The ole bait and switch
In response today to a reporter’s question about whether he was going to raise taxes, President-elect Obama had this to say: (M)y tax plan represented a net tax cut. It provided for substantial middle-class tax cuts; 95 percent of working Americans would receive them. It also provided for cuts in capital gains for small businesses, additional tax credits.

Spending Obama’s Tax Cuts
After Obama’s victory yesterday, I have had to swallow my bitterness and look to the future. The most urgent issue to confront is card check, but that involves a lot of political wrangling and knowing who to pressure to keep it from passing, or mounting the proper legal challenges if it is passed.

McCain has substance, Obama has form. Put political philosophy aside and the two of them might have made a great father-son team. McCain missed an opportunity to hit the ball out of | Read More »
Am I the Only One to Notice This?
Barack Obama likes to go about saying he’s only raising taxes on the top 5% of wage earners. No wonder he has to keep saying this over and over again like nobody believes him. We don’t. And now we’ve heard the next part of this story. On 60 Minutes tonight,, during a discussion of the size of the deficit and how he plans to pay | Read More »
Many Happy Returns
Byron York over at NRO has a good piece on the paltry charitable giving of Joe Biden. According to ten year’s worth of Biden tax returns, the senator and his wife contributed about one-eighth of one percent (0.0015%) of what they earned to charity, well below the two percent average of American households. During that time Biden’s adjusted gross income (AGI) ranged from about $215,000 | Read More »
