for middle and lower class families and youth. While not perfect, others argue that meritocracy is the best system we have for conferring society's resources on individuals thereby rewarding human talent. Meritocracy has transformed over a century or more Western societies mostly for the better, giving the poor and middle class a chance at upward mobility and including women and other historically disadvantaged groups in the collective pursuit of individual success. Social mobility is stalling not because of meritocracy, but due to institutions' failure to complete the meritocratic revolution and fully embrace its core principles and ideas. Arguing for the motion is Daniel Markovits, Professor of Law at Yale Law School and author of The Meritocracy Trap. Arguing against the motion is Adrian Wooldridge, political editor of the Economist and author The Aristocracy of Talent. QUOTES: DANIEL MARKOVITS “Meritocracy has restructured education in such a way that having rich parents is almost a necessary condition for getting the kind of education that you need to get ahead.” ADRIAN WOODLRIDGE “Inequality between the upper and middle class is widening due to a lack of meritocracy. And the best solution to the problem is more meritocracy, not less meritocracy.” Sources: CNN, HBO, The Institute of Art and Ideas, Fox News, CNN The host of the Munk Debates is Rudyard Griffiths - @rudyardg.   Tweet your comments about this episode to @munkdebate or comment on our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/munkdebates/ To sign up for a weekly email reminder for this podcast, send an email to podcast@munkdebates.com.
