The Looming Danger Of The Lame Duck

The buzz around Capitol Hill these days is whether the House will pass a budget, and if Congress will be able to pass individual spending measures, known as appropriations bills. These discussions are important, but as spring announces its arrival, it is already time to think about the fall. That is because Republican congressional leadership may be using the sunlight of springtime to plan for moving bad spending bills in the darkness of winter. For after Election Day in November, Congress will be able to hold a lame duck session. That is a looming danger for our republic.

On the Budget, Republicans Need to Get Serious

It’s a new era of Republican leadership in the House. Speaker Boehner is out, Speaker Ryan (R-WI-1) is in, and just in time for the budget process. Under the influence of the House Freedom Caucus, Republicans finally have a chance to do something about the outrageous spending that is rapidly bankrupting our country. It would all be terribly exciting… except that none of that is actually happening.

Even Liberal Economists Are Skeptical of Bernie Sanders

There aren’t too many things economists all agree on; unlike in the natural sciences, one’s perspective on economics often depends heavily on how one understands human behavior, incentives, and psychology. This is why you have such strident differences of opinion between left- and right-leaning economists on issues like the minimum wage, tax policy, and the ability of government spending to stimulate the economy.

A Progressive Wish List, An Unsustainable Budget

It’s quite telling that the cover of the federal budget for the 2017 fiscal year portrays snow-capped mountains, because the proposals read like a liberal wish list being sent to Santa’s workshop. Despite the absurd recommendations by President Obama, however, the enactment of such policies would have devastating consequences for years to come.

Wage Insurance: Obama's Latest Bad Idea

The Obama administration’s proposed budget contains many atrocities; more spending, more taxes, and a hefty dose of expensive and inefficient regulations that will lower Americans’ standard of living. In other words, business as usual. Tearing the budget apart piece by piece would take all day, but I’d like to highlight one particularly foolish proposal that isn’t getting a lot of attention: wage insurance.

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.

The Congress Strikes Back

Article I of the U.S. Constitution grants Congress the power to make law and to allocate how money is spent in the enforcement of those laws. The president’s role, in contrast, was envisioned by the founders as much more limited. They didn’t want a king, who could govern as he pleased without accountability to the people, and so they restricted his role to Commander in Chief of the military, with the power to make treaties only with the advice and consent of the Senate.
