Which Republican Candidates Can Make the Flat Tax Work and Help the Economy?

BY Stephen Moore and Art Laffer

During last week's Republican debate in Charleston, Senator Marco Rubio attacked Senator Ted Cruz for being in favor of "a VAT tax." Cruz responded that his flat tax plan of 16 percent has the full endorsement of "Reagan economist Arthur Laffer." He was referring to a joint statement by the two of us entitled: "The Cruz/Paul Flat Tax is the Best Tax." (Senators Cruz and Paul have endorsed similar tax reforms.)

The Disappearing Governors

The Iowa caucuses may have only muddied the waters in the presidential race, but they almost definitively decided one thing: the next president will not be a governor. That’s an amazing revelation because just one year ago all the smart money was betting that the next president would be a Republican governor.

Both of these bills mean that workers will no longer be tethered to barriers to business caused by the state, and the West Virginia economy will be allowed grow free from government inefficiencies.

Louisiana Needs Budget Reform, Not Tax Repression

In Louisiana, fiscal integrity is going from bad to worse. Already, the state is facing the largest budget deficit in its entire history, at a whopping $700 million this year, and shortfall projections for next year reaching as high as $1.9 billion. However, in a misguided attempt to try to solve this behemoth of a problem, newly-elected Governor John Bel Edwards has proposed a massive package of tax hikes that affect all walks of life, from personal income to industry. What’s worse, if he has his way in imposing these hikes, the state residents could be feeling the brunt of the costs as early as April of this year. Clearly, Edwards isn’t fixing what ails the state.

An Article I Awakening: Congress Moves to Reclaim Its Full Constitutional Authority

Boldly wielding his pen and phone, President Obama has shamelessly used executive power to bypass those pesky Republican majorities in Congress. But these broad powers that he has used (and abused), the executive orders and the overbroad regulations, can in most respects be blamed on decades of Congressional atrophy. Which is why it is so encouraging that reasserting Congress’ constitutional authority has finally become a top-line issue in Washington D.C., with the launch of multiple major projects dedicated to the restoration of the full range of powers in Article I of the U.S. Constitution.
