It’s the Spending, Stupid

deficit

Barack Obama, who seemingly has remained in campaign mode since first entering public life, continues to insist House Republicans obey his command to hike tax rates on upper income earners.  If Republicans do note cede to his demands, Obama is willing to let everyone’s taxes go up and to cut one trillion dollars from the budget, a disproportionate amount of ...

Why Tax Rates Instead of Loopholes?

tax form

The Obama Administration has been adamant about raising tax revenue by raising marginal rates rather than by closing loopholes and capping deductions, even though the latter solution would raise as much revenue as the former. Why all the insistence on rates? Loopholes in the tax code have historically been used to manage behavior, as well as to reward and punish ...

Bartimoro on MTP: All Taxes Not Equal

maria bartiromo

It’s no coincidence that hundreds of major companies across the U.S. announced plans to lay off thousands of workers the day after the elections. While the president continues to promote a ‘tax the rich’ approach many don’t realize the difference between taxing income and taxing investment dividends. This week Maria Bartiromo joined the “Meet the Press” round table for discussion on ...

Republicans Will Have to Swallow Tax Hikes

Screen Shot 2012-11-29 at 12.21.57 PM

As I’ve said previously, I hate tax increases, but I’ll settle if a 10:1 deal is reached.  Ten dollars of spending cuts, including welfare state cuts, for every one dollar raised in revenue.  It’s a rational deal.  If we can retake the Senate, and maintain our majority in the House; then perhaps we can discuss making other changes more palatable ...

Obama’s Plan: Tax Now, Cut Later

imagesrug-pulled-out-small2

Obama has demonstrated zero flexibility on his insistence that higher tax rates for the wealthy kick in on January 1, 2013. To those familiar with “progressive” modus operandi, it is not surprising that the White House and their “progressive” political allies envision Medicare and other “entitlement” savings happening ten to twenty years from now. This is what “progressives” call a ...

How Falling Off The Fiscal Cliff Impacts You

Screen Shot 2012-11-20 at 4.42.34 PM

I’ll say it again, Democrats want to go off the fiscal cliff.  They’ll get their tax increases – $600 billion dollars worth– their revenue increases, and cuts to defense, which has been a goal of theirs for the past ten years.  Goodbye Bush tax cuts, Hello Obama tax hikes.  With the fledgling coalition of ‘cliff jumpers’ led by Sen. Patty ...

Line in the Sand

Paul-Krugman-Is-A-Dumbass

Barack Obama stopped in Burma, which he insisted as a “diplomatic courtesy” on calling Myanmar (perhaps pronouncing Pakistan Pahhhkeeeestaan no longer makes him cool enough for the UN), where he managed to repeatedly mispronounce the name of Aung San Suu Kyi, the Nobel winner who led the fight for a free, democratic Burma.  If that was not embarrassing enough for ...

Americans willing to pay higher taxes if spending cuts made

tax form

A new Rasmussen Reports poll shows that a portion of respondents feel that higher taxes are acceptable, but only if real spending cuts are also made. President Obama wants Congress to hike tax rates right now and have Congress discuss spending cuts at some later time. The reality being that the federal government will get more money to spend and will likely never ...

Democrats Want To Go Off The Fiscal Cliff

Screen Shot 2012-11-15 at 11.42.42 AM

During the president’s Nov. 14 news conference, he channeled the Sandy response as a “metaphor” for how the federal government should operate. “It’s been aggressive and strong and fast and robust and a lot of people have been helped because of it…that’s a pretty good metaphor for how I want federal government to operate generally, and I’m going to do everything ...

My Prediction: Romney Wins Comfortably

Screen Shot 2012-11-05 at 11.37.45 PM

The day has arrived.  In about twenty-four hours, the stains of Barack Obama will be wiped clean and honor and dignity will be restored to The White House under President-elect Mitt Romney.  It hasn’t been an easy road.  Conservatives waged a brutal primary battle that left us with a scarred nominee – Romney – coming out of the gate to ...

Obama suggests adding another dept to government and raising taxes in second term

obama_5_max_enlarge_809509280

Clearly, our federal government isn’t big enough. In a Monday morning interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe”, President Obama suggested that a new Secretary of Business be created. Of course the new  Secretary will need a whole new government department of bureaucrats to go with his or her position. “We should have one Secretary of Business, instead of nine different departments ...

What Makes Free Birth Control Expensive

Michelle Stansbury

Initially, when my local pharmacy informed me that the nine dollar co-pay on my birth control was now waived, I was surprised. When they went on to ask for my grocery card to give me gas points on the birth control I didn’t pay for, I was appalled. Free birth control and gas points sound picture-perfect, if you ignore the ...

I’m Barack Obama, and I’m Going to Deceive You in this Message

Do you think this title is harsh? Maybe. But is it true? Absolutely. If you watch his most recent ad, President Obama is using the same old lie: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/12/obama-mitt-romney-tax-rate_n_1962187.html (the video is near the bottom). Why is this deception? Well, I’ve written about that before… many times. President Obama is trying to convince Americans that Mitt Romney paid a lower tax rate ...
