Rubio on Obama's Fiscal Cliff Plan: "It doesn't solve anything"

The fiscal cliff is looming, and as FreedomWorks' President Matt Kibbe pointed out, “The $16 trillion monstrosity that is our current national debt is a product of spending too much, not taxing too little.” We need a plan that includes sequestration as well as reforms to taxation and entitlements. Senator Marco Rubio took to the airwaves last night to discuss just this.

Better Late Than Never? Democrats Realizing Obamacare Taxes Will Kill Jobs

In one of the more infamous statements regarding the process in which Democrats sought to force-feed health care reform to the American people, former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi quipped, "We have to pass the bill so you can find out what is in it".

The Problem is Over Spending, Not Under Taxation

President Obama and House Speaker John Boehner are currently negotiating a deficit reduction deal to stop the sequester “cuts.”  The main fight is over Obama’s proposal to raise federal income taxes on Americans making over $250,000 a year. While Boehner claims he is opposed to raising the top two income tax brackets, some worry that he will accept a bad tax-hiking deal in order to stop the sequester.

A Simple Plan to Avert the Fiscal Cliff

What should Congress do on the Fiscal Cliff? 1) Lock in $1.2 trillion in ten-year sequester savings. 2) Extend ALL current tax rates for one year. 3) Reform taxes and entitlements to avert another debt downgrade. Questions? P.S. From now on, every debt ceiling increase should be offset by an equivalent amount of spending reductions, in the same bill. No more kicking the can down the road! That is all.

Are Republicans Set to Cave on Tax Hikes?

A skilled poker player as they say, never shows his cards. Republicans seemingly haven't heard such advice.  With 'fiscal cliff' negotiations taking place in the media of late, they are proving to be poor poker players, poor negotiators, and all-too-willing to fold.

Sequestration and the Dire Effects to State Budgets

With Congress set to convene to tackle sequestration and the fiscal cliff, the talk has once again centered around federal budget cuts and their potential effects. Tax hikes are back on the table, according to a few prominent Republicans this weekend. A large number of difficult military cuts looms. But few are thinking about the other layers of public spending that will be affected. State budgets will see massive effects from a potent mix of direct spending cuts and revenue reductions based, ironically, on the expiration of the Bush Tax Cuts.

Nostalgic Krugman Needs a Dose of Reality

This past Sunday in the New York Times, Paul Krugman opined about a better time in America when the Twinkie was still revered, when families huddled around their black and white television to watch "The Howdy Doody Show" and the wealthiest among us paid their "fair share" by means of a 91% marginal tax rate. Aw, yes the good ol' days....
