The Taxes Are Coming! The Taxes Are Coming!
Since before they were passed, the “Bush tax cuts” were demonized by the media and the Democrats (redundant?) as being solely for the wealthy. Like so much leftist rhetoric, it simply isn’t so. The tax cuts enacted under President Bush (43) created a 10 per cent bracket, increased child tax credits, and eliminated the marriage penalty, among other things. This writer must be wealthy because | Read More »
The Petulant Circus Clown Drowns Out any Substance
Was Joe Biden on drugs or did he use Al Gore for his debate prep? That’s the question anyone viewing the debate on TV should be asking. Biden’s appalling petulant behavior, in conjunction with the moderator’s refusal to moderate the debate instead of debate the debate, allowed Biden to get out of control and make a clown of himself. That is all anyone will remember. | Read More »
U.S. With Highest Corporate Tax Rate
Well, it’s official. The socialist country of Sweden plans to cut its corporate tax rate from 26.3% to 22% to improve prospects for new jobs and investment. So where does America – the beacon of freedom – stand in the rankings of corporate tax rates? We’re dead last among industrialized nations, checking in at 35% with another 5% on average for state taxes. Yes, we | Read More »

On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson and Ben Domenech are joined by Curtis Dubay to discuss the unfair and inaccurate analysis of Mitt Romney’s tax plan by the left-wing Tax Policy Center, what a tax plan in a Romney administration may actually look like, and whether or not we even need a federal income tax.

Health Care Tax in 2013

Obama’s Tax Deduction Lie
Obama thinks the American people are stupid. Throughout the debate, Obama regurgitated his talking points about a balanced solution to the debt crisis. In the process he insulted the intelligence of every voter by intimating that the budget can be balanced by eliminating a few tax credits. No, he didn’t commit to tackling the tens of trillions in unfunded liabilities to Medicare and Social Security. | Read More »

No tax break to move jobs overseas
I’m tired of hearing that companies get a “tax break” for moving jobs overseas. The President repeated this a couple of times during his dabate with Mitt Romney. I’ll buy dinner up to $500 for the first person to show me the section in the tax code that does this. Don’t bother, it doesn’t exist. Here’s what they’re really talking about (very simplified): It’s 1992. | Read More »
RIP USA…just another collapsing victim of the cult of liberalism?
A friend of mine posted the above from E.J. Dionne of the Washington Post on Facebook. While the post quickly garnered a number of “Likes” I was incredulous. My response was thus: What a ridiculous statement. Tax cuts allow the rich and poor alike to keep more of the money they earned rather than give it to nameless, faceless and largely unaccountable bureaucrats to distribute. | Read More »
The “Obama phone” controversy
I saw the now infamous video of the Obama supporter who brazenly tells the world that she has an “Obama phone” when it first broke late last week. The woman in the video then goes on to list the qualifications or requirements for receiving said object of governmental largess. That there is really such a thing as an ‘Obama phone’ comes as no surprise given | Read More »
Romney Paid More Than His Fair Share of Taxes….in 2010. MSM Blinked.
So, Mitt Romney released his 2011 taxes. And on cue, Think Progress rolls out this inane hit piece entitled “By Romney’s Own Standard, His Tax Returns Would Disqualify Him From The Presidency”. The summary of their argument accuses Romney of paying more than his fair share of taxes this year. This implies that he is somehow gaming the system or dishonest. However, this outrage — | Read More »
We’re #18 in Economic Freedom
Every year, the Fraser Institute, a Canadian free-market think tank, publishes an economic freedom index for all developed and some developing countries. The index is determined by 42 variables that fit into 5 broad categories; (1) size of government; (2) legal system and property rights; (3) sound money; (4) freedom to trade internationally; and (5) regulation. So where do we stand in the 2012 Economic | Read More »
Republicans Beclown Themselves With Sequester
Last week, I was watching the House debate over the sequester replacement bill, and was struck by the effectiveness of Chris Van Hollen’s attacks against the Republicans. Their absurd gyrations of ideological inconsistency have exposed them to pungent attacks from Democrats. Honestly it’s hard to defend them against those attacks. Pursuant to the Budget Control Act – the absurd debt ceiling agreement from last year | Read More »
The EU and the UN Want to Raise Your Taxes
On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson and Ben Domenech are joined by David Williams to discuss efforts by the EU to tax American airlines, the UN plans to tax tobacco in the US and the growing movement here at home to tax online purchases.

The 47 Percent
Copious pages of commentary have been poured over the kerfuffle surrounding Romney’s newly-discovered comments regarding the 47% who don’t pay taxes and inexorably vote for Democrats. It’s important to note that Mother Jones malevolently edited out two minutes of the video right at the time Romney made the “47 percent” comment. There are a few points that I believe have been overlooked throughout this | Read More »
My older son is a thinking man. Not just that, he’s a conservative thinking man. He is my pride and my joy. Bill called me last week to discuss this whole concept the President has been yammering about – you know the part about how rich people are not paying their “fair share.” Bill wants to know what “fair” really is. And, as usual, | Read More »
