A Flat-Out Winner for Tax Reform

This op-ed originally appeared in The Washington Post on Thursday, December 22, 2005 The report issued last month by President Bush's Advisory Panel on Federal Tax Reform landed in no-man's land. The right was disappointed that its proposals were so timid, and the left was critical because the report highlighted the damaging impact of high tax rates on work, saving and investment.

The Return of Voodoo Economics

BY Thomas E. Nugent

When then-Governor Reagan was behind in the polls to then-President Carter, he announced his support for major tax reform and advocated tax cuts to stimulate economic activity. And we all know how that turned out. Reagan’s association with the supply-side economic ideas of Jack Kemp and Arthur Laffer may have very well been the catalyst that propelled him to victory in 1980. When President Reagan actually proposed major tax reform that included tax-rate reductions across-the-board, his critics labeled the plan “voodoo economics.” Another derogatory term, “trickle-down” economics (meaning the benefits of tax cuts for the rich would eventually get to the poor), characterized the economic and political world’s disbelief in the dynamic effect of tax-rate reductions.

Tax Reform Veterans See Hurdles Ahead

BY Jonathan Weisman and Jeffery H. Birnbaum

The two primary architects of Congress's last major tax reform say President Bush so far has failed to lay the groundwork for his ambitious tax agenda and will have to invest a vast amount of political capital to succeed in broadly simplifying the tax code.

Falling Flat

BY Stephen Spruiell

Matt Drudge got conservatives' hopes up for nothing Monday when he ran a story that Speaker of the House Denny Hastert planned to "push for replacing the nation's current tax system with a national sales tax or a value added tax." Unfortunately, Drudge based his story mostly on comments from the speaker's upcoming book, Speaker, rather than real indicators that fundamental tax reform is on the way.

Arizona Needs a Flat Tax

The state of Arizona has created a commission to examine their tax code. While the Arizona government argues that not enough tax revenue is being collected, the Goldwater Institute came out with its own policy study showing the opposite: too much money is being taken. Arizona’s revenues have risen faster than the Arizona economy has grown, proving that tax holes don’t exist. However, the state’s tax rates are still not competitive. Texas, Colorado, and Nevada are regional competitors that have more attractive tax structures.
