Time for a Shutdown Reality Check

BY Adam Brandon

Mark Twain once commented “the reports of my death are greatly exaggerated.” This quote should come to mind whenever we hear the apocalyptic forecasts associated with the partial shutdown. Here’s a reality check: the partial shutdown is not nearly as bad as Democrats and pundits are making it out to be. The electricity and water still work and our roads are still paved. From what I can tell, my neighborhood doesn’t look like a scene out of “Mad Max.”

Reinstating SALT Would Strike At the Heart of the 10th Amendment

BY Daniel Savickas

As the 116th Congress gets settled in, Nancy Pelosi and fellow House Democrats are adjusting to their new reality of being back in the majority. With that comes an assessment of their policy priorities for the next two years. Among other initiatives, one of their targets appears to be the reinstatement of the state and local tax (SALT) deductions that were eliminated in the tax cuts package from 2017. A bill has already been introduced by Rep. Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.).

The 'Green New Deal' Is the Worst Thing of All for Green

BY Jason Pye

Democrats in Congress who claim an environmental conscience are pushing a so-called “Green New Deal” meant to fundamentally shift America’s focus to renewable energy sources in the hope of addressing anthropogenic climate change. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) has become the face of the effort, with calls for a top income tax rate of 70 percent to finance the program. The excessive intervention Rep. Ocasio-Cortez calls for would be crippling for the environment, simply because it would slow the economic growth that makes green-energy advances possible to begin with.

Millennials Get Free Markets, But Don't Buy How Politicians Preach Them

BY Yates Wilburn

Right now, countless politicians, scholars, activists, and writers on the right and left are waging a battle for the hearts and minds of American millennials. They often use highbrow language more commonly heard in an economics class than a Twitter feed in a desperate bid to convince my generation that they’re right, and the “other team” is wrong. So far, it could be argued the only Millennials that politicos on either side of the socioeconomic divide have been able to reach are the ones that are already convinced of their respective positions. They’ve only reached those people that already share their worldview, and are simply looking for clever-sounding zingers with which to bludgeon their political opponents.

No New York Times, a Government Shutdown Won't Shrink Economic Growth

BY John Tamny

While some readers of this column are perhaps already familiar with this historical anecdote, it’s worth repeating every now and then that as recently as the year 2000, the state of Ohio had more paved roads than all of Russia combined. Please think about that for a minute. Ohio, a seemingly middle-of-the-economic-pack U.S. state, not too long ago had more paved roads than a country that is eleven time zones large.

CONGRESS — STOP SABOTAGING THE WHITE HOUSE AND GET BACK TO BUSINESS

BY Adam Brandon

The only thing more insufferable than watching Congress govern-by-crisis, is watching Congress govern by self-manufactured crisis. Can we finally stop pretending that House Democrats took back the majority with intentions to advance a policy agenda?
