  • Cain's Tax Mutiny. New national sales tax on top of the income tax is a political killer

    Wall Street Journal ^ | Oct 7, 2011 | WSJ Editorial
    The real political defect of the Cain plan is that it imposes a new national sales tax while maintaining the income tax. Mr. Cain's rates are seductively low, but the current income tax was introduced in 1913 with a top rate of 7% amid promises that it would never exceed 10%. By 1918 the top rate was 77%. Part of Mr. Cain's appeal is his willingness to challenge political convention, and he certainly has with his tax proposal. Voters like that he isn't a lifetime politician but a successful business owner who has met a payroll and created jobs. But...

    President Obama spun a work of creative nonfiction yesterday in his latest pitch for his jobs plan, fudging the facts of a Boston schoolteacher’s White House visit as he cast the man as a poster boy for the hot-button bill. “I had a chance to meet a young man named Robert Baroz,” the president said at a midday news conference. “He’s got two decades of teaching experience. He’s got a master’s degree. He’s got an outstanding track record of helping his students make huge gains in reading and writing. In the last few years, he’s received three pink slips because...

    BOSTON (CBS) – President Obama used the story of a Boston teacher to push his jobs bill Tuesday, even though the teacher has a job. At the beginning of his White House news conference, Mister Obama told a story of how he recently met Robert Baroz of Wellesley, an English teacher in the city. (Snip) But, Baroz is working in the Boston Public Schools this year as a middle school English teacher. He’s employed through a U.S. Department of Education teaching fellowship. On the D.O.E.’s web site he writes that he’s also employed part-time as an English instructor at Mass...

"What if somebody who was ill-equipped for the office were to ascend to the presidency or vice presidency? What would they do? How long would it take for people to figure it out? I became consumed by this question." It's not surprising that Wallace would choose a public forum to portray Palin in such a negative light. Wallace's name was near the center of post-campaign speculation about unhappiness with Palin within the McCain...

In 1996, Gore had moved the Democrats to tears by claiming that when his sister Nancy died of cancer in 1984, he vowed then and there to oppose the tobacco industry. How courageous – and completely untrue. The Times found Gore campaigned in 1988 boasting of his tobacco-farming prowess. So he lied through his teeth.

This past Saturday the president was at it again telling a crowd in Ohio “Chrysler has repaid every dime and more of what it owes American taxpayers for their support during my presidency.” Glenn Kessler does an outstanding job ripping the president apart at his blog the Fact Checker but the key to Obama’s argument are the words “during my presidency.”...

Not only was his response to Representative Paul Ryan’s budget proposal not reasonable, it was dishonest and childish. Agree or disagree with his ideas, Ryan (R-WI) has done the heavy lifting on the 2012 budget and he did so knowing that it would immediately make him a target for those on the left. This alone should bring to him some well-deserved respect. The President, rather than give a nod to Ryan’s work and then list where he disagrees simply attacked the character of Congressman Ryan and other Republicans...

    Madison — Democratic Gov. Jim Doyle's administration on Friday told Republican Governor-elect Scott Walker that he would have to cope with a $2.2 billion deficit in the state's upcoming two-year budget, but this brighter-than-expected forecast contained more than $1 billion in hidden pain. To arrive at the favorable estimate, the Doyle administration's estimate assumed that Walker and lawmakers would make spending cuts that have yet to actually happen - two more years of state employee furloughs, no pay raises, a virtual hiring freeze and belt tightening in state health programs. Without that $1.1 billion in savings, the state's projected shortfall...

The Department of Health and Human Services study, released Tuesday, concludes that somewhere between 50 million and 129 million non-elderly Americans have a pre-existing condition -- the kind of condition insurance companies can use to deny coverage. The study further found that 15-30 percent of...

    WASHINGTON (AFP) – President Barack Obama, with Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke at his side, insisted the US economy was "strengthening" Tuesday despite foreboding data and a fresh stock market slump. Obama admitted there was "great concern" about the recovery, amid increasing anxiety over indicators which may point to a slowing of the rebound, and with expectations low for the latest unemployment figures due out Friday.

    Remember the refreshing moment when freshman congressman, Joe Wilson got so frustrated with the HC spewing of our President in his State of the Union address he yelled “YOU LIE?” Everyone was shocked! However, my antenna detected a deafening roar of approval from all the neighborhoods across our nation. Wilson was rude, out-of line and right on in his assessment. However, in this case Obama is saved by the fact that his falsehood wasn’t intentional. There’s no way he read the bill. OBAMA TO KYL: YOU LIE AND YOU KNOW IT! So here we are with the most transparent and...

    If this video doesn't convince you that President Obama wants single-payer healthcare, then maybe an 83-page document, a joint project of the departments of Health and Human Services, Labor and the IRS, will convince you. This document examines the effects that the new healthcare regulations would have on existing, or "grandfathered," employer-based health care plans. Here are some facts, based on this document: Up to 51% of employers may have to relinquish their current health care coverage. Estimates show 66% of small employer plans and 45% of large employer plans will relinquish their grandfathered status by the end of 2013....

    "How much time should she do?" That question was posed by Newsweek columnist Anna Quindlen back in 2007. "She" is a woman who aborts a pregnancy; the "time" is the number of years she should spend behind bars for it. Quindlen's question suggested that women were regularly imprisoned for having abortions prior to Roe v. Wade--and if we elect Republicans, thousands of women will again be headed for the jailhouse. It's the myth that just won't go away. On Tuesday, California Senator Barbara Boxer used it to attack challenger Carly Fiorina's anti-abortion stance, saying it would "mean women in jail....

    Connecticut’s Attorney General Richard Blumenthal, having just been caught in a BIG LIE about military service during the Vietnam war, is now considered damaged goods, and I mean DAMAGED GOODS BIGTIME. Even with any support coming to him from the state of Connecticut employees unions, he will be remembered for this brand new scandal.

    Here is video of CNN's Paul Begala and Anderson Cooper discussing the news that Democrat U.S. Senate Candidate Richard Blumenthal has repeatedly lied about having served in the military "in Vietnam." Begala said it is "indefensible" if in fact - as it appears to be - that he never served in Vietnam. BEGALA: "There is no good or ethical reason that he could have done that, Anderson. Uh, the guy ought to have a chance to respond. I saw the Times story as well. . . . You read those four words - 'I served in Vietnam.' That appears to...

    With the 15th anniversary of the Oklahoma City Bombing, many liberals exploited the actions of one deranged individual to tar millions of patriotic Americans as extremists and potential terrorists. Bill Clinton said that it was legitimate to draw "parallels to the time running up to Oklahoma City and a lot of the political discord that exists in our country today." The mainstream media and liberal commentators are awash with news stories like “Hate: Antigovernment extremists are on the rise—and on the march” in Newsweek. In an excellent piece “What's behind the anti-Tea Party hate narrative?” the Washington Examiner’s Chief Washington...

    Did the President lie? Blago thinks so. Rod Blagojevich’s team asked the court to issue a rial subpoena to President Obama to get him to answer some key questions in Blagojevich’s trial. The ex-guv is accused of attempting to sell Obama’s vacant Senate seat. The motion was made public but was supposed to have been heavily redacted. Unfortunately for the prosecution, the computer file released to the press was easily restored to an un-redacted state through simple computer features. So, here is the un-redacted subpoena:
