GE Cronies Cuddle Up to Tax Code

Business Week does a great job of outlining GE's tax code shenanigans. In sum, the company has laid out big money to powerful DC lobbyists to take advantage of and keep various breaks and loopholes in the tax code.  This isn't anything new or particularly surprising, but it is a great example of what happens when you have a toxic combination of a long and complex tax code and rent-seeking corporations who have been able to carve out special treatment at the expense of individuals.

"Waiting for Superman", an "Inconvienient Truth"

“Waiting for Superman”, an “Inconvenient Truth”The truth hurts, sometimes the truth is so “Inconvenient” and Hollywood is having none of the truth.  Last night the groundbreaking, jaw dropping devastatingly sad and absolutely truthful film “Waiting for Superman”, directed by Davis Guggenheim (the liberal director of “An Inconvenient Truth”) was not nominated for an Oscar.  Five gripping documentaries were nominated for the big prize; they included: Restrepo, Inside Job, Waste Land, Exit Through the Gift Shop and Gasland.  All of these gripp

Stop Big Government in West Virginia

West Virginia is facing two threats from big government at the state and federal levels: new greenhouse gas regulations from the EPA and a new cigarette tax hike from Charleston. Both are bad fiscal policy. Both would raise costs and harm businesses. Both need to be stopped.

Doing the Right Thing on Spending

Though no one would think it by watching the media’s coverage of Wisconsin, reining in out-of-control spending on public employee unions is a bipartisan issue.  Though only the Republicans have taken reforms far enough in an effort to limit collective bargaining, but it was not a Republican but rather Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo who stated in his inaugural

Now He Must Govern

No real surprises occurred during the Chicago mayor’s race, but the election was a landmark in the sense that the city elected a candidate who was not named Daley. It is hard to see any other way that this election was transformative; conservatives had virtually no chance of electing a mayor in a city which has been ruled by a single party since the Great Depression.

Waiting for Superman...

This past weekend, I had the opportunity to watch “Waiting for Superman,” a heart-breaking documentary about America’s failing public school system.  Sitting with my wife (who is a teacher herself) I could not contain my emotion.  Sadness, anger and utter disgust are a few that come to mind.  The movie covers failing schools throughout the country, and profiles the brave children and few educators that are doing everything they can to improve the system. The prevailing theme of the film: the status quo will do anything to hold on to their power.  Teachers u

Failing More Expensively or Succeeding with Less

Some voices support any sort of domestic government as long as it’s bigger—sometimes so much so that they will believe that any facts available confirm their case.
