Hiking Oil Taxes Is A No-Brainer in More Ways Than One

Obama's New Plan: A Big, Big Mess, Not A Recipe For Economic Or Job Growth, Reads More Like A Blueprint For Shoring Up His Restless Democratic Base

Obama’s New Plan: A Big, Big Mess, Not A Recipe For Economic Or Job Growth, Reads More Like A Blueprint For Shoring Up His Restless Democratic Base

Speaking in the Rose Garden this morning, President Obama unveiled his new fiscal plan, but like his latest stimulus bill, it’s been met with mostly skepticism and criticism so far. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell summed it up: “Veto threats, a massive tax hike, phantom savings, and punting on entitlement reform is not a recipe […]

Why 'Across the Board Spending Cuts' are not the Answer

Why ‘Across the Board Spending Cuts’ are not the Answer

There is a dark side to non-specific, across the board spending cuts. The budget amendment offered by Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) is a case […]
