Republicans Should Tie Tax Cut Extension to Bailout
There’s been much talk about extending the Bush tax cuts. Republicans favor it, and, since Bush’s name has some how, some where, been linked to the cuts: Democrats obviously oppose it. In the next 24-48 hours, however, Democrats will likely need Republican votes–badly. Why not tie Republican acceptance of the bailout plan with making the tax cuts permanent?
So, what’s next?
Monday was an historical day for taxpayers. 228 Representatives, both Democrats and Republicans, said no to the outrageous H.R. 3997, a.k.a. $700 bi unconstitutional, socialist bailout scheme.What’s going to happen next?
Why Obama will Screw the Economy
**Recently Lehmen brothers went down in flames, Merril Lynch was bought out by Bank of America, and Obama is still getting contributions fron Fannie and Freddie. I was watching Kudlow & Company and they were saying that the worst thing that someone could do is raise the Capital gains tax. Why beacuse it will deter investment, and without capital, companies are unable to innovate and | Read More »
The McCain/Palin campaign directors have overlooked one of the most profound and relevant story of Sarah Palin’s governorship: “The $1,200.00 that she gave back to each family of Alaska!” Why they have not exploited this amazing story is beyond me? I believe a whole T.V. special could be devoted to impact that this money had on the lives of poor and middle class Alaskans. Interviews | Read More »
Straight from the JFK Playbook
I can not find a more elegant way to describe the need for Senator John McCain’s Pro-Growth Tax Policy than those uttered by John F. Kennedy during a speech to the Economic Club of New York on Dec. 14, 1962:”There are a number of ways by which the Federal Government can meet its responsibilities to aid economic growth. We can and must improve American education | Read More »

Obama taxing his way to higher oil prices
The pitch for putting some of the economic burden of $4-a-gallon gasoline on the oil industry served a dual purpose for Obama: It allowed him to talk up an economic issue, seen by many as a strength for Democrats and a weakness for Republicans. – As the Headline read out of Florida on Friday.The “pitch” being referred to above is Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama’s | Read More »

Finally, a tax-me-more fund
Thanks to action by the Kentucky Public Service Commission, big spenders and enviro-activists will be able to put their money where their mouths have been. From the PSC press release: “In an order issued today, the PSC granted Kentucky Power’s request to begin a “green pricing option” that allows customers to purchase renewable energy. A customer will be permitted to purchase up to 500 blocks | Read More »
Barack Obama on Taxes
The Wall Street Journal reports that once again the United States is second only to Japan for the highest corporate tax rate at 39.9% average (federal and state combined). This is 50% higher than the average of our international competitors combined and only strengthens the argument that American companies are becoming less competitive globally because of our domestic policies. Our corporations remain strong enough for | Read More »
I’ll Take Your Dollars And Give You Change
We like change. We believed that change would flow from the fountain of Barack Obama’s audacity and hopefulness. Then we realized change would be flowing from our back pocket. With one hand, Obama picks our pocket through higher taxes. With the other, he offers us back “change.” We reduced Obama’s fancy rhetoric to one phrase: I’ll TAKE YOUR DOLLARS AND GIVE YOU CHANGE. Publicize Obama’s | Read More »
And you thought looters only targeted vacant property…
Cross-posted on Right Michigan at www.RightMichigan.com. They often say that houses tell stories. They witness families, growth, birth, death, drama, joy, sorrow, you name it. They weather storms, they provide comfort, they alternately offer financial risk and security and they’re where the heart is… awwwww. A home, though, is not, necessarily, where the kitchen sink is. At least not if that home is in the | Read More »
*Bad Candidate? The Media is Soaking You in One!!
*I will probably do more than one blog this month….90 days to election and the needle is swinging right. Here’s some nuggets to chew on….From Obama’s book “Dreams from my Father” Obama harbors negative racial stereotypes as Reverend Wright, his mentor for 20 years, as Obama states in pages 98-104 “Black nationalism, a steady attack on white race would be justified if it could deliver.”*MY | Read More »
