The Heartland Institute’s Donald Kendal, Jim Lakely, and Chris Talgo present episode 369 of the In The Tank Podcast. The COVID pandemic is over, if you ask president Joe Biden. Now, we need to sift through the rubble to see just how much damage was caused by the government lockdowns. The latest National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) scores, otherwise known as the Nation’s Report Card, came out showing major drops across the board. Also, there have been a few more stories that have come out recently showing just how terrible the government’s response to COVID-19 was.
