    That is what got Rudy elected in the liberal city of NYC. The left had been so pro criminal for so long that the city had a real crime problem, and Rudy came in and made the city safe again.

    The only thing I was disappointed in was to hear Bush say there is a "inequality of wealth" problem. That is democrat class warfare rhetoric and a bunch of BS or lies.

    It is a lot like Bush saying that there is a man made global warming problem when it is BS and lies.

    I am not sure what his strategy with all of this is unless he is trying to steal the bogus issue away from the democrats and use it in a different way.

    Let me make sure I understand this: There was never any crime for leaking Plame's name and the prosecutor knew this from day one, yet he is complaining that someone might have lied about a recollection even though the recollection is moot and will never point to any underlying crime.

    The judge should have thrown the case out early on on a matter or principal and the prosecutor should be hung for wasting millions of taxpayer dollars.
  • Bush's Health Insurance Proposal

    Hendrix to steve-b
    "Bush's plan is similar to the Clinton scheme to tax people on the "imputed income" they would receive if they rented out their houses."

    No it is not.

    When an employer pays for your health insurance, that is compensation. Basically, it is the same thing as if the employer gave you the money as wages and you used it to buy health insurance. Under current tax law, it is not taxed.

    However, Clinton was advocating phantom income where no money changes hands. That is totally different and absurd.

    What Bush is advocating is a step in the right direction of lowering health care costs. When an employee does not have to directly pay any health care costs, it causes some employees to use too much health care (because it is free) and to pay too much for health care (because it is free). In short, it makes are free market not work for the cost of health care.

    The media has less influence, but they still have plenty to do damage. Anytime there is a method for broadcasting propaganda, that propaganda is going to have an effect and influence some people. It is just like advertising. It does not work on everyone, but it works well enough to get some people to buy your product. Bush and the republicans have got to learn to effectively push back and challenge the media and point out what they are doing. That needs to be done daily and it is not being done.

    Hendrix to Dasaji
    That "sweet health insurance plan" is one of the major factors that is causing our high health costs in this country.

    Allow me to briefly explain:

    A free market economy works when people make buying decisions based on a cost/benefit analysis. That decision helps make sure that people don't buy too much or pay too much for them. Furthermore, it makes sure that the prices, which are determined by supply and demand, are correct as determined by the market.

    If you take that decision making process away from people, it leads to the wrong allocation of resources, high prices, wrong demand and supply, etc.

    Our government has made tax laws that make health care "free" or without cost to employees who get free health insurance from their employers. Therefore, there is no cost/benefit price decision making process when they run to the doctor for a cold or a scratch and it is free. In short, people waste, overuse, and buy things at too high of a cost when they are not paying for it directly.

    The fix is to not have insurance that covers every little scratch, cold, etc. and is not totally free to the person seeking medical treatment so that the person will have to decide how much health care is worth the cost and whether to get the care in the first place.

    Also, the tax laws are illogical in the sense that employees get health care from untaxed dollars (compensation that is not taxed) from their employers, yet people who buy health insurance themselves (self employed, unemployed, etc.) have to pay for it with taxed dollars.

    The main problems that are causing high health costs are (1) too much insurance that covers too many non-catostrophic illnesses and thus leads to using too much health care, (2) bad tax laws that give people "free health" care and cause people to use too much and pay too much for health care.

    In short, the government has caused this problem with tax laws and insurance laws that make insurance companies provide health care coverage that covers too many things.

    If this were left up to the free market, there would not be any health care problem in this country. However, government intervention caused the market not to work.

    "It's not class warfare rhetoric. His father worked for Nixon, and Stein himself has a great conservative resume."

    It is class warfare rhetoric. He is using the exact same language and logic that the Left is using, talking about inequality of wealth and income distribution, etc. It is pure Marxism no matter how you slice it or dice it.

    "It is well to remember that even von Hayek said that there is a role for government in maintaining a level playing field so that the free market works properly."

    He was not referring to wealth redistribution, socialism, and the Welfare State, which is what the Left is trying to lead us into. He was talking about a limited role of government to make sure there is good contract law, good anti-competition laws that prevent people from colluding and avoiding competition, etc. You have misquoted him and his ideas.

    "I don't know what macro factors are producing this situation, but it's beginning to look to me as though the free market is not functioning properly. If it were, surely failure would not be rewarded so handsomely."

    You obviously don't have a clue about free market capitalism. If these people were really failing as you say, they would not be paid what they are being paid. The market pays people what they are worth. You have bought hook, line, and sinker into the Left's propaganda about "executives making too much money", "too much wealth and income inequality", "people are not living a higher living standard than in the past", etc. Every bit of that is a lie. People today are living a higher living standard than every before, including the middle class. Most people could live on one income if they really wanted to live a lifestyle that comes from one income, but they want more and more (bigger houses, big SUVs, etc.) and the government is taxing more and more, so it takes two incomes to get all of this.

    Ben Stein is a liberal on fiscal matters--not a conservative. Nixon certainly was not a conservative either. He even did such stupid things as price controls, etc. Ben Stein is dead wrong about our economy, and so are you.

    Ben Stein is correct in his article about the media trying to bash Bush into low approval ratings. The media Bush bashing played a large part in the last elections, sending many Republicans out of office as a consequence.

    However, Mr. Stein sounds like a liberal democrat with his class warfare rhetoric. In fact, he even sounds like Senator Webb on that point. There is no inequality in our economy (That is a bunch of Leftist B.S. straight from their old Marxist rhetoric.). Our free market economy should be the only distributor of income and wealth, and our government should not interfere or try to reallocate what our free market economy has allocated. Mr. Stein calls himself an economist, but he is not much of one if he does not understand that point.

    "You are subsidizing that $X million. Stop corporate welfare and this problem will go away."

    WRONG! Taxpayers are not subsidizing anyone's compensation. That is misinformation in this article by an author who does not have a clue about basic tax law. Corporations are taxed on the profits that they get to keep. If a corporation passes part of the profit to employees as compensation, the corporation should rightly get a deduction for the compensation it paid to the employee because it did not get to KEEP that money. However, the employee pays the tax on the compensation so there is no tax avoidance or subsidy of any kind involved. Just more lies and nonsense from dumb Leftists.

    "Adding insult to injury, taxpayers actually subsidize these bloated CEO salaries. The federal government gives tax breaks to corporations for those salaries, to the tune of hundreds of millions, if not billions, of dollars."

    The author of the article is a labor law attorney and it is clear that he does not have a clue about tax law or basic economics. The reasons corporations get a tax deduction for compensation that they pay to employees (including executives) is because the corporation no longer has that money (it paid it out). That compensation is taxed to the person who got it (the employee or executive) instead of the corporation that had to pass it on. This is not a tax subsidy. This guy is a complete idiot when it comes to basic tax law or economics.

    Hendrix to A. Pole
    "Should the owners be shielded from liability?" Absolutely.

    The corporation is the one conducting business and thus it is the only one that should be liable for the debts of the business. Corporations serve a vital purpose of pooling capital from lots of people and allowing one entity to use the capital in our free market system.

    "How one and the same person can have two "separate identities"? Can you have free market without personal responsibility?"

    Again, the corporation has the responsibility, and rightly so because it is performing the business.



    "The legal construct of corporation is to serve the common public interest. If this plain truth is forgotten it will lead to the erosion, reduction and abolishment of this construct."

    WRONG. The legal construct of the corporation is to make a profit for its owners. It has nothing to do with the common good--that is Marxist language.

    "If government cannot impose tax/redistribution obligations on the rich, should they expect the same government to use its resources in protection of their assets? Should they expect the poor and middle class to risk their lives in defending the country and legal order?"

    The government should be neutral and protect everyone's assets, rich and poor alike. The rich are paying taxes, so they should get the same protection as everyone else and they should not have to pay more to get the same protection. Wealth redistribution has nothing to do with that, and if the poor and middle class want to go to work for the government, that is not the fault of the rich. In fact, the poor and middle class are getting exactly what they are getting paid to do. The rich should not be forced into a Marxist wealth redistribution scheme to get the same government protections and benefits as everyone else. I would say you have faulty logic with this premise.

    "Clearly, you do not know Marxism. Marxists believed that capitalism is a necessary step on the way to socialism. More free market and inequality, the better."

    Clearly you are misrepresenting Marxism. Marxism wanted capitalism to fail and that is why it wanted inequality from capitalism, but what you failed to state is that Marxists want wealth redistribution to make people equal. Everyone knows that wealth redistribution is a Marxist idea. I am surprised you don't know that.

    Your tagline is nonsense. Our free market system works and capitalism works every place it has ever been tried. The poor countries that you site are run by corrupt dictators who oppose capitalism.

A corporation is a legal entity, so it is created by government and gets a liability shield and separate identity from its owners, but that has nothing to do with free market economics.

    It is not the function of our government to redistribute income or wealth, and our government should not be concerned about how the income or wealth is distributed. That is only a concern for Marxist governments that do not believe in free market capitalism.

    We have a free market economy based on capitalism and it is the sole method for determining how income and wealth is distributed. Our government should not try to undo the distribution from our free market economy through Marxist redistribution schemes.

    Does anyone believe our Founding Fathers thought that our government should take from the rich and redistribute it to others to prevent wealth inequality?

    The republicans need to hammer the democrats as Marxists and call all of this economic equality talk socialism.

    "Kind of like how when people conserve electricity, the electric companies raise rates to maintain profits."

    Electric companies are mostly monopolies, and thus they are not subject to our free market system. Entities that are not monopolies (health care) cannot raise prices because of competition in our system (they would lose market share to the other competitors).

    Learn some basic economics and it will take you a long way to understanding all of this. Unfortunately, most people don't have a clue about how our free market system works or basic economics.

    Hendrix to what's up
    "Pres. Bush is trying here to turn health care over to the free market. Far from socialism."

    In our market system, people make their purchase decisions (how much to buy) based on the cost of the item being purchased.

    However, our government, though tax laws, set up a system where people health care for free without having to make any decision on the cost of using it. That leads to people using too much healthcare, which drives up the cost of health care. Our free market is not working correctly with health care because government tax laws (and state laws which set minimum insurance standards that are way too high) have taken the price decision from the user of health care. When people have to make a decision about whether to go to the doctor (for smaller things) because of cost, our system will start working properly again and health care costs will go down because people will stop wasting it and using too much of it.

    There's a vote loser. Recalls the phrase: "We are going to take things away from you for the common good."

    Bush is not going to take it away. He is just going to discourage too much FREE insurance coverage by not allowing it to go untaxed. If your employer wants to give too much coverage, it would still be able to do so but it will be taxed. The end result is that insurance coverage must only cover big things, not every cold, etc. or people will use too much of it when it is free and that causes the price of health care coverage to go up. Again, too much free insurance coverage (from employers and the government) has caused the high health care costs in this country.

    "That's not even close to a fair analysis. As it stands people with individual coverage are left paying with after tax dollars while group coverage gets a 100% deduction. This is an effort to balance that as well as to continue to encourage higher deductibles which eliminate waste in the system. People run to the emergency room with colds or pains on a regular basis as well as uncounted trips to the doctors which could be handled with over the counter meds. Waste is a killer and the high deductible do wonders. The break in premium so far outweighs the higher deductible since the insurance carrier knows the end result will be far less claims when it's our money we're spending they can pass it along and still come out ahead. So far it's working extremely well and health savings accounts are booming."

    "Basically if you dont have health insurance you get a tax break. If your job gives you health insurance you'll pay tax on it to cover the new tax break. Redistribution at its worst!"

    You've got it all wrong. When you receive insurance from your work, it is tax free. However, if you pay for it yourself, you get taxed on the dollars you used to pay for it. Bush is trying to put them on equal footing, which is the right thing to do. Plus, and this is what really needs to be done, TOO MUCH INSURANCE COVERAGE AND FREE COVERAGE FROM EMPLOYERS IS WHAT IS CAUSING HIGH HEALTH CARE COSTS. Until people understand that, and it does sound counterintuitive, we will have health care problems.

    Ford and the big three have been doing this for years--dressing up their junk cars as new, good designs and selling them to bankroll their failed business plan.

    Ford and GM deserve to go broke and out of business if they continue to do business as usual. Bankruptcy may actual wake them up and give them a chance to dump the union failed business model.

    Very good post timm22.

    The left wants more government intervention to redistribute wealth, Marxist style. It is as simple as that. However, I don't think income equality should be a function of our government or even a worry for our government. That should be left to our free market system. I highly doubt that our founding fathers would have thought that was a function of our government. All this phony talk about income inequality is just that, a bunch of BS and cooked statistics.

    "The telephone survey of 1,004 adults"

    There are 300 million people in this country and we can come to a conclusion based off a poll of 1,004 people? I don't have that much faith in statistics, even if done correctly.

    The best thing Bush and the republicans can do is veto and thwart the democrat agenda, and use good sound arguments for doing so. That will piss the democrats off and start them on a war and show that nothing has changed. The democrats want everyone to believe that it was only the republicans who are partisan.
