New Year's Resolution: No More Zombie Tax Loopholes

While tonight is New Year’s Eve for the rest of the country, inside the Beltway over the last few years December 31st has been akin to the Night of the Living Dead. Not because worn out Capitol Hill staff and interns wander the streets in a drunken stupor (though this is an accurate assessment), but because dozens of tax extenders set to expire at year’s end are usually reauthorized in bulk by Congress.

Baucus Energy Tax Overhaul is Doubling Down on Bad Policy

Next year is due to be Senator Max Baucus’s last year in Washington, solidified by his recent nomination to be the next ambassador to China; and it’s no secret that the Democrat from Montana has his sights on overhauling the tax code before he leaves. With the business of 2013 quickly coming to a close, details have begun to emerge as to what exactly the Senator is cooking up. Some of the details leaked so far specify how the Senator’s plan changes the way that the tax code regulates the energy industry.

The Unemployment Rate: Obama's Inadvertent "Mission Accomplished" Moment

This morning the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), an office within the Department of Labor, announced the unemployment rate for November 2013. As currently calculated, the unemployment rate has indeed fallen to 7.0 percent. The problem is that since the national economy has deteriorated to such a severe degree over the past half-decade the BLS calculations have become a wildly inaccurate way to gauge the health of the broader economy.

EPA Launches “Feel Good” Tour to Promote the Death of Coal

Despite the fact that the majority of Americans oppose carbon regulation that will drive up the cost of energy, President Obama is determined to use the EPA to bulldoze any and all opposition to his reckless climate agenda.  The EPA will force states to figure out how to pick up the pieces and rebuild their electricity grids once the President’s death sentence for coal is implemented.   And if EPA doesn’t like whatever plan a state develops, the Agency will prescribe the poison and its dosage.

The Massive Labor Reallocation Under Obamacare Part II: Marginal Taxes

Last week, we dove in the massive sea of the unseen implications of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) for the labor market.
