Illinois Ballot Initiative is a Tax Hike Barely in Disguise

A new constitutional amendment on the ballot that Illinoisans will face in November, the “Illinois Allow for Graduated Income Tax Amendment,” could prove disastrous for the state’s taxpayers and economy. Currently, the Illinois state constitution only allows for a flat income tax system. This amendment would repeal this constitutional requirement that the state's personal income tax is a flat rate across income, and instead allow the state to enact legislation for a graduated income tax.

Which Republican Candidates Can Make the Flat Tax Work and Help the Economy?

BY Stephen Moore and Art Laffer

During last week's Republican debate in Charleston, Senator Marco Rubio attacked Senator Ted Cruz for being in favor of "a VAT tax." Cruz responded that his flat tax plan of 16 percent has the full endorsement of "Reagan economist Arthur Laffer." He was referring to a joint statement by the two of us entitled: "The Cruz/Paul Flat Tax is the Best Tax." (Senators Cruz and Paul have endorsed similar tax reforms.)

Judging the Tax Plans

With the first real votes being cast in the presidential race on Monday, this is an opportune moment to do some last-minute comparison shopping on the candidate tax reform plans. On this issue there’s a lot to cheer about. All the Republican candidates have crafted plans that would slash tax rates for everyone and most would vastly simplify the thousands of pages of IRS tax code too.

In Defense of the Flat Tax

The flat tax is getting a lot of attention—and a lot of criticism—as an increasing number of Republican presidential candidates embrace the idea in some form or another. Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), Donald Trump, Ben Carson, and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) have all proposed their own variations on the idea, with an emphasis on simplicity that seems like common sense to most people.

Hillary Embraces Tax Complexity

If there’s one thing Democrats love to talk about, it’s equality. The egalitarian streak runs deep in the party of Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, to the point where a majority of Democratic operatives have cited income inequality as their primary concern in the 2016 elections. But when it comes to the tax code, equal treatment under the law seems to be the furthest thing from the candidates’ minds.

Big Government Is Bad Government

The recent spate of scandals involving the federal government should not surprise anyone.  While it's important that bad actors in government be held to account, the system corrupts even the best people. If all that comes of this exposed corruption is the firing of a few public employees, nothing will change, and those seeking power over their fellow man will be emboldened.
