McCainonomics: McCain's Economy Platform: Big Tax Cuts, With Caveats
WSJ ^ | March 3, 2008 | BOB DAVIS

Posted on 03/03/2008 1:32:46 PM PST by calcowgirl

WASHINGTON -- Imagining how John McCain, the Navy war hero, would play the role of commander in chief has been easy. Imagining how John McCain, the policy maverick, would lead as chief executive of the U.S. economy has been tougher.

In a wide-ranging interview last week, Sen. McCain offered the most-detailed account to date of his thinking on economic issues.

(snip)

Climate Change

Sen. McCain's biggest regulatory effort is likely to come in the field of climate change. Along with independent Connecticut Sen. Joseph Lieberman, who was then a Democrat, Sen. McCain introduced the earliest version of a cap-and-trade system in 2003, and the pair have refined their ideas since. Under their plan, the government sets emissions goals. Companies that can't meet their targets must buy permits to produce carbon dioxide, either from companies that produce less CO2 than they are permitted, or from the government.

The system may require a large regulatory apparatus. In the latest McCain-Lieberman version, the government would auction off carbon-emission permits. According to Harvard economist Robert Stavins, such sales could raise $50 billion to $100 billion a year.

An Energy Department analysis says Sen. McCain's plan raises energy prices so much that it would reduce economic growth.

"I hear this interesting argument that somehow this would cost more money to our economy," says Sen. McCain. But, "I am absolutely convinced that innovation, technology, and using the entrepreneurship of America will come up with technologies which will save money, be a boon to our economy, and clean up our environment." He's unlikely to get much argument on this from his Democratic opponents; Sens. Obama and Clinton co-sponsored Sen. McCain's legislation.

“Companies that can’t meet their targets must buy permits to produce carbon dioxide, either from companies that produce less CO2 than they are permitted, or from the government.”

And those companies will absorb that cost and not raise prices to cover it, right? LOL

Gee, we Americans have a great choice this year. We either vote for a tax and spend Democrat who believes in junk science or we vote for a tax and spend Republican who believes in junk science. We are so screwed.

How anyone can vote for this quy on this issue alone, even with the "Lessor of Two Evils" game, is beyond me.

He is going to end up destroying the economy and giving away our sovereignty to the UN by the time he is through with this nonsense.

And the only thing the McCainiacs can say is "well he is better than what you would get with a Democrat".

Yeah I hate to say it but if it was Hillary v. McCain, the lesser of two evils would be Hillary.

Obama is another story.

I like how they call them "sales" and that they will "raise" $$$. They are TAXES and FEES, nothing more.

Is he freaking INSANE????

Based on his Amnesty and Global Warming positions, I think the answer is yes.

Big Tax Cuts, With Caveats

Hey John, why don't you try this caveat on for size --- reduce spending.

Yeah, I know it's an alien concept to most Republican politicans these days (including our current President -- a prime offender), but it's the only responsible (read: conservative) course of action.

And campaigning on such a platform is smart politics. The last President to emphasize reducing the size and scope of gov't while campaigning for President won two landslide victories (in '80 and '84).

Also from today's WSJ:

Heating up the Global Warming Debate, If There Still Is One

Everyone from Al Gore to Yvo de Boer, the head of the United Nations climate program, has said that the debate over global warming is over. The folks at the Heartland Institute didn’t get the message.

With the slogan, “Global Warming Is Not a Crisis,” the think tank (which between 1999 and 2005 was funded by ExxonMobil) kicked off a two-day conference this morning in New York to debunk what it calls a “fake consensus” on the human causes of global warming.

The conference program, featuring a slate of scientists and politicians, is a familiar litany of arguments against climate change orthodoxy, and includes panels exploring everything from the Medieval Warm Period to the failures of the Kyoto Protocol to the impact urban heat islands have on temperature change. Today, the conference released its rebuttal of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change reports, arguing that global warming isn’t as bad as commonly made out, isn’t caused by humans anyway, and doesn’t merit expensive schemes to combat it.

But the real heat comes from the conference taking place at all. Many in the blogosphere consider global-warming skeptics like those on parade in midtown Manhattan to be at best flat-earthers and, at worst, paid shills for the oil industry.

If the USA is going to have a flaming idiot for President, then it just as well be a vigorous young one such as Obama, instead of a dried up old white man. At least the former can give a decent speech.

Barring something utterly unforeseen we have McCain and we have the democrat. There IS NO VIABLE ALTERNATIVE. Sit the election out and we still get McCain or the democrat. Write-in Hunter or Thompson or your father-in-law and we still get McCain or the democrat.

It is quite true that not all Americans deserve this situation. But it is also true that the United States of America has earned it. Which, at the moment, is profoundly depressing.

If I want to “imagine”, I’d rather imagine that the dhimmicrats find a constitutional way to block McKennedy from the presidency (since he was born in Panama), and then we’ll be forced to nominate someone with integrity for the Republican runner. Of course, we could then do the same with Hillary (born on the moon) and Obama (born in the land to hope).

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
January 12, 2007

Lieberman, McCain Reintroduce Climate Stewardship and Innovation Act

Bill Improvements, Mounting Warming Impacts Attract Co-Sponsors to Bipartisan Measure

WASHINGTON – Senator Joe Lieberman (ID-CT) reintroduced the Climate Stewardship and Innovation Act (S. 280) today with his longstanding ally, Senator John McCain (R-AZ). Co-sponsoring the bill are Senators Barack Obama (D-IL) and Olympia Snowe (R-ME), who had co-sponsored the 2005 version of the bill, and Senators Blanche Lincoln (D-AR) and Susan Collins (R-ME). The most bipartisan of the Senate proposals to reduce greenhouse gas emissions across all major sectors of the US economy, the new bill quickly won endorsements from the National Wildlife Federation, Environmental Defense, and the Pew Center on Global Climate Change.

“When former skeptics cite melting habitat as the reason polar bears are now threatened, you know the global warming debate is over,” said Lieberman. “The American people want action now because they understand the alternative is bequeathing a diminished world to our children and grandchildren. Our comprehensive legislation has attracted bipartisan support because it solves the global warming problem without weakening the nation’s economic position or imposing hardship on its citizens. By using the power of the free market to promote the rapid and widespread deployment of advanced technologies, we will strengthen this country’s economic position even as we protect our grandchildren against the threat of a diminished future.”

“We continue to work with the scientific community, industry, economists, environmentalists, the faith-based community, and other stakeholders to ensure that we are fully addressing the serious problem of global warming in a manner that has both economic and environmental integrity,” said McCain. “I am confident that given our will and what’s at stake, America can and must assume its proper leadership role in addressing the preeminent environmental issue of our time, the consequences of which so directly affects our national interests. The costs of inaction are enormous, and the national security concerns related to our inaction cannot be ignored. That is why I will continue working with my colleagues to further improve this legislation to craft and implement a market-based policy that will efficiently combat global warming in a manner that will serve our nation well for many years to come.”

“With each passing year, the consequences of federal inaction on reducing greenhouse gas emissions become more devastating for our children and grandchildren, and the range of solutions grows smaller,” Obama said. “This bill offers a comprehensive solution that relies on American will, ingenuity, and technological expertise to solve one of the greatest problems of our generation, and it deserves consideration by the Senate as soon as possible.”

You know, he's just worthless as a candidate except for a few laughs at his expense. After reading his latest "Global Warming" incentive, I may just focus on "survival techniques" for the next 4 years or so.

The one thing McCain might offer is a conservative Veep. The fool's bound to self destruct at some point and who knows? When the rats turn on him, maybe it'll be an impeachment.

There is only one slim chance for us. We must put honorable men, who care about the interests of the American people, in both houses of congress. Then, just maybe, we can limit the damage the next president will attempt to do. And try to put someone who is fit for the office, in the White House, in 2012

If we cannot do this, the damage done to this country may be severe and irreparable.

I realize I may be whistling in the dark...but, remember Bill Clinton was elected after running on a "middle class tax cut" that he abandoned within a week of inauguration.

I'm definitely not a big McCain guy, but these are trying times for conservative/Republican candidates at all levels.

Maybe the guy is just saying what he has to in order to get elected.

McCain needs to be charged for emitting excess greenhouse gases out of his pie hole. Drill ANWR. Mine oil shale. Build refineries. Break free from mooslim oil sheiks. That ought to be McCain’s economic and energy plan. Instead he’s playing carbon credit bingo with liberals because its “hip and cool” and will bring in the votes.

I guess an economist sees that as raising money. Wouldn't most businessmen see that as an unnecessary $50 billion to $100 billion per year expense?

A tax scheme is a tax scheme is a tax scheme.

What is surreal is that he would then say out loud and for the world to hear that he doesn't know about economy. Especially when I continue to hear that 'economy' is the first issue on the majority of voters mind. I can't wait to learn who is giving him a back-room class on economics, probably somebody preaching urban enterprise zones.

McCain has had Carly Fiorina as an economic adviser, stumping for him on the campaign trail for over a year now. After destroying Lucent and HP, now she is qualified to advise a presidential candidate on how to run the country?

Even his staff implies he’s incompetent.

http://www.usnews.com/blogs/capital-commerce/2008/3/3/john-mccain-economist-in-chief.html

“If this comes down to some policy wonk debate between McCain and Hillary or Obama, well, we’re not going to win that one,” is how a John McCain political adviser, in a recent chat with me, assessed the Republican presidential candidate.
