How is the U.S. Deciding its Tax Policy?

Benjamin Franklin said that the only two certainties in life are death and taxes. But why do we have taxes in the first place? What are they for, and why must they be so certain?

Lois Lerner scurries to neighbor's house to avoid answering questions about the IRS scandal

Lois Lerner really doesn't want to answer questions about her role in the Internal Revenue Service's targeting of conservative and Tea Party organizations. The former head of the powerful tax agency's Exempt Organization Division refused to testify in front of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee in May 2013, invoking her Fifth Amendment rights.

Stop the Online Sales Tax!

The Senate is expected to vote on the Marketplace Fairness Act during the upcoming lame duck session after the November elections. Now, don’t be fooled by the innocent sounding bill name.

Why is Burger King Moving to Canada?

What happens when people and business flee the government regulations that burden them? In a somewhat shocking recent announcement, classic American company Burger King has said that they plan to move their corporate headquarters to Canada in order to escape the United States’ punitive corporate taxes, the highest such tax rates in the world.

Camp Tax Plan: Admirable Failure

Central Planners' Latest Buzzphrase: Promise Zones

The White House is touting something called "Promise Zones" as a model to spur economic growth. These areas feature federal spending with the usual strings attached, attempting to spur economic growth and civic renewal. What the country needs is not set of federally micromanaged zones, but to restore the original American promise for all of the us: here we can be free.

How Would Reagan Fit Into The Tea Party?

Recently, I attended a speech that attempted to lay out a case that Ronald Reagan would not have been a Tea Party President. The speaker, a conservative not terribly familiar with the Tea Party movement, made an interesting case.

Fundamental Tax Reform

The U.S. tax code is a tangled mass of complexity, containing more than 9 million words. The immense difficulty in navigating such a document creates endless loopholes and opportunities for abuse by well-connected insiders, while at the same time distorting investment decisions and hindering economic growth. It’s time to scrap the code and replace it with one that is low, flat, fair and honest. Ultimately, all Americans should be able to file their taxes on a form the size of a postcard.
