Wyoming Liberty Group
In a recent poll conducted on behalf of the Wyoming Liberty Group, Wyoming taxpayers overwhelmingly supported our Taxpayer Protection Pledge by saying they would be much more likely to vote for a candidate who had signed the pledge. In the same poll, voters said they believed Wyoming could get it's deficit spending under control through cuts in state spending and not through tax increases. Listen in as Charlie Katebi talks with Amy Edmonds about these important topics in this week's podcast.
Several states have been moving their health care systems in a more patient centered direction. Reforms that empower patients to find better value in their health care systems is a win-win scenario for both the patient and taxpayers. Their patients now have both the right information and incentives to find the best health care at the lowest price.
Listen in as Charlie Katebi talks about two such reforms in this week's Wyoming Liberty Group podcast.

My name is Charlie Katebi. I'm a policy analyst with the Wyoming Liberty Group. I’d like to thank the Department of Health for researching and bringing greater attention to Wyoming’s lack of healthcare transparency, and why we need greater clarity for patients.
When recently asked over 65% of Wyoming citizens said they would be more likely to support a candidate for public office who had signed the Taxpayer Protection Pledge. Why? Because a majority of citizens do not want to pay higher taxes, which is why it's so important to know if your local legislator has signed the Taxpayer Protection Pledge. Listen in as Amy Edmonds talks with John Birbari about the pledge.
We read frequently about employers who desperately want to hire and put people to work. And we often read about how young people are desperate to find jobs “with a living wage.” So why aren’t they teaming up and living happily ever after? Where’s the disconnect?
Is putting people behind bars the best answer for taxpayers and our communities? Wyoming Liberty Group welcomes Anthony Vibbard who will be working on this very issue. Listen as he and Amy Edmonds discusses his work on Criminal Justice Reform and some of his early impressions of Wyoming's justice system.
