¡Opportunity Vive!

Opportunity Vive is a show that talks about policy in America in the context of the new America with an ever-growing Latino population. We're optimistic about the future and for a good reason. Listen and be inspired.

Like Playing Jenga in Outer Space

With Republicans in full control of the federal government, one thing is pretty much certain: Obamacare is going down hard. But when you’ve got to dismantle the most granular of policy details, while also drafting a massively broad expanse of bureaucratic architecture — not to mention charting the murky waters of DC politics — it can begin to feel like playing a game of Jenga in outer space. This week, we bring things back down to earth with clear commentary on where health care needs to go from here.

Repeal, Replace — Wax On, Wax Off

This week we’re joined by Senator Mike Lee of Utah for a discussion on how to return power to the people, how to repeal and replace Obamacare, and how to reign in the last administration’s extreme executive overreach. (Y tambien hablamos en espanol con Senador Lee, escucha!).

Trump and Trade

Out of nowhere, trade became one of the core issues of the election. But as Dr. Vance Ginn of the Texas Public Policy Foundation explains, trade has always played a vital role in the economic and cultural well-being of the electorate. Now with Trump on his way into the office, will his explosive rhetoric yield real results? More to the point, are those results even a good thing?

Why Obama counties flipped for Trump

This week on Opp Vive, we take a look at the Rust Belt of America, asking why so many counties that voted for Obama in ’08 and ’12 flipped for Trump this past November. The answer might not be as simple as you think.

Three Wise Men

This week on Opportunity Vive, we sit down with three distinct voices in the political realm to hear about how the Republican Party can advance despite the divisive rhetoric of Donald Trump.

The Week After

This week on Opportunity Vive, we take a look at how Latinos helped shape the outcome of the election, and muse on where we’re heading as the year draws to a close.

The tough job of selling Conservatism

This week on Opportunity Vive, we break down what will be needed to rebrand Conservatism in the post-Trump age.

Think freely, live freely

What with all the personalities, all the wedge issues and all the garbage, it can be easy to forget how truly vital core Conservative principles are for average Americans. That’s why host Izzy Ortega takes a moment to delve deep into how, despite America’s changing makeup, we’re still rooted in our deepest principles.

Wake me up when it’s over…

We’re almost at the tail end of election season, which means now might be a good time to actually look into what policy proposals are on the table. Host Izzy Ortega sits down with two political and media experts to comb through the chaos.

I Hurd That

Congressmen Will Hurd of Texas stops by to discuss the changing nature of America’s electorate, Hispanic Heritage month and the 2016 presidential race. Then Rob Henneke of the Texas Public Policy Institute breaks down a new set of environmental regulations that may not be as necessary or simple as previously advertised.
